Full review

Absinthia is a captivating turn-based RPG that tells the story of Knight Freya and her apprentice Sera as they face challenges of loss, betrayal, and acceptance in their quest to protect their home. The game takes place in the peaceful town of Katti, which is threatened by a mysterious enemy.

As players embark on this adventure, they are introduced to a traditional turn-based jRPG battle system that offers an exciting gameplay experience. One notable feature is the regenerating MP system that adds a faster-paced combat element to battles. Additionally, powerful team-based attacks can be utilized to overcome adversaries.

For those seeking varying levels of difficulty or who wish to focus solely on the story, Absinthia provides customizable difficulty options. This allows players to tailor their gaming experience based on personal preferences.

The visual presentation of Absinthia features colorful handheld-style pixel art and illustrations that bring vibrancy and charm to the game's world. Furthermore, an original soundtrack composed by Jazz Stewart enhances immersion by capturing the essence of classic SNES era jRPGs from yesteryears with a modern twist.

In conclusion, Absinthia presents an engaging narrative filled with captivating characters set against visually stunning pixel art accompanied by an exceptional soundtrack. It is truly an unforgettable journey worth embarking upon for fans of turn-based RPGs.
