Publisher Assemble Entertainment is thrilled to reveal today two brand new trailers for action-packed platformer Orbital Bullet and noir-inspired pixel-art adventure game Lacuna, both of which were unveiled at gamescom Digital 2020. Additionally, Assemble has announced a spring 2021 launch for Orbital Bullet and a summer 2021 launch for Lacuna.
It’s been hard keeping Orbital Bullet and Lacuna a secret, but the response we received at gamescom 2020 made it well worth the wait. 2021 is already primed to be an exceptional year for video games, and we’re thrilled to be involved in that excitement and success.Assemble Entertainment CEO Stefan Marcinek.
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 the player to utilize extensive dialogue options in order to make decisions with potentially serious consequences. In the game, players must use their moral compass to navigate an emotionally intense experience that may or may not stimulate some critical self-reflection.
