Homescapes Guide: Get To Know Austin the Butler


If you are into match-3 games, you should at least try playing Homescapes. It’s a free-to-play game that you can enjoy on desktop and mobile. The game follows the story of Austin, a butler who returned to his childhood home after a very long time.

On his way home, Austin showed up a little early at the airport and his parents, William and Olivia, were not yet there. He decided to go straight to their family home by himself to his parents’ surprise. However, he was much more surprised to know that his parents are planning to sell the property. This is because the house is now in poor condition, and they felt that they will spend so much more on renovation.

Homescapes’ Austin tries to convince them not to sell the property, so he bought a rug as a present and a friend – YOU! He volunteered to renovate the mansion and restore it to its former glory with your help. You and Austin will work hand in hand to do a complete makeover of his ancestral house. That is the opening story of Homescapes, and players of the game already know that well. However, if you want to know more about Austin, just read on below!


Butler Turned Interior Designer

While growing up, Austin had a pet turtle, but his parents decided to put the animal in a zoo. Unlike in Gardenscapes where Austin had a lot of friends and neighbors, Austin only has a few in Homescapes. One of them is Katherine, and she is a very close friend. Austin now has a pet Bird with him. It is delivered to his home shortly after arrival.

Austin went to a Butler Academy, where he learned to be a butler – just like his father. For some time, he went working for a certain household until he decided to visit his parents back home. Upon returning home, Austin unleashed his skills in interior designing.

He finds that the old house really needs a lot of work and refurbishing. He bought a brand new chair, sofa, installed new shelves, and laid out new carpets. Austin’s ultimate goal is to spruce up his old home and convince his parents to not sell the property. This can all be done with your help, of course!
