Had a better time looking at the art on the steam hub then playing the game
Unfortunately, pretty pictures aren’t enough to save it. There’s a premise with a lot of potential in Enigma, but it’s squandered on cliche characters, uneven pacing, and rough localisation.
ENIGMA: is a surprising visual novel in how well it brings together humor, mystery and drama.
Never a good thing, but these games live and die by their storyline hooks. What started as really intriguing for me ended up growing dull in the long run. As far as a game goes for the genre, it’s not horrible or broken, and I’m sure some folks will really enjoy the story being told here, but for me it’s too little all around.
The one drawback is the 800 x 600 resolution.
ENIGMA: may provide a unique premise for a mystery story, but don’t expect stellar writing. Hold off on this visual novel until it goes on sale.
