Absentia - Episode 1

Share Collapse

Author Comments

This is the first episode in our new series, Absentia, entitled "Episode 1: Notes". The puzzles are simple: click on hidden note fragments; click to move through scenes; and drag the collected note fragments into place. It's a simple, linear format, that allows us to focus on story-telling. The atmosphere is deliberately heavy and haunting, with professional narration. Feedback welcomed.

it doesn't work I only see the loading bar going crazy but noting more I tried a few time to refresh the page but every time the same so I can't jugs if it is a good ore bad game.so for now I gave 0 stars but as soon as I am able to play the game I will jugs the game properly and will give real stars

nice setup

i liked the atmosphere u got going on here,
dind't really enjoy the puzzled, i think u could make em a bit harder without us players losing focus on the story
since the puzzles don't seem like the core of the game, i won't rate it based on them
however, as plot goes, episode 1 seems more like....a teaser than the first episode of the story
you got a nice stup going on, but can't really tell if the story will be cool
oh, nice voice acting btw
hope to see the real story developing soon


You have created a fantastic, atmospheric experience with incredible use of simple puzzles. You are awesome. It was really cool to play something a bit different too :)


This was interesting, I'm not sure where the story is going, and if you intend on having it just be a series of games where you just find notes of paper, but the girl narrating has a very beautiful voice, great job on that. I hope it lengthens and has more content.

Gotta give some love to my fellow Northwesterners! Love that gas park in Seattle, it's gorgeous. Seattle has such great scenery.

Short but Good

The plot is very thrilling, the music is awesome and I loved the girlĀ“s voice.... I hope the sequel comes soon
