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. While the classics were great in their time, Lacuna does away with the baggage of many adventure game tropes: - Non-repeating conversations and choices - Immersive, story-driven mysteries - Optional outlines on anything interactable - Story can always be driven forward - Real choices and multiple endings
