A downloadable Visual Novel for Windows, macOS, and Linux

"Our Home." is a work of fiction that explores themes of escapism, self-determination, and the importance of deciding one's own path in life. What is important to you, and what do you wish to protect? What is home? Is it an idea, or a place to go?

Emily Westenson is the oldest daughter in her family. Faced with mounting responsibilities and stress, a family tearing itself apart, and a sense of drive and creativity that have all but vanished from her, Emily faces each day with cynicism and exhaustion. Is this the way it has to be? Does she have to go it alone?

Presented by a team of about 30 collaborating visual novel creators for NaNoRenO 2017 in a month's time, "Our Home." draws on challenges close to the heart of the creative soul. It explores mature subject matter, mixing wit, drama, romance, and heart.

It's not often that you learn something about yourself by reading a book or playing a game. An evocative story that explores the often-unspoken problems we go through, and the vulnerable courage we need to steel ourselves to live. Thank you for your beautiful work.

Thank you for taking the time to play our game! I'm glad it resonated with you so well, it means we accomplished our goal :)

I should have been asleep 4 hours ago, but I had to keep playing this. I don't even have words for how much I enjoyed this game - this story. This was an experience; a well-written, believable, and relatable one. The characters and the world feel real in every way. I became easily invested and found myself nearly in tears several times. I only finished two of the endings and look forward to exploring to find more. I am very impressed with this project! I cannot believe it was made in a month's time. It has so much heart. Thank you for sharing!

so this is only GxG and there is only one RO?

(Edited 1 time) (+1)

Sorry for the late reply! It is only GxG with only one RO. The focus of the story is on the MC and her struggles; the romance isn't the main focus. Hope that helps :)
