Even though I have a clear idea of what the OP asked there's no games coming to my mind right now, especially no game lacking H-content.Most "All-Ages" material gets released for consoles so it's harder to find since the PC originals are always 18 . I believe many premises of Kanon were re-used in Clannad. There's actually a lot of All Ages versions of dating sims, but they are ussually released for home consoles, not PC.Obviously, they're not simulators in the whole sense of the word, rather adventure games.I might add, you're getting the idea all VN's/SN's are dating sims which is untrue.Also one with not too much Ecchi (or none at all), mainly because I don't want anyone accidently stumbling upon it. Thank you~ Please specify what you mean by "dating sims".If you need games that are focused on dating (which means, you have to arrange dates, pick dating spots, topics to talk etc etc) then there's only 3 or 4 or those, mostly made for Win95 or even DOS and all are pretty much hentai.Dating simulation games demand extensive experimentation, trial and error.They are built to anticipate and encourage that style of play.
If you walk off the path, you'll be pushed back onto it. The systems in these romance-focused visual novels are usually not robust enough to support complex social sims, they're more like long and pretty choose-your-own-adventure novels.
It isn't a good game because it’s hilarious to date pigeons, it's a good game because of what it does to you after you become attached to all the pigeons and then play again one last time in order to "fulfill the promise." The epilogue is the real story.
Another hurdle I see people experience when starting out playing dating sims is that they spread themselves too thin.
If you’ve ever been curious about the genre, this is your excuse to jump in. Bad ends, like the aforementioned assassination, exist to teach players how to engage with most dating sims.
Since dramatic romances are often the main focus of these games and are necessary to lead the stories along their branching paths, you are expected to fulfill your obligation as a good sport and at least attempt to fall in love.
