General Information

Available on:PCMay 20, 2021

Developer: DigiTales Interactive

Publishers: Assemble Entertainment, WhisperGames, Mayflower Entertainment

Genre: Adventure

The Save the World Edition includes Lacuna and the game’s atmospherical 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

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.

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

Lacuna meets expectations with its reasonable price, sprawling interesting story, gameplay that appeals to our nostalgia, nice graphic style and music.

How much of the bigger picture you’re capable of piecing together matters, with the fate of your job and the lives of numerous different characters hanging in the balance. Lacuna is a well-written, wonderfully reactive game where many of your decisions make a very real difference.
