Enthusiasm in an Empty World

Enthusiasm in an Empty World is an 2D puzzle platformer where you control an abandoned space rover named Enthusiasm who has been awakened into a strange new world by a mysterious source of solar power. Help Enthusiasm discover what happened and navigate light-themed puzzles while trying to keep Enthusiasm’s solar battery alive!
