Sapphic RPG 'Absinthia' looking to hit Switch via Kickstarter
$20k to bring this one to Switch
Absinthia is a turn-based RPG that explores themes of love, loss, betrayal and acceptance as four close friends fight to protect their home. The team behind the game is currently looking to secure funding via Kickstarter, and their goal sits at $20k. If that goal is hit, a Switch release is a lock.
Absinthia’s Ambrose Isles are home to many things: A pirate hideout, a treacherous swamp, an abandoned desert kingdom… But for those who prefer a danger-free life, Katti Town is the place to be. One night, Katti Town found itself besieged by a horde of shadowy minions and their leader, Lilith. But hope was not lost–before Lilith could claim victory, a traveling knight named Freya appeared and drove back Lilith`s forces with ease.
Now known as the Hero of Katti Town, Freya took three villagers under her wing: Sera, a warrior-in-training; Thomas, an apprentice mage; and his partner, the mischievous thief Jake. Together, they train to protect Katti Town and the Ambrose Isles. But one question remains on everyone’s minds: Why is Lilith attacking the isles to begin with… And who is Freya?
