Absence is a 3rd-Person Fantasy Adventure game set in a Victorian industrial town. Using the Half-life 2 engine, the game centers around a young girl, Lily, who wakes to find that she has lost her memory. The player must guide Lily around the city, meeting the various citizens of the city and solving puzzles to progress through the game. The game is being developed by a group of students at the University of Salford, England as part of their final year of their BSc degree in Computer & Video Games and is due for completion in May 2006.

RSS Character concepts complete

Our lead artist Sarah has just completed a series of concept art for the characters in Absence. They're looking great, and we're very pleased with her work. They really help set the visual style for the game, and this is also the first time that we've shown off the player character Lily,

cheers for all of the comments.

we are trying something that is quite different to other mods out there, so expect a few surprises as we develop the mod!

Very nice. I love the artwork. It's style kinda reminds me of American McGee's Alice.
