Current available version: alpha 0.11 (last updated on December 2013)

Enola is a horror/adventure game about love, hate, and death. You play as a young girl on a mysterious place, looking for her missing girlfriend. However, as you explore this world, you find there is something dark and evil lurking in the shadows. You’ll have to be quick and cunning to survive. Do you have what it takes to save your loved one before it's too late?

As you uncover the secrets, you learn the game is driven by its story and characters, and that survival is only one of its elements. Enola is not the kind of game that 'frights' you; we want it to emotionally hurt you and stick with you. 

This game is currently in alpha-funding stage.

You can alpha-fund Enola by buying it right now for $9.99 (full price will be $14.99). You get instant access to current and future alpha builds, so you see how the game takes shape and help us with your input. Of course, you'll also get a DRM-Free digital copy of the game when it's finished.

Enola is available here on Desura!

It's also available on:

Key features:

  1. Story-driven - Enola may be a horror game, but from gameplay elements to level design, Enola pushes the boundaries of the genre with a captivating and intriguing love story
  2. Horror Without Monsters - Enola pushes the emotional boundaries of the player, putting them in an isolated, defenseless state of mind. 
  3. Unconstrained Mechanics - The mix of first person mechanics and old-school adventure games allows players to keep track of clues and figure out puzzles without the constraints of traditional point-and-click interfaces. 
  4. Frightenly Calculated Puzzles - Death traps meant to put players' nerves to the test. Some puzzles are the usual "fail and try again" ones, but in other cases, failing can mean death.
  5. Superb Voice Acting and Musical Score. - Enola now offers a spine chilling soundtrack and immersive voice acting and sound effects. Superb voice acting and musical score.

Enola alpha 0.9 - September 2013

FAQ:

  1. Get a *dx*.dll device error? Install DX9. You can use the included redist in Enola\Binaries\Redist\UE3Redist.exe
  2. Get a xinput*.dll error? Install DirectX 9 (even if your system includes DirectX 10 or 11). You can use the included redist in Enola\Binaries\Redist\UE3Redist.exe
  3. Get a msvcr100.dll error? Install Visual C++ 2008 redist (x86 version, even if you have a x64 system). You can use the included redist in Enola\Binaries\Redist\vcredist_x86 .exe
  4. Will my computer run Enola? We're trying to make a game that requires modest hardware to run, so anyone who can run older Unreal Engine based games can run Enola. If unsure, you can download the demo and see if it runs.
  5. How much game can we expect when it's finished (in gameplay hours)? We can't really say. Some people may figure out puzzles really quickly while others take more time. We do want to make sure there is enough game, and replay value, in Enola so we constantly rethink and redesign things in the game.
  6. Will you make a Mac version? Since we use UDK we can make a Mac version, but we don't have any Mac computer to test the actual build so we make sure it actually runs before making it available to you.

Long time no talk!

Well, I’ve been keeping myself busy these past weeks. I have designed the remaining levels and I have prototypes of those levels in UDK. Nothing fancy really, because they are looking like this:

capture

The image above shows 3 parts of the 7th level in Enola (there will be 8 levels in total). This level has been very difficult to design, because I wanted it to be large, difficult, and maze-ish. My main inspiration was the Water Temple in Zelda, even if this level has no water, and the gameplay in Enola is very different.

However, this level has a big silo-like structure and you will have to move across different levels while playing.

As I said this is the 7th level. There will be 8 levels in Enola: So far you’ve (probably) seen the intro level, the island, cabin, church and strip club. The other 3 levels will be a surprise Smile The game will also feature 5 different levels. Writing the endings has been very, VERY, difficult.

Personally I hate it when endings are underwhelming (I’m looking at you, Half Life 1 and 2). However, you have to understand It’s very hard to come up with a good ending. Basically what I’m trying to do is come up with endings that will actually make sense, because I am not fan of “weird endings that are open to interpretation” in horror games (or in any kind of game, unless it actually earns it).

Enola doesn’t, HA! Well, what I mean is that the game is not cryptic in any way so a “weird figure-out-by-yourself ending” doesn’t make sense.

Anyway, there’s something else I need to report, but not yet Smile

I played some of this for my Halloween month on youtube, and I'm certainly glad I did! The atmosphere was nice and subtle, while still being spooky in some areas. I may have also fallen through the world at some point while messing around. It was fun. ^_^

You can find part 1 here: Youtu.be

Hello and thanks for playing!
As to answer your question about the voices. At the end, all notes (or most of them) will have voices. Right now, not all of them have voices because we haven't recorded those yet. We are slowly getting all of them and including them in the game. Usually we add them as they become available.

Having some issues since the update..cannot seem to load either of my save points. :( Anyone else having problems? I can get into the save spots when clicking "continue" but then I cannot load them and the "back" button won't allow me to get back to menu. I have to CTRIL+ALT+DEL and close game out of task manager. I've tried this a few times...You can PM if it easier...UGH..Love this game, I'm a die hard Enola fan..always seem to have issues after updates tho! Let me know when you get a second, I still haven't finished game since last update but am loving the changes...eager to play again-Thanks!

I just tried it myself, putting old saves inside the game folder, and I get the same error you get (saves not loading and the "back" button not working).
The thing is that for some reason the one I have installed on my hard drive works fine, but the one I uploaded to desura doesn't? O_o I am thinking maybe I screwed up versions somehow...

Hi and thanks for doing the LP :D
As for your question, yes, you can save. If you hear a weird music box, a save point is nearby. It looks like a box with a photograph of a blond girl lying on a bed.
