Twin Systems: Starpoint Gemini 2

By Adam Smith on September 29th, 2014.

This is the year in which I finally fulfilled my childhood dream by becoming an interest following a man who lives on a space station on Twitter. You might think that would be enough hot space action to satisfy my stellar carvings but you’d be wrong. I’ve got a hankering for space dust that’d make George Jung’s eyes as big as saucers. Thank the lord (or the ancient precursor race that seeded this planet) that we are living through a space game renaissance.

It’s the way of things. And so it is that Iceberg have released a demo for Little Green Men’s Starpoint Gemini, their space strategy roleplay them up from December last year. Jim took a look at it in January, and found it a tad slow, but certainly interesting. But maybe Jim was lying? You can now see for yourself by getting hold of the 755MB demo from here, or maybe here.

Some Thoughts On Starpoint Gemini

By Jim Rossignol on January 11th, 2011.


Little Green Men Games’ tactical space RPG Starpoint Gemini has been out for a few weeks now, and it’s been high on my list of priorities for examination. I don’t feel like I’ve played anything like enough of this (just a few hours) to warrant a full on verdict, but I still wanted to get some impressions down, because it’s a fairly interesting game. Read on for some thoughts on this space oddity.
