Starpoint Gemini 2 - Two More Previews

by Couchpotato, 2014-01-24 01:18:45

Here are two more previews of the Early Access version of Starpoint Gemini 2.


Starpoint Gemini 2 is definitely something you should keep your eye on if a space exploration RPG is something that sounds interesting to you. In its current state it’s definitely a functional game despite the multitude of bugs plaguing it, but keep in mind that it’s still in alpha and that its campaign (along with various other features) still aren’t implemented yet. What’s there isn’t much, but it’s definitely a solid game and the developers are quite vocal on the forums which is always good to see. This has a lot of potential to be something great but we’ll just have to wait for its full release to see how it shapes up.


So, bottom line? I think there’s a lot of potential wrapped up in Starpoint Gemini 2, but I’m not sure a lot of it shines through this early on. Once there’s a fully-formed plot underneath the pretty good-looking wrapper, there’s definitely a chance for a pretty great final product. In the current state, though, unless you’re really, really into space sims, I don’t think buying into the early access is worth it – though, again, at least they’re kind enough to toss in the game’s prequel as a bonus, and hey, maybe you’re really into very nicely rendered asteroid mining simulations.
