Lacuna subverts the classic story-driven adventure trope by nixing the tiresome "point-and-click" mechanic. Gone are the days of pixel hunting and other intrusive mechanics that interrupt the flow of the game. Other improvements on the genre include conversational choices that drive the story, narrative-based puzzles, interactable extras, various distinct endings, and a detective saga that is sure to stay with players long after completion.

You are Neil Conrad, CDI agent. 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. The story branches and ends based on your actions. There's no going back. Sure, you can rush your way to the end – if you don't mind paying the price. Play your cards right, and you might make it out alive. Some questions don't have a right answer. Will you sell out a friend to protect your family? Will you endanger a loved one in exchange for public safety? Will you keep the peace or reveal the horrible, world-shattering truth?
