The goal of Project LRNJ is to create an entertaining console-style RPG that teaches Japanese. This game is called "Slime Forest Adventure", and it is a simple NES-like CRPG which currently introduces the player to hiragana, katakana, and kanji. Development is underway to cover grammar and vocabulary.
