Critic Reviews for Lacuna - A Sci-Fi Noir Adventure

It doesn't take a gumshoe to tell that Lacuna is a stellar, Noir-inspired adventure, that is absolutely worth investigating further. Other than a few quality of life tweaks, it's hard to find much wrong with this narrative-driven hunt and click. Be sure not to let this suspect slip through your fingers.

‎Responsibility is a concept integrated into people's consciousness that gives the opportunity to reflect, guide and assess the consequences of actions. Taking responsibility is a challenge, as it is much easier to point the finger at others than‎‎ to take the time to analyze our decisions.‎‎ And Lacuna – A Sci-Fi Noir Adventure gives us the key to recognizing the causes of what is happening to us in a universe sheltered in crime and mystery. It allows us to see the reality of the facts to act accordingly, facing our part in the conflict.‎

Lacuna is a slick noir adventure debut handled remarkably well by a tiny indie team.

Overall, Lacuna is an interesting adaptation on the traditional point-and-click gameplay design. Though my interest in the characters and story plateaued around the halfway point of the game, they are both pretty well thought out and your mileage/interest in them may fair better than mine. At $20, it’s worth a look for fans of sci-fi noir adventure games.

Lacuna is a surprise gem. It's a game where your choices matter. It will require some deep thinking and quite a bit of reading. But that's what makes it an excellent detective game. If you're up for a challenge, you shouldn't pass up Lacuna.

With excellent writing, great art and fun puzzles, Lacuna is a must-play for fans of the noir detective genre, and makes a compelling case for non-fans to take a look, though it is held back by an unfortunate smoking mechanism and some heavy handed metaphors.

Lacuna is a beautiful looking futuristic noir detective story with a great soundtrack that really makes you realise how much your decisions matter. Be prepared to do a lot of reading and research in-game so you make informed choices, because if you don't a bad ending is waiting for you!

Lacuna is not very long, but it has really high replay value and it checks the correct boxes of an adventure game. But what makes Lacuna really memorable are the atmosphere and the fact that it focuses on consequences rather than morality.
