Publisher Assemble Entertainment is thrilled to reveal today the first announcement trailers for action-packed platformer Orbital Bullet and noir-inspired pixel-art adventure game Lacuna, both of which will be formally unveiled at Gamescom Digital 2020. Additionally, Assemble has announced a Spring 2021 PC launch for Orbital Bullet and a Summer 2021 PC launch for Lacuna.
“It’s been a challenge keeping Orbital Bullet and Lacuna under wraps, but the response we received so far has made it well worth the wait,” said Assemble Entertainment CEO Stefan Marcinek. “2021 is already primed to be an exceptional year for video games, and we’re thrilled to be involved in that excitement and success. Let’s do Gamescom!”
Orbital Bullet — winner of ‘Best Concept with Prototype’ category and 2nd prize in the ‘Prototype Young Talent’ category at Deutscher Entwicklerpreis 2019 — is a fast-paced 360° action-platformer with rogue-lite elements based in a unique, ring-shaped sci-fi world where all of the action takes place in a circular pattern. Players must fight through a variety of procedurally-generated planets and use intense body modifications, crafting, and heavy weaponry to make it out alive.
Lacuna — winner of ‘Best Prototype’ at Game Award Saar — is a story-based pixel art adventure in a beautiful 2D sci-fi “noir” universe, which challenges you to utilize extensive dialogue options in order to make decisions with potentially serious consequences. In the game, you’ll step into the shoes of CDI agent Neil Conrad. 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.
