. You are returning to your childhood home to visit your deceased mother's best friend Monica and Monica's two daughter's whom you grew up with. You haven't seen them in several years (for reasons explained in the game). In addition to these three ladies, there'll be plenty of other characters in play (friends, foes, neighbors, stalkers and the "Coffee-Shop Girl").

Where the Heart is" is a first-person POV adult adventure where you control the Male Main Character. There will lots of female characters (primary characters and supporting characters) to seduce / romance / reject / be rejected by (Remember: You can always reload)
There will be some minor / major plot storylines with a primary focus on conversation based choices & action based choices. 
Some characters will be easier/harder to "crack" and some relationships will be a slow-burn romance (or corruption) while others will be a quick passionate affair (or rejection). 
It's up to you to get the required results by figuring out what characters like or don't like and making the right choices to get there.   "Where the Heart is" is being developed using the Renpy gaming engine with Full-HD (1920 x 1080) rendered graphics.

Just downloaded & played episode 9.  It was absolutely superb!!!  The graphics continue to be great along with the storyline keeping us in suspense while we reformulate strategies for the different people in the game.  Keep up the great work.

Glad you like it.  Latest details can always be found here:


Superb game on all levels.  Great graphics, engaging story line, and nice mix between slow romance and fast action.  Well done!

High quality game. History, graphics, characters, dialogues, humor: all worked well. It is pleasure. Thanks to developers. My question is: will the next episodes be available for free, if so, in what month can episode 9 come out? Curious to see what the developers came up with for a date with Jenna on Wednesday?

Glad you like it.  Latest details can always be found here:


I have the previous versions.. how do i install new update and keep all play history from the previous versions?  so i wouldn't have to start it all over again when downloading the newest version?

Glad you like it.  Latest details can always be found here:


Save games will always carry forward when you download the new versions, so no worries about losing data

Episode 8 was a great update to a great story.  Absolutely loved it.  Can't wait to see what happens next.  Great job.  I really enjoyed it.

Episode 8 is out and is available for free to everyone.  Details on my Patreon page:


It doesn't show that it is free.  Your Patreon site still wants us to be a patron in order to download episode 8.

Your Patreon site still will not allow a download without being a patron.  I have tried to download the Mac version & it always takes me to the sign up for patron page. 

Patreon is free to join.  You need to have a login to access the posts.  And non-paying members still get access to the game download links

Okay, thanks.
