Assemble Entertainment has unveiled their lineup for Gamescom 2020. It includes a range of genres, and two entirely new games: Orbital Bullet and Lacuna. The first is a fast-paced, 360° action-platformer with some rogue-lite elements mixed into the design. Orbital Bullet takes place in a ring-shaped science fiction world. Meanwhile, Lacuna is a pixel art adventure that revolves heavily around story. Through deep dialog options, players will make choices whose consequences can be serious.

Some of Assemble Entertainment’s games will be appearing in Gamevasion, which is a gaming media alliance including Rocket Beans TV, Instinct3, and Freaks 4U Gaming. The press release included the following Gamevasion schedule for their games:


Endzone – A World Apart

Friday, August 28 (8:00 – 9:00 AM EST)

“The radiation soaked apocalyptic city-builder currently has more than 100,000 units sold on Steam Early Access and will be showcased by HandOfBlood and Nils (Rocket Beans).”

 

Lacuna

Saturday, August 29 (9:00 – 10:00 AM EST)

The narrative-driven pixel art Noir detective game will be featured during the ‘Spotlight On’ section and will include gameplay and an interview with the developers, DigiTales Interactive.

 

Orbital Bullet

Sunday, August 30 (8:00 – 9:00 AM EST)

Kill. Die. Modify. The 360° action-platformer with rogue-lite mechanics from SmokeStab will also be featured during the ‘Spotlight On’ section along with Rocket Beans and the dev team.

 

Leisure Suit Larry – Wet Dreams Dry Twice

Sunday, August 30 (10:00 – 11:00 AM EST)

Larry is back and wetter than ever in this new and perhaps ultimate adventure for the polyester-packin’ protagonist from German developer CrazyBunch. Check out the Let’s Play premier and some words from the dev-team.

 

Shakes on a Plane

Sunday, August 30 (9:00 – 10:00 AM EST)

The co-op time management sim that forces players to work together and maintain order on a chaotic passenger flight will finish the event in style with a head to head “May the Best Flight Attendant Take All” battle between Hamburg vs. Spandau.


 

They also say that their entire Gamescom 2020 lineup can be found in the Gamescom Now content hub. Furthermore, developer interviews for Endzone – A World Apart and Leisure Suit Larry – Wet Dreams Dry Twice will take place on Gamescom Studio on Friday, August 28th.

Assemble Entertainment will also be joining both fans and developers at the Gamescome Indie Arena Booth. There, developers will show off titles like Orbital Bullet and the investigative, Full Motion Video (FMV) game, Jessika. Free demos will be available online. Meanwhile those who attend the event can chat with developers or potentially get exclusive Gamescom discounts. Assemble Entertainment CEO, Stefan Marcinek, commented on their Gamescom 2020 lineup:

“Even though the festival and conference scene is treading new territory this year, we’re still extremely excited to show off the biggest lineup we’ve ever brought to Gamescom. We’re definitely bringing the heat this year, and I can’t wait to show off our catalog of well-loved hits and all-new reveals.”

 

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in his late 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES, SNES, and N64 among others. He loves Nintendo, but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks/bike rides, loves animals, and enjoys thunderstorms (and science in general).

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called Pre-Computer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode (a bare-bones version of BASIC) which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer, which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the Unity 3D game engine (a powerful and easy-to-use engine) and learning 3D modelling in Blender.

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
