Reviews

“It doesn't take a gumshoe to tell that Lacuna is a stellar, Noir-inspired adventure, that is absolutely worth investigating further.”
8.5/10 – PC Invasion

“Lacuna isn’t the first 2D noir detective game I’ve played, or even the second, but it’s undeniably the best one I’ve come across.”
8/10 – Killapenguin

“An intricately crafted, perfectly paced and engrossing experience that places the story front and centre.”
9/10 – Indiegamewebsite

About This Game


The Save the World Edition includes Lacuna and the game’s atmospheric soundtrack that lets you dive deep into the sci-fi noir world of Lacuna. In addition, Assemble Entertainment donates 10% of the revenues of this edition to Go Give One; a WHO initiative that provides COVID-19 vaccines amongst others for everyone, everywhere – prioritizing those who need them the most in countries that cannot afford them. On top of this, it’s the best option for all those who would like to support the work of the developer of Lacuna even more and do something good at the same time.



Another cigarette tumbles into the abyss. The sun is slowly coming up, glistening in the sea of buildings below.

I look up at the stars one last time before they disappear. They don't provide any guidance. They don't give a f*ck.

I have to make this decision on my own, and very soon. Problem is, I don't know how. I've never been able to figure out why I do what I do. Not really.

No more time to think. I have to go.


Here's the deal


You are Neil Conrad, CDI agent. Awoken by the news of a murder, you rush into a case that will soon turn your life and the whole solar system upside down. Ask questions, collect evidence, and put the pieces together until the ugly truth reveals itself... or not.

No takebacks


The story branches and ends based on your actions. There's no going back. Sure, you can rush your way to the end – if you don't mind paying the price. Play your cards right, and you might make it out alive.

How far will you go?


Some questions don't have a right answer. Will you sell out a friend to protect your family? Will you endanger a loved one in exchange for public safety? Will you keep the peace or reveal the horrible, world-shattering truth?

Hungry for Point & Click Adventure?


While the classics were great in their time, Lacuna does away with the baggage of many adventure game tropes:

  • Pointing & clicking Platformer movement controls (WASD / controller)
  • Selecting all dialog options one by one anyway Non-repeating conversations and choices
  • Inventory management and counter-intuitive puzzles Immersive, story-driven mysteries
  • Pixel hunting Optional outlines on anything interactable
  • Story grinds to a halt at every puzzle can always be driven forward
  • "x will remember this" Real choices and multiple endings
