Absent is a story which follows the character of young-adult and college student, Murray Schull. He and his two best friends, Eve and Steve, attend a college in which students are disappearing daily. It's up to them to find out how this is happening, why this is happening, protect their other friends, and to put a stop to it once and for all. These series of events began when Crystal, a three month girlfriend of Murray's friend, Steve, disappeared on her way home from college via mysterious means. Over the course of the investigation, however, Murray realises that what stole Steve's girlfriend was not anything of this earth. Murray is haunted by visions, confronted with puzzles, with friends turning against each other, and all for one reason. The Reaper. In development for three years, Absent is a freeware adventure game, and the first to be released from fentonfilmgames.

Still, this could only mean we're one step closer to that Day of the Tentacle remaster, right @TimOfLegend? ;)

@HobbyGameDev I've found that if you know what you're doing and skip the dialogue, you can play "Absent" in roundabout 30-60 mins. :p
