'Starpoint Gemini 2' Announced - Screens

Starpoint Gemini 2 is a tactical space RPG set in a science-fiction universe, which focuses on the control and strengths of individual vessels and their captains.

Starpoint Gemini 2 will take players back into Gemini star system, just a few years after Starpoint wormhole has been reopened. Forces of the Earth Empire rushed into Gemini once again, but their strange behavior and appearance of unknown secret factions from Imperial mainspace suggests that something more important is taking place behind the scene, something larger than the Empire, their conquest and perhaps even larger than Gemini itself...

Starpoint Gemini 2 takes the best parts of the original game and elevates them to a significantly higher level.

Mario Mihokovic, CEO at LGM Games says: “Starpoint Gemini 2 takes the best parts of the original game and elevates it to a whole new level. The scale of improvements is truly astonishing and many of them have been introduced as a result of valuable feedback from both players and press.“

Daniel Mihokovic, CTO at LGM Games adds: “We wanted to express our thanks to all fans of Starpoint Gemini. Without them, the creation of this new game wouldn't be possible. Just like bringing this new gaming experience to fans across the world wouldn't be possible without our co-operation with Iceberg Interactive. The work Iceberg did on publishing the original title gave us all the answers we needed regarding where to go with publishing the sequel.“

“We were very pleased with the reaction of gamers to Starpoint Gemini. It proved there is a demand in the market for complex games set in space that offer a high level of freedom and longevity of gameplay. Starpoint Gemini 2 uses the same general guidelines, but with modified combat mechanics, full 3D space and greatly improved graphic features“, says Iceberg Interactive CEO Erik Schreuder, adding: “The deal was actually struck a while ago and LGM has been working on the game behind closed doors for some time now, making solid progress. We're so very excited to bring this much improved second instalment to both existing fans and newcomers to the Gemini universe later this year.“


Besides dramatically improved graphics, LGM team has adopted many of suggestions from our fans. Players will now enjoy full 3D environment, complete freedom in selecting an individual path to victory, more direct combat controls and streaming engine that eliminates all loading points. All the changes that are introduced will create a much more convincing feeling of controlling a starship of truly epic size and power. Once your technological avatar has been obtained and customized, you can embark on a journey to acquire wealth and influence by trade, research and peace...or simply strike your enemies with deadly force in a way that guarantees your fame.
