Words Within Our Hearts.Sypnosis:
- Words without Our Hearts is a series of Otome games featuring 6 possible Love interests in the first game, and seven in the second game. The game takes place in a town known as Chesdale, where the protagonist used to live as a child. This game takes place during the second half of the protagonist’s Second Year of high school when she returns to Chesdale to attend the private school, where hopes and dreams take top priority above all else, known as Cheshire State Westford academy. There, she reunites with her childhood friends, Mia and Mina, beginning her new days at the new school.
The protagonist has no special talents or hobbies, so when it’s time to go looking for a club to join, she really isn’t sure if she should join a club at all, but with a bit of convincing from her friends, she decides to check out the CSW journalism club. Upon arriving to the club room after school one day,what she saw is not what she expected. Instead, she saw what appeared to be a… detention center for delinquents. The members weren’t doing any work, and there was a guy that appeared to be grabbing his head in frustration and yelling at everyone.
Turns out, the club is in a terrible mess to the point where the club will be shut down in six months. Jeremy, the leader however, does NOT want this to happen. He has been raising this club since he first attended high school (now in his 3rd year). Sadly, due to a series of unfortunate events last year, the club somehow suffered a major setback and hasnt been able to recover ever since. Jeremy however, is determined to get the club out of the slump and regain its former glory before he graduates.
Will you be able to help Jeremy and the crew get back on thier feet? Will you be able to even find a new romance along the way? Will you be able to figure out what was the tragedy that caused such an calamity amongst the club and its members? Will everyone’s hopes and dreams never be fufilled? Or will the club be shut down for good?** Characters **Love Interests: (These are dateable)Name:
