Yes, dear readers, I’m referring to Enclosure 3D, a remarkable 3D remaster of the beloved 2004 adventure game Enclosure, developed by Femo Duo Entertainment. This game is now available for Windows, macOS, and Linux, and can be downloaded here.
In this game, you will follow Mike Goodman, a petty crook who is compelled to accept a mysterious mission to investigate strange activities at an arctic base. As is customary in such games, you will navigate the hero using arrow keys and interact with elements of the game by typing commands like “look” or “open the door” (in English, of course). Progress in the story is achieved by interacting with characters.
The key to success in this game is attentiveness. You will need to explore each area of the station, carefully listen to what the characters have to say, observe everything that appears interesting, and most importantly, draw a map to navigate your way. I strongly encourage you to give it a try if you are a fan of adventure games and feel a bit nostalgic.
The 3D voxel engine developed specifically for this game is also available on GitHub. The best part is that you can switch between the original and remastered graphics simply by pressing F2 during gameplay when the graphics were 2D.
As for system requirements, you will need a computer dating back to at least 2010 or newer, running Windows 7 SP1 or higher, Linux, or macOS 10.9 or higher. You will also need at least 128 MB of free memory and a graphics card compatible with OpenGL 3.3, with 64 MB of free VRAM. Rest assured, it should work just fine.
You’ll be pleased to know that Enclosure 3D also features an advanced save mode, allowing you to save up to 15 different locations. I recommend saving often as it enables you to choose an alternative path if necessary.
Lastly, I want to highlight the incredible community surrounding this game. If you find yourself stuck or in need of assistance, feel free to join their Discord. Other players will be more than happy to point you in the right direction. And if you fall in love with Enclosure 3D, why not try another game from Femo Duo Entertainment, such as Hank’s Quest: Victim of Society? You can find more information here.
Don’t hesitate to download and embark on this exciting journey into the world of adventure games!
