Successor to the Starpoint Gemini franchise, Starpoint Gemini Warlords entered Steam Early Access a week ago and it's high time to start dishing out updates at a regular pace.

About This Game

Captain your own space ship and roam the galaxy in 3D in this tactical space simulator with tons of RPG depth ! Space has never looked so inviting - but images can betray...






It has been two years since the end of the second Gemini war, the situation in the wartorn system is further from resolution than ever.
The collection of freedom fighters named Gemini League is now reduced to a small group, with no power or influence, after losing their leaders. The Empire meanwhile, has used the re-opened Starpoint to occupy the once renegade Gemini sector - and beyond.



A multitude of Imperial warship fleets and mammoth motherships have crushed every trace of opposition. The situation was looking bleak, when they suddenly halted their armada and re-shifted their focus on fortifying Starpoint with staggering numbers. Rumours soon spread that they were afraid of something coming after them through the T-gate, from what was supposed to be the core of the Empire. What are they running from that makes even the mighty Empire tremble?



Starpoint Gemini 2 will take players on a breath taking journey, with dark secrets and unimaginable twists that will finally unveil the incredible truth...

Key features:

  • Complex, but easy-to-use RPG system, now coupled with dynamic real-time 3D combat.
  • Explore the dynamic game world as a whole, rather than through individual maps.
  • Use T-Gates, wormholes and riftways to travel faster around the Gemini system .
  • Fifty diverse factions ranging from states and companies to outlaws, locked in a powerstruggle, with over 100 commodities to trade or plunder.
  • Special revocable licenses acquired from factions offer various bonuses and unlock new options.
  • Hire mercenary captains to follow you on your travels and share your fate, and employ officers to fill key positions on your ship (engineering, navigation, tactical).
  • Random missions get generated depending on the player’s actions and allegiances.
  • Over 70 unique ships, fully upgradeable with various ship systems, with a.o. visible turrets, and a large arsenal of destructive weapons to blast enemies to pieces.
  • Direct ship controls create complete immersion.
  • Advanced physics provided by NVIDIA PhysX technology

After a bit of time with this game; there are a few things to say about it. First of all the controls get a bit to get used to. The game play can be a bit daunting at first, but after a fashon it ends up adding to the total game experience. The Steam workshop mod support is quite extensive and can create a completely unique and individulized experience. Is it a true AAA title, no, is it a bit different and fun to play yes.

Do I recommend it? Of course I do! It's a bloody masterpiece! And the fact that a team so small made a game this big is something I deepply respect. And that they are giving us free content updates regulary. And that they are actively talking to us on forums. And that they implement most of community suggestions. And that they made the game highly moddable and with Workshop support. Yes I deeply respect that and I wholeheartedly recommend this game. Even if you leave it after the campaign, you will still have more than 20 hours in it which alone makes it worth its price.

Their newest game, Warlords is still in alpha but I can see how bigger and better it might become until release. If you want to participate in Early Access, go with Warlords, and if you want a finished game, go with SPG2.

Didn't expect much and got a masterpiece. I thought this was some 2D tower defense game and I was wrong. This is a brilliant 3D space game with tactical combat, fantastic soundtrack and the devs have a beautiful sense of humor. You are transporting Annoying Guy to the next station, pirates attack you while you have your cargo hold full of adult magazines and things like that.

Modding community is very active and there are so many mods here that everyone can find something for themselves. Star Wars, Star Trek, you name it.

Highly recommended!

Steam did not update the real time invested into the game, so ignore the current number when I say that I really like the game so far and would definitely recommend it. Might be a bit outdated for the current standards, but that's a subjective opinion.

Pure awesomeness! I just adore those funny things like adult magazines and Very annoying guy and other details. This game has soul and it eats X: Rebirth for breakfast. And this community eats EvE's community for breakfast. Anyway, I'm not hungry anymore. SPG2 is here to stay and Warlords will be even better.

Highly recommended! This game is similar to so many other games, yet so different in every aspect. These guys really offered something special.
And if you have a question, devs are answering them on Steam forums 24/7. Something that is rarely seen.

My boyfriend got me this game cause I liked Evochron Mercenary. I'm as happy as I can be with it. Highly addictive and fun!

Thumbs up!

Update: After so many hours, I still feel compelled to return to the game from time to time. I left my heart in Gemini, it would seem. :)

I highly, highly recommend this title. Its vast universe will give you many hours of gameplay. Fantastic game, fantastic forums and support. Together with Secrets of Aethera and Titans, this is a huge game. Not to forget full original game port Origins, available as free DLC for all Starpoint Gemini 2 players.

