Starpoint Gemini 3 - Available in Early Access

Starpoint Gemini 3 is now available in Early Access on Steam and GOG.

Why Early Access?

“Starpoint Gemini 3 has reached a stage in which we'd love to get players involved. There's a lot You can do in the game and a lot more is on the way, but what we're really looking forward to is Your Feedback, with a capital F. Our previous successful endeavors in Early Access have shown us just how crucial that is to create, not a good game, but a great one. We'd like to invite everyone to join us in this.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Starpoint Gemini 3 is far from finished. The core is definitely here, but that will also require more polish. We envision that the minimum we'll spend in Early Access is 12 months. We'll keep everyone up-to-date on the discussion forums and through announcements.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The essential features and a base layer of assets is already here. What is further on the menu is the rest of the gameplay features (the skill system and crafting are NOT yet implemented), possibly adding some following Your feedback, and of course the remainder of the planned assets (models, visual and sound effects...). These too can include some additions based on Your feedback. One of the larger „chunks“ that's missing is a big portion of the game world. The initial Early Access build features roughly one third of the entire game world, so this is one of the areas of the game that will be expanded significantly during our time in Early Access.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The initial Early Access build has the core mechanics in place: flying, upgrading your ship, combat, some base missions, trading, mining, scavenging, a tutorial and several of the storyline missions as well. Roughly one third of the game world is already here, though a lot more content will be added to the current in-game sectors over time.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Yes. The game's lowest price will be on entering Early Access and the price will go up over the course of Early Access. We will announce all price changes well in advance on the discussion boards.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We encourage everyone to join the discussions on the forums here. If Discord is more your thing, then you can join the public channel (linked below). We're monitoring both as best as we can, and we'll answer any question You might have as soon as possible. We can't wait to hear from You!”
