Enola is a mystery horror game for the PC. My best guess for a baby factor, Myst meets Amnesia. Which is an awesome combo. In Enola, like in many games you awaken not knowing who and where you are. You search the island you wake up on for clues, solve puzzles, while trying to find out who you are and how to escape. You can buy the game for $2.50 down from the usual 10 dollars for a limited time from GamersGate. The game is not yet finished, it is in Alpha. However purchasing the game in alpha allows you to play it now in its unfinished state, and you get access to all future updates. Screens, info, and video past the break.
