  • Summary: ENKI is a repeatable horror experience about escape. With multiple endings and an extensive randomization system that promises that every playthrough will always be different from the previous one, whether you as a player succeeded in escaping or not.

    First encounter with Enki is quite thrilling, but the game ends after half an hour. You can start over with some elements (like item placement) randomly generated, but this randomness is just not random enough. [10/2015, p.67]

    Enki is presented as a “repeatable horror experience” but fails both the repeatable and the horror parts. The publicized randomization system affects just the displacements of key objects, and the whole experience is over in about 50 minutes, far less than the price point of 10 Euros my suggest.

    Starting from some good ideas, Enki fails to deliver the advertised repeatable experience. There's also some creepy atmosphere around, but it goes away too soon.

    ENKI is a game that tries to deliver a replayable horror game, but does not really succeed in doing that. The game is far too short for its price, and the randomisation makes the game annoying more than replayable. Because of that, ENKI fails to convince.

    ENKI appears as an amateur project, something that a group of friends can develop during weekends. Unfortunately it’s a commercial product, and it must be treated as such. It’s plagued by lots of design and technical issues, and it’s simply not fun.

    Pixel-hunting for small, barely noticeable items in dark rooms is a crappy idea for a horror game by itself, but timer just adds insult to injury. And don’t bother suffering through this for the story, because there is pretty much none of it.

    It's a rushed game, poor in contents, and unable to stand on its own ideas.
