It’s time to light a (virtual) smoke, pound the pavement, and ask the tough questions because today, publisher Assemble Entertainment and developer DigiTales Interactive are thrilled to announce that sci-fi noir interrogation simulator Lacuna is out now for Windows PC via Steam! In the game, players will wrap themselves in the sodden trenchcoat of grizzled Central Department of Investigation (CDI) agent Neil Conrad as he seeks to unravel a mystery that could have immensely dire consequences.
Dive deep into a complex system of branching dialogue options, dynamic conversations, shifty NPCs, and multiple unique endings that will have players guessing until the very end. Conrad must trust no one, ask plenty of questions, and keep his eyes peeled for important clues as he searches for answers in his unorthodox quest to get to the bottom of this conspiracy.
Watch the Lacuna launch trailer:
“Lacuna is a thrilling mystery that takes everything players love about the Noir genre and envelops it in a sci-fi twist, while updating the point-and-click genre for modern players seeking something fresh,” said Assemble Entertainment CEO Stefan Marcinek. “Players loved the prologue, and we’re pleased to finally allow them to get to the bottom of the mystery!”
Jasmin Pfeiffer and Julian Colbus, Co-Founders of DigiTales Interactive, added, “Lacuna is our debut title, and we can’t believe it’s really finished! It’s a work of passion that has accompanied us since our university days, and we are so happy we can finally share it with the world and see the decisions players will make. We believe that games are the best medium to tell an immersive and poignant story, and we hope that you will get exactly that from our game.”
