Absention was recently announced by Dream Wave Games as a new survival horror title where players will have to re-live the same night over and over again as you try to find out how to escape the repeating path of terror.
If you’re only just now hearing about the game, here’s the official synopsis of the game from the developer’s website:
You have inherited a lake house from your estranged father who disappeared under suspicious circumstances. After falling asleep after a long day traveling to the isolated house, you wake to the chilling chime of a grandfather clock. Suddenly the power goes out and in the blackness you see glowing eyes of something running at you. You wake up to the haunting chime of the grandfather clock…
In Absention you explore the mysterious lake house that changes it’s layout every time you play. You memorize key events and learn from your mistakes to overcome the terrifying foe that hunts you. You take that reluctant sprint, risking it all in the hopes that this time you live to see a new day. You uncover the mysteries of your past and escape this eternal night or terror.
We’re currently in the process of setting up a developer interview to learn more about the game and should have more details to share with you soon. In the meantime, you can check out a bunch of new screenshots from the game’s official website. The game is being developed using Unreal Engine 4 so it’s no surprise the game looks fantastic.
