Who Wants Some Wing?

Project Absentia is a retro FPS inspired by 2000s-2010s flash animations and sprite comics, with vertical, aerial, elemental combat as the main focus.

You play as Abby, an angel who has been captured by the Orkan Corporation, along with her girlfriend Aurora, and her best friend Orion. You break free of your captors, but your friends are still captive. Armed with only a Tommy Gun, your gliding abilities and your wits, you must jump and glide and move around to get the high ground against your enemies. They don't know who they're messing with, and no one messes with Abby.

  • Huge levels focused on emulating physical locations - lived-in mines, castles, apartments, entertainment districts, derilect ships and more.
  • A huge armory - tons of weapons lying around. Use the Hailer to freeze your enemies. Missile Launchers blow your enemies apart. Drain health with the man-eating plant known as Blitzcraig. Use the trusty double-barreled shotgun to shred your foes. Oh, and make 'em taste the rainbow with the Rainbowitzer. Just to name a few!
  • Interactive elements - vending machines, breakable glass, mini-golf, water coolers, mirrors, just to name a few! Feel free to play with the environment.
  • Fully voice acted cast - with a broad cast of characters
  • Accessibility options - colorblind options, subtitles, and adjustable controls and FOV.

Notice: Project Absentia contains wanton and gratuitous violence, strong language, and degeneracy.

Warning: Does NOT run on Delta Touch.

Absentia ipk3 demo seen as shareware on Delta Touch apk so doesn't work as an iwad

It isn't intended to run on delta touch.

Ok. Just I have been doing a standalone doom engine project on doomworld.com for Delta Touch apk and other Waffle Iron Studios games work like sharddx ipk3 & ddrama ipk3. Maybe a Delta Touch version could be made at somepoint in the future? Thanks for the reply.

We are working on a build that will have some compatibility with Delta Touch. I don't know how much that will last, as GZDoom is going a different direction design wise than we wish to go.

I was poking around in the demo and noticed you licensed code under BSD. I’m working my own game and that’s a huge help, thank you.
