Reviews“Enola is not an easy game. It’s challenging, and the content is extremely dark, with only a hint of light within it. That light was well worth my time with it, and the personal, raw story of the two women woven into the narrative was something I couldn’t turn away from.”
“Enola brings a wildly imaginative psychological horror game to players. Although its held back by technical and narrative limitations, the core game is one horror fans should look into.”
“There are definitely some VERY dark topics that are brought up through the game, so you better be secure in dealing with uncomfortable situations or topics that befall a girl as she is growing up.”
