ABSENCE: Verdict of Silence is a traditional RPG at it's core. It combines aspects of simulation games, such as Relationship Building, Farming and Management, with the combat and exploration of a traditional Role Playing Game.  



- Gathering - 

There are a large number of gathering options available to the player including: Fishing, Exploration, Trade and Farming.

- Battling - 

The world of Asalthana has no shortage of enemies to do battle with. The more you use certain skills the more powerful they become. This combined with experience levels and a custom talent tree system, allows for a huge number of potential play styles. 

- Discovery - 

Through utilising a classically styled quest system, in combination with  hidden dynamic objectives, the player will have the opportunity to find their own unique story path.  If you chose to explore the world,  you may stumble upon a trove of hidden secrets, you never know what you may find.


- Relationships -

Players can choose to present as either female, or male, and pursue a relationship with any character they choose. 

Companions in your party have their own agendas, thoughts and beliefs.  

Form rivalries, friendships or even romance as you write your own story through the decisions you make.

Buy gifts, complete unique story driven side quests, or simply engage in regular conversation to increase or decrease the bond you share.

The allies and enemies you choose may greatly effect your personal experience and story.


- Building -

As a fledgling adventurer, you are provided with little more than a basic camp. Through the decisions you make, you may be able to convert your humble camp into a Keep or perhaps, even a grand Castle. Unlock new vendors, NPCs, crafting points and more! You can choose to leave your camp as you find it, or invest time into converting it in to a bustling hub of activity.  


- Farming -

The world of Asalthana provides many opportunities for eager Farmers. If you choose to invest your time in building and maintaining a farm, the rewards that you receive may be extremely valuable.  Players can use their farm to grow crops, which can be used either directly or as a component for more complicated crafting recipes.


- Crafting -

Players have a wide variety of crafting disciplines available to them right from the beginning of the game. Some crafting systems include: Item Augmentation, Gear Upgrading, Cooking, Furniture Craft, Building, Blacksmithing and more! The game includes an extensive, in-depth item system that allows for complex interactions in your creations.

 Craft new items, upgrade or combine them to give them powerful effects.


- Difficulty -

The world scales with you as you level, ensuring there is always an even balance of challenge and fun. However, the Dynamic Difficulty Scaling also provides a sense of progression by ensuring that creatures like Giant Rats will always be as strong (or as weak) as you'd expect them.

The decisions you make have consequences that shape your relationships, your story, and even the very world of Asalthana!





The Land of Asalthana


Ruled by a pantheon of Gods, the Land of Asalthana is no stranger to war and conflict.  The power of the living Gods rings through every being in the lands. It echos the divinity of the ancients, like the a cacophonous chorus to an endless song. The inhabitants of Asalthana called this power the -

"Song of the Gods".

These Songs allow even the weakest being, the potential to bring fourth great powers. Such as chaos, healing and much more. Some inhabitants of Asalthana felt these powers needed to be controlled. They created a heinous rite called -

"The Verdict of Silence".

The Verdict of Silence severs a living being's spirit from the Chorus, in most cases killing them instantly and condemning them to eternity; trapped as a lost soul.

Kings would rise and fall after the introduction of "The Verdict of Silence". Yet none would be able to hold their reign for long. The only exception was one particularly gifted family whom fate conspired to lead the world. 

They reigned for more than three hundred years, until one fateful day, where our current story begins...
