Absinthia is a turn-based RPG featuring the story of scorned Knight Freya, her young apprentice Sera, and their individual struggles with loss, betrayal and acceptance as they fight to protect their home.


When a mysterious enemy threatens the peaceful town of Katti, a traveling knight named Freya steps in to save the day.

Young warrior Sera, alongside her friends Jake and Thomas, begin training under Freya's guidance to protect Katti Town and the Ambrose Isles. But when another assault ends in a tragic loss, Sera must grapple with the true nature of their enemy--as well as that of the knight protecting them.


  • Traditional turn-based jRPG battle system featuring a regenerating MP system for faster-paced combat, powerful team-based attacks and no random encounters
  • Difficulty options for those who seek challenge--or only want to focus on the story
  • Just the right length: Average playtime should clock between 8-12 hours, perfect for folks who don`t have time to sit through 40 hours of filler
  • Colorful Gameboy-style pixel art, busts and art illustrations
  • Original soundtrack: Composed by Jazz Stewart, Absinthia`s soundtrack is a modern take on some of the greatest tunes from the SNES era of jRPGs

will you port this or any other of your games to android as well?

Hey there! Absinthia and Knight Bewitched: Enhanced Edition are on Google Play Store's Open Testing, and all of my other games are available on the Google Play Store as well.

Here's a link to Absinthia on Google Play. I think I've ironed out all the major bugs, so if all goes well I'll officially release it next week.

thank you very much for the answer.

do you think you could upload the apk also here on itchio? i don't have a google account and i would really love to play your games.


guess it's a no?

My apologies, I just got an APK file set up for Absinthia. That said, I'm not too familiar with distributing Android installers outside of the Google Play Store, so you might have to mess with your phone's settings for it to let you install it.



i think it's just a matter of uploading the apk file on itchio so people can download it, but whatever, i guess i might just end up not playing the others. 🥲

take care.


It is not "just a matter of uploading the APK file". It is also the matter of the vast majority of Android devices blocking apps that aren't downloaded directly from the Play Store, and the user having to go into their settings to allow installing apps from unknown sources, which is a safety measure Android phones have in place to prevent installing harmful apps. I'm aware my apps aren't harmful, but also that some users might not appreciate having to open their phone up to potential harm to install my app from the Internet when they can just purchase it from the Google Play Store, hence why I don't normally upload APKs.

"whatever, i guess i might just end up not playing the others. " Ok. Take care 😁

the entitlement is insane
