OMG, Starpoint Gemini II Announced!!!

Starpoint Gemini is a fine game.

Starpoint Gemini is Getting a Sequel!

Well…wow…just wow…I just got an email from Dorijan at Little Green Men announcing Starpoint Gemini II!!! I enjoyed the first game a lot, so this is REALLY exciting. According to the press release (PDF here), the new game’s most prominent features are a “streaming universe without load points and tactical combat with direct controls in 3D”. This is great because the loading screens got in the way of the immersion in the first game, and took place on a 2D plane.

Besides these features, the game also has:

  • Three character classes
  • Randomly generated missions based on actions and allegiances
  • 150 commodities to trade
  • Over 50 fully upgradable ships.
  • Hire mercenary captains and officers to aid in your journey

Overall, sounds pretty good to me, and I’ll bring you more info as I get it. The game’s proposed release date is Q4, 2012.

    I played the first game and unfortunately after a series of CTD and other nasty bugs I uninstalled it, however the game did seem really cool and given the info about this second game and what it brings new in the scene, I'll probably get this one too.

      I believe it got several patches, so it might be worth looking into trying again. :-)

    Indeed, Starpoint Gemini 2 should arrive sometine in Q3 this year. First screenshots are spectacular comparing to the original game. If they avoid bugs this time, this title just might be a big positive surprise. I loved first game, but graphics was a bit old. So, if all they claim for the sequel turns out to be true, cool! New screenshots are at www.starpointgemini.com just bear in mind you might need to refresh the page unless you want to get access to old website
