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.
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.
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.
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?
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
