SPACE FANS REJOICE: STARPOINT GEMINI 2 LANDS ON STEAM TODAY!
New Gameplay Trailer released on launch
Haarlem, The Netherlands September 26, 2014 Iceberg Interactive and developer Little Green Men Games are proud to announce today, that their hugely anticipated Space Sim with RPG roots, Starpoint Gemini 2, has left Early Access, and is available now on Steam with an SRP of $34.99, discounted by 20% during launch week.
Starpoint Gemini 2 enables players to command their own Starship, and roam the enormous Gemini star system, to mine, loot, fight or trade - or play missions via the main story arc or side missions.
"This past year of Early Access has been an incredible ride,) said Danijel Mihokovic, Lead Scripter at Little Green Men Games. (We have seen an amazing community take shape and our thanks go out to them. Our forums really got overwhelmed with positive feedback, productive opinions and countless new ideas, and in a joint effort between us and our community, we have managed to raise the quality of the game significantly. As we embrace the game's official release today, we understand one thing - this is the end of one process and the beginning of another. Even after 50 updates during Early Access, the wish-list created on the community forums will enable and oblige us to continue to refine the game and add new content for a long, long while. And that is something we really look forward to."
The final update from Beta to launch includes some important features:
