The Assemble Quartet Released for the Steam Game Festival

Brand New Demos for Orbital Bullet, Lacuna, Highrisers and Squadron 51 with Brand new trailers for Lacuna and Highrisers available now

To celebrate the Steam Game Festival, publisher Assemble Entertainment has released four exciting new playable demos from their upcoming 2021 portfolio of games. These demos showcase brand new content and will give fans a taste of what’s in store from the award winning-publisher. The demos will go live tonight at 6.00pm UK / 7.00pm CET. 


First up is the fast-paced 360° action platformer Orbital Bullet developed by SmokeStab.

This action-packed platformer has 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. Orbital Bullet will be available on Steam Early Access this Spring. 

Next is story-driven pixel art adventure, Lacuna developed by DigiTales Interactive.

Set in a beautiful 2D sci-fi noir universe, Lacuna immerses players in a gritty detective story where players take on the role of CDI agent Neil Conrad and are tasked with making tough decisions by using their moral compass to navigate an emotionally intense experience that may or may not stimulate some critical self-reflection. Lacuna is scheduled to launch in summer 2021 on PC via Steam. 

The third game is the survival-crafting game Highrisers developed by Solar Power Games will also release a new demo with brand new, never before seen content.

In this urban survival RPG players must craft, explore and defend themselves in a desolate metropolis haunted by the ‘mysterious dreamers’ with a team of four unique survivors each with their own skills. This highly anticipated indie game was funded with more than 50.000€ by more than 1,000 supporters via Kickstarter. Highrisers will release in 2021. 


The final game is the recently announced Squadron 51 developed by Loomiarts – an intense dimension bending SHUMP inspired by the black and white classic sci-fi and monster movies of the 1950s. Squadron 51 is live on Kickstarter now, so fans can show their support and get ready to stop the alien invasion. 

Squadron 51 is scheduled to release on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC via Steam in 2021. 

Tune in to our Twitch channel today from 4 – 8 PM CET where Maria from the Assemble Team will play all four demos. The developers from all the games will join the livestream via voice chat to answer your questions!
