The butler Austin is desperate. Because when he visits his parents in his old family mansion, he must learn that they have no money for the renovation. Therefore, it seems that the once beautiful country estate will have to be sold. This is, of course, unthinkable, and you'll do everything possible in the role of Austin to prevent a sale. To do this, of course, you'll have to lend a hand yourself and restore one room after another.
If you now think that Homescapes is a game that focuses on these renovations, you are mistaken. This is only the story, which has little to do with the actual gameplay. Homescapes is a puzzle and riddle game with the proven "connect three of a kind" principle. And since there is a wide range of such games, the lovingly designed background story is an essential feature to stand out from the competition.
Homescapes also succeeds in this brilliantly. Austin the butler is a character that also appears in the partner game "Gardenscapes" (here you don't renovate a house, but spruce up the garden). But not only Austin is a lovingly designed character. Your parents also have their own personalities and provide numerous laughs in the cutscenes. There are also various other people who live in the neighborhood and interact with Austin.
