    The world is afflicted with a mysterious disease known as "The Enigma."
    Chester, infected with this disease, finds himself washed onto a lonely island, Carlyle.

    As he is being given a tour of the island by the girl who nursed him back to health, Chester finds himself feeling that something is off.
    There are no doctors from the mainland. Not only is there no information of the outside world, but the inhabitants seem entirely oblivious of the worldwide epidemic.
    ---It's as if this place has been completely removed from the rest of the world.

    After a while, Chester finds a conspicuous white forest in the middle of a green expanse.

    "That forest devours people. That's what I believe."

    The forest's name is Enigma.
    The same as the disease consuming his body.

    ENIGMA: is a surprising visual novel in how well it brings together humor, mystery and drama. It takes skillful writing to make this work as well as it does here.

    If you are an avid reader of Visual Novels, I would certainly suggest picking up Enigma:. While it doesn’t have the most outstanding storyline, the execution of it is very well done. Along with multiple endings, a beautiful soundtrack and a memorable cast of characters, I fully believe this game will make a great addition to your virtual library.

    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.

    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.

    There’s a premise with a lot of potential in enigma, but it’s squandered on cliche characters, uneven pacing, and rough localisation.

    The art was fairly pleasant and vividly detailed. I enjoyed looking at the scenery and characters as they were drawn well. But with the horribly painful interactions and long drawn out scenes of nothing that I had to force myself to get through, the art just didn’t make up for it.
