Comptiq (コンプティーク Konputīku?) is a Japanese computer game magazine, first published in 1983, by Kadokawa Shoten. The name "Comptiq" came from combining the words "computer" and "boutique". Originally a PC magazine, its focus shifted from computers to computer games. As of September 2003, it has been known as a "MediaMix Game Magazine". The magazine is sold every month on the tenth.

The magazine is split into two sections: one with information about games, and one with manga information (usually made after popular H-games). It's also known for revealing information on upcoming games and includes a gift in each issue. However, unlike most game magazines, Comptiq does not publish game reviews.