Game is completely moddable so if you want to assume command of Enterprise or some other ship available in mods, you can. ;-)

I like this game, I do, but 35$ I feel is too steep for what it offers. At first I thought this game was like Mount and Blade in space, with so many factions, different types of outposts, and skills oriented to being a leader. That however is not the case, the game is more or less a dungeon crawler RPG without the dungeons.

The story is fairly bland, and frankly the voice acting of the main character is so outright awful I had to turn off dialogue volume, and I just quickly got bored with the story missions.

Theres no real "looting" and going out of your way to be a merchant king through cargo hauling is a waste of time, the early portion of the game is farming money to get better ships, once you have better ships you just capture enemy ships for quick cash and farm levels. Looting ships for weapons is a waste of time, as all stations are static and theres no random element to their inventories, simply fly to the station selling the best weapon of your chosen class, and buy it, everything quickly becomes a monotony of going from X to Y and repeating.

The biggest issue I have with the game is saving, the save system is abysmal. You can only save while anchored at a planet or base, if you arrive at a friendly base and find it swarming with enemies (in some sectors this happens constantly) you can find yourself trapped in a prolonged battle, or killed, when all you wanted to do was save the game and go have dinner.

You cant side with factions, or take over stations, or influence anything, so dont expect any depth with the politics of the world, you are either "good" or "bad" and that determines who is friendly, nuetral, or hostile. Good being the vast majority of the galaxy. So the dozens of factions in the game, may as well be two factions.

"Commanding a fleet" isnt as exciting as I hoped either, its not so much a fleet, as you having two hirelings, hence part of my comparison to the game as a dungeon crawler.

There is plenty of good though, the actual gameplay is fun, you are more captain than pilot, you configure power usage, set speed, battles arent about quick manuevering so much as overwhelming firepower and good positioning. In a star wars example, you are piloting a Star Destroyer, rather than a Tie Fighter. (fighter squadrons are in fact a system on later ships) Just be sure to go over the controls, I spent far too long without realizing you could activate automated fire.

Bounties are probably my favorite aspect, unlike most games, bounty targets arent static, you start the game with a full list of bounties, and they move around the galaxy on their own, when you choose to hunt them you have to go by "last spotted" information and attempt to cut them off. These are also the most challenging fights available, and shouldnt be taken lightly.

After a while though I begin questioning my goal, Its not difficult to get better equipment, at least not after a certain point, and the only thing you have to upgrade is your ship. A uninteresting campaign that I cant be bothered to finish? The bounty targets to award money I dont really need? Side missions that are much the same as the main missions?

This game could be improved by aspects of strategy (something I think Warlords addresses, though the game is very very early access so I dare not bother with it yet.) and aspects of procedural generation. Non static stores, to put more of a emphasis on looting (Perhaps ships produced by that faction are much, much more expensive, but always available and the randomly generated ships are cheaper, like buying a new car vs. used car.) and procedurally generated weapons Diablo style. A star system you can purchase as a home base, to build your own colonies, defenses, shipyards to give you more to do than just upgrade your ship.

The game has so, so, so much potential, and the team that worked on it seem dedicated and helpful to their community, the framework is here for a game unlike any other, and I am excited by where the team goes with warlords once its finished. If you can nab this for $20 or less, do it. But in the end, whats that phrase? A mile wide, a inch deep.

Relaxing, simple, accessible and fun.

SG2 is easy to learn and relaxing to play. While other games might have more depth, this game is so easy to pick and casually play that you get easily get sucked in.

I can see that it won't satisfy forever, but well worth the ride.

I had fun tooling in this game. It's got a good sense of progression, and it's not exactly lacking in depth or scope. One complaint is that it's not as polished as it could be. Released in 2014, you can tell a lot of great art and design work was put into this game but it's already starting to show it's age.

I personally compare it to a game like Elite Dangerous, which has a high amount of finish and looks great, but is ultimately a very boring game which lacks depth and has a very frustratingingly long grinding progression.

Starpoint Gemini on the other hand, has better pacing. While it may not be as technically complex or broad in scale, it's a good break as a single player game.

Good game. I got it in Humble bundle for about 11 pounds, its worth more. I have played for about 30 hours and havent completed the story line yet. Lots of different things to do.

My issue with the game is the simplicity of it, its not always a bad thing but I would have preferred a bit more difficulty in scanning and docking etc. Its like freelancer pretty much. Pretty straighforward. good graphics, nothing mindblowing and I would have preffered nicer and more varied skyboxes and a better drawdistance. That said its still pretty and will run on most computers I would imagine even very old one but I could be wrong.

The amount of weapon syustems and ships is also very good.

oh, I would have preferred a bit more depth in the trading aspect, larger storage etc but again what it does is enough to entertain.

I would definately recommend this game to people, and even though I paid only a fraction for the gold edition I would say the game with its dlc would be worth a whole lot more in terms of gameplay value, dare I say 30 pounds or so.
