The Story

Home Zomewhere Else (HZE) is a linear story, where you play as Chad, a down on his luck Doberman trying to live day by day while haunted by a past he can’t seem to escape. His friends have left him, no family remains, and anything he had left in his hometown of Marimabo has been lost... As Chad you spend your time solving an increasing number of problems and trying to put back the pieces of your past. Chad is tormented by a series of unfortunate events that occurred a decade ago, when a bolt of lightning seemingly changed his fate forever.
Supernatural creatures roam the woods, magical situations occur without reason, all while his past and future lay before him. All Chad wants is a new place to call home...

Whew. This is very well written. Emotional whiplash like only one other VN has ever given me. Look forward to experiencing more down the road.

Spoilers below

I hope Jen will take her recording to a different city to ask for government involvement. Having dirt against someone so high up it's painfully obvious he's bought the local police, fight fire with fire. Blackmail him with the recording into releasing all of his 'hostages'.

Whatever happens, ill be waiting for that update email.


Hope things are looking up for you! <3


Eyy, thanks for the nice comments!!!

It's been slowly getting better, some bad stuff here and there but hopefully I'm on my way to getting better ❤️‍🩹

I'm still in the US and soon to be on Montreal, Canadá!

If you want to follow what I've been up to you can follow me on Instagram

Hope to see you all soon! 🫂


Hope things settle down fam.

Is there any update on the hiatus? I'm hoping things are going okay...

Hey! Thank you so much for your concern! We'll be back soon, I promise ❤️‍🩹

I just made a life update post,  please go check it out!

best regards!




What a surprise! I can feel something like enthusiasm in this work, and some of the content also resonates with the experience! The explanation of magic is also very convincing! I love these!(

Sorry English is not my first language, hope there is nothing strange



The romance is a slow burn. Maybe no romance will occur


Hello! So as a means to tell people that might read this comment and because just a few people have mentioned it, I think i've talked about and posted about at the same time, that HZE is going to be at least 20 chapters, and that where we currently are, Chapter 3 is merely the beggining of the story we want to tell. While the story contains, and will contain more romance in the future, this is not the main focus of the story. So we kindly ask for your patience on that matter, and hope you enjoy the ride of the story WE want to tell!

Thank you for reading Home Zomewhere Else!


On top of having a great concept, lovable and well written characters, and wonderfully emotive sprites, xou create a very artistic way to describe "Zoma" :p

As a practitioner, I'm always curious how other writers explain the concept of magick in their universe, and xou've not left me wanting ^^_ it's so logical, in the most magickally accurate of ways n_n

I absolutely love the direction of the story. Keept up all of the amazing work! ^__^/


I'm really glad to hear! Trying to explain our "magic system" in a way that didn't felt overwhelming or just a dump of information was something that we tried really hard to achieve, so I hope that it came across the best way possible. And thanks for your kind words! I hope you continue reading HZE!


Xou guys nailed it, looking forward to what happens next~ ^^_

Ooh the latest update is making my hope for the forbidden moth thruple. (Also known as Mothoc's harem)

We do pray for more Mothoc content, If you'd like to see more, you can check out our patreon 😏😏😏


I've read up through everything in 0.12.2 and I am LOVING this story! Very excited to see what happens next :D


i want to set Chad's dad on fire


I know right u_u


How long has it been


months, but we're working really hard to hopefully get the update ready for this month! But I assure you its a long update!


i miss tot


I hope you succeed in your project :)


I love Mothoc

Thought this little reference was cute, whether is was intentional or not :]

I'm... What the actual fuck is hapenning right now ? 

I mean, I loved the story, so many questions, a very mysterious story, a boyfriend that don't tell everything... A child, a mother, an abusive father. But monsters and magic powers AND MOTHOC??? Come on. This is too perfect :D

Even if i admit that i did not really understood the transition between "normal" and "paranormal shit", i loved it (I knew that there was going to be a paranormal side of the story, since the hand projection, it seemed obvious, but not that way, you understand ? I literally got terrified by the sound of the monsters, sended shivers down my spine :D).

 The characters arer VERY endearing, and i spent a really good time getting to know them. Especially Jenny, she's so funny i love her. Well, that aside, the story is catching. I wanna see the end but... I feel as confused as the protagonist. And that's a good thing, since i'm supposed to see the world through the protagonist's eyes, but this is one of the only -if not the only one- VN in which i couldn't anticipate the events, i can't see the beggining of what the end will look like, and that's rare. It's a compliment ! 

I also really liked the effort put in the music and the background, i also loved the "drawed scene" ? I don't know the exact term, but you see what i mean. 

Thank you, to all the team, for making such a great job at emerging people into your world. You did it very well, and i'll look forward the updates ! 

Thanks for reading :) 

Losh ~ 

I haven't finished reading the public build yet (so far, probably a rising star in FVN's), but I feel compelled to tell you that Wizards of the Coast is writing up a new Open Game License that MAY impact your revenue. 

thank you, I'm glad you're enjoying it! and thanks for the heads up, we'll look into it!


I did not expect things to go down like that...


Love the game but could you guys add a "most recent update" option for the chapter select? For convenience.


love the new cgs

Hey! It does work, but we are currently trying to fix this error page you've just sent, you can also just press "ignore" right there, and it should work just fine, but its not the idea that this error pops up so we'll fix it asap! please report these patreon build errors in our discord server on the patreon section, or in our patreon comments!

I love how Chad's facial hair grows a bit as time passes, such a fun little detail!
