What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Ethereal Enigma will release episodically during development which is where Early Access comes in. It allows us to garner your feedback, suggestions and criticism in order to make sure Ethereal Engima is the best that it can be as we continue to develop. All Early Access players will receive new chapters for free via updates! Once all the chapters are complete, we will transition from Early Access to official release.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The approximate length of Early Access will grow as new chapters are added to Ethereal Enigma. Chapters are around 2-3 hours of play depending on readers speed on a single play through. Play time may increase with discovering all the different paths and possibilities! As for goals, we plan to release a new episode every 3-4 months with full release expected for Summer 2020.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version will be all the chapters linked together which tells the full story of Ethereal Enigma!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current version of Early Access includes Chapter 1 & Chapter 2. New chapters will be added during the development process and provided as free updates to all Early Access players.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Price will remain the same between Early Access and full release; there are no DLCs or micro-transations for Ethereal Enigma.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Our development process is very transparent and we love to incorporate player ideas and feedback. Early Access provides an excellent line of communication between us and our players to ensure the official release is the best that it can be! You can feel free to reach us on the Steam forums, contact us by email at team@pixelfade.com or come hang out on our Discord (discord.gg/pf).”

About This Game


While returning home from his first day of high school, our Protagonist encounters a strange woman who encourages him to make a wish at the shrine. Although skeptical, he unwittingly summons Erilynn, a beautiful yet bold princess from another world! With no idea how she came here or how to send her back, the two must put aside their differences and work together to unravel the mystery.

Now, high school isn't the only thing on our protagonist's mind. He must keep Erilynn's identity a secret while searching for the elusive and mystifying old woman who started it all!
