Update v0.7001 - Doing stuff with mission markers

April 1st, 2014

Nope. No April's fool joke here. Just one of those regular updates we've grown accustomed to :).

For this update's highlight, I'll choose the updated mission object markers as they really can help a lot. And as a graphic/gameplay highlight I suggest you try going near one of those wormholes :).

We went with this update today so we can focus our next update on finally bringing at least a couple of campaign missions, along with other things :)

Safe and lucrative travels, captains!

Starpoint Gemini 2 enters BETA!

March 17th, 2014

v0.7000, March 17, 2014 BETA ENTERED!
Time to cross into the 0.7 version range ladies and gents. This means we've crossed into the BETA stage of development.

To explain a bit what this means exactly I'll make a list to make things completely clear so bear with me ;) :

  • Entering BETA does NOT mean we've got every feature implemented and we're not stopping until we implement everything we've got planned.
  • Entering BETA DOES mean we have to stop adding more features for implementation, at least for now if we're to finish the game ;).
  • Entering BETA DOES mean we will completely focus on implementing any and all features left on the to-do list as well as finishing all features implemented partially.
  • Entering BETA DOES mean we will focus on FIXING BUGS and later on BALANCING and OPTIMIZATION.
  • Entering BETA does NOT mean we're not looking forward to more suggestions and comments. Feel free to continue posting them. We will continue adding to the wish-list for later implementation. :)

In a nutshell, it's time to wrap it up, but wrap it up PROPERLY. And to do that, we need time. Every new implemented feature almost certainly comes with its own set of bugs and glitches that need to be ironed out.

We have to thank the amazing community that supported us through the alpha stage in Early Access. We owe you a debt we can hardly repay, but we will do our best by completing SG2, polishing it up, and continue building on that foundation :).

Seeing as announcements are limited in size, I'll post a link to the update thread on the discussion board where you can find the entire changelist for this update.

Safe travels captains!

About the 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, and the situation in the wartorn system is further from resolution than ever before. 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

**UPDATE** Starpoint Gemini 2 Has Made it To The Beta Phase...

If you love space games then this one will keep you going for a long time! It is still in development but is quite playable and fun even in alpha...
This is a rare gem because the Dev team takes a very open and active role in communicating with the players and taking to heart the feedback, you can see the result of this with each update! I strongly believe that this is going to be a great game.

In case you have not noticed yes I am a hard-core space gamer;)
Even in alpha state this game is well worth the price and in better shape than most release quality games!. You start the game in a pre-defined ship that you can sell to get a different ship(be it a bigger one)there is a garage that you can park all the ships you have this is a great feature. There is plenty to do, such as mining which is done via blowing the astriods apart and getting the ore that drops. This feature is still being worked on and will get even better.

Trading is also good, with all the many stations and planets you can spend many hours in search of a better price for goods. There is also freelance missions, currently there is passenger, trade, assassination, patrol and rescue they are quite good but this is a feature that is still being tweaked so expect them to get even better:)

The graphics are really well done and run good on most systems. Gemini is a huge place with lots of areas that you will want to visit and explore, in a way it reminds me of freelancer in regards to exploring and how trading works. This is a quote from danijel one of the developers about trading
"Let me give a more detailed explanation. Trading is planned to be similar to that of Freelancer: fixed prices of goods on various stations/planets. Commodities are the cheapest where they are produced.

We felt that wasn't enough, so we'll also have random global events firing off that can impact prices, either globally for the entire Gemini, or on a region-basis, or on a faction basis etc. Since we felt that still wouldn't be enough, we'll also implement certain triggers that the player can fire off to initiate such global events. For example, knocking out a number of gas collectors in a region, will inevitably have an impact on gas prices in the region and beyond".

The sound is also quite nice that draws you into that mood of open space. The voice overs and the crew sounds are excelent and they are still adding more in. The sound effects such as explosions and weapons fit in just right.

The game runs good with very little CTD's and that is damn good for a game that is still in alpha state!
All in all I give this game an A+ so if you are on the fence about buying it, stop and get it now. By doing so you are doing a great deed in helping fund a really great game that I think will have its name in the "Space Game Hall of Fame"... Also be sure to check out the community forums http://steamcommunity.com/app/236150/discussions/ And the main website http://www.starpointgemini.com/
Best of luck to all the pilots and god speed.
The newest patch has introduced allot of new content and fixes... The performance has been greatly
improved also so if you not got this legendary space game yet... Well, what are you waiting for ;)

This is a very entertaining space game with a healthy side order of role playing and is pretty well polished even at this early access stage. The developers have a genuine rapport with the community and this is helping to shape a very enjoyable game. Until the final product release and all features and story campaign are implemented there is still a lot to enjoy in the sandbox mode. If you like beautiful ships, trading, chasing anomalies, blowing up asteroids and firing lasers at baddies there’s a lot to like. The music is awesome too.

Very good game for being in ALPHA - quite a lot has been implemented to keep you busy, and the best part is the full support for modding!

I was looking for a space game that could keep me interested, and I found it with Starpoint Gemini 2.
Fun game mechanics with a nice RPG twist.

I recommend you go check it out, and if it tickles your fancy, buy a copy before the price increases!

The playstyle is an assorted combination of the Freelancer + tactical elements of Star Wolves + diversity of EV Nova + some good original ideas on top.
Do you remember that feeling of excitement when you discover something, something that makes you feel more alive? I feel a deep immersion when playing this game which is so rare nowadays (even in alpha state atm (nov 2013), with only a basic features present). The devs put a part of their souls into creation of this, I feel it in all those small details here and there. I'm looking forward for a release, and quite positive that anyone who loves "space sims" won't be disappointed with this game, especially with such a good modding support.
