Visual Novel: Home for the Heart


home for the heart sunofes logo
Celine (name changeable) is a college student whose parents had recently lost their jobs. She lost her scholarship after failing to keep up her grades due to her family problems, and on top of that, she even got kicked out of the dormitory after being unable to pay the monthly rent. With nowhere to go, she seeks the help of her best friend, Lyle, who refers her to a family friend who accepts boarders in their house. But the said house already has occupants, cousins Joshua and Philippe, who seem to find something to fight about in every little thing. Caught in the middle of a fierce rivalry, how will Celine manage to get through this stage in her life?

She may look innocent, but she's got a lot more bite than it seems.

The master of the house, Joshua sure likes to flaunt this fact. He flaunts most of the other assets he has in life too, come to think of it. Born as the only son to one of the richest business tycoons in the country, he's not used to hardships in life, at all. No wonder he found it hard to relate to Celine. That is, at first.

With his smart, businessman looks, it would be hard to see Philippe as a casual, everyday guy, but that's exactly who he is. He's a go-getter, a high-achiever, and a straight-A student, who still finds time to hang out after class and attend weekly council meetings, as part of a student council. Despite his busy schedule though, Philippe never forgets to make time for the things he love the most-- or perhaps, the one he loves the most.

Prematurely judged by many as a queen bee, Lyle's regal looks doesn't match her sweet personality at all. She can be quite child-like at time, with Celine even acting as an older sister to her. However, she's a very supportive friend, who's willing to help at any cost. But of course, that's because she can afford it. Once she's got her thoughts set, though, there's no way to change them back.
