Is there any extra content in this one that is not in the 18+ version?

It's good to see Homeward get more attention in the regular forums. I've played through this route in the regular release, and would recommend this game based on that. Samu-kun put a lot of work into this, and it's a lot better than most of the things that you'll see coming out of this forum.

No, nothing to see here for those who already played the adult version. Sorry.

I love this visual novel. it was very great; so great i even spent all night just to go through all the endings. When you play it you can actually feel the emotions and passion through the dialog. The endings were perfect, out of all of them i liked Sora's the best, even her story was amazing but a little odd. I watched the alternate ending for sora and i actually thought that she was gonna die :(

WOW
I really like this novel... can feel the emotions flowing.

The music, also, a great selection of tracks. It's my Tracks-list this week.

I love the scene:
in the amusement park when everything is revealed to Nonami. The emotion that the text transmit, the images, with her eyes filling with tears, the pianist rising his notes and the reader's throat closed in sorrow...


Thanks, Samu-kun.

Thanks for the comment! That's in my opinion the best scene in the story too. Although I think you're referring to the adult version of Homeward instead of OneStory. XD

I mean, in the OneStory version, when Riku tolds Nonami
that he is leaving and she is shocked:
"R-Rii-kun...? You're... joking right? T-this is just some... funny joke....... right....? Hey...! You can't say........ this is serious!?"

Oh, man, I love that scene.

The science club's mecha dinosaur! Hahaha, so good! :) Loving it so far :p

Edit: Played through Sora's story, haven't got teary like that since watching Clannad: AS. It was so good though! Totally worth the loss in man-points! Can't wait to get around to playing through the rest :)

My curiosity's been piqued by this game, so I thought I'd have a go with One Story first - and it was definitely an enjoyable readthrough! Nonami, Haruka and Sora were all believable and likable characters - it took me a bit of time to warm to Sora, but that usually tends to be the case with tsundere :P

I accidentally spoiled myself on VNDB about Riku's
infidelity
. Usually I'm not a big fan of that kind of storyline,
and I was worried that the plot was going to get all School Days on me (when Sora stole the ticket, did Haruka ask her to do it ... ? Just the way she said "You did well, Sora" ...)
, but it was handled very tastefully.

The humour is very Azumanga Daioh-ish, especially at the
sports festival
. I don't think I'm going to be able to read Nonami's lines now without hearing Tomo Takino.

And, finally, I love the addition of the Director's Notes. You've really put your heart into this game, and it shows.

I do want to ask one thing, though:
Just after the bra-returning love-letter scene: when you eat casserole with Nonami after she interrupts you with Haruka, are there two scenes when there's meant to be one? Nonami says she's going back to class, only she turns up immediately in the same place again after you supposedly eat lunch with Haruka, only you've just eaten casserole with Nonami ... and she gives you the same advice over again. ^^;;

Apologies if I read it wrongly or got confused by something.


I'm really looking forward to giving the original game a shot!


P.S. I did laugh a little when I recognised some of Kevin McLeod's music. Got to love that guy.

Ah poop, that's a glitch in OneStory. Thanks for pointing it out.

I hope everyone plays the full version if you're old enough. That's the best way to enjoy Homeward.
