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:

“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.”
