About Retreat to Enen

It is the year 3600 CE, humanity is unrecognizable after centuries of war, socio-economic strife, and the impending climate catastrophe. Turning back from the brink, humans chose a different path of healing, peace, and reverence for the ecosystem they are a part of. As the Earth heals, every human who reaches adulthood is now tasked with learning how to become one with Nature, on the island of Enen.

Return to Enen focuses on this rite of passage. Arrive at the legendary island to learn how to live in peaceful harmony with nature by surviving on your own, discovering the island’s secrets, and mastering the art of meditation.

Mindful Survival

A relaxing and engaging survival game, meditation is essential to progress in Return to Enen. Map out the island, forage for food, hunt game, and collect supplies to build a peaceful home to spend many nights in. Seek out ancient ruins and find meditation points to learn the secrets of humanity in the 37th century.

Raw Beauty of Nature

Roam an island with three vast, distinct biomes – Dive deep and explore breathtaking underwater environments off tropical beaches.
