A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

In Heart of Enya you play as Willow Wisp, a campfire spirit who guides a group of amateur adventurers in harnessing the warm magic of self love to fend off the Frost that surrounds them.

Cycle between helping them connect with each other at night and advising them in battle with icy foes during the day.

Fighting can be difficult, so feel free to retreat back to the campfire and make some soup to warm your heart again.
