Starpoint Gemini 2 Space RPG Could Come To Linux

Posted by , | Views: 7,348
In Starpoint Gemini 2 you 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 war-torn system is further from resolution than ever before.

The developers noted on their Steam forum that it is constantly on their minds to do a Linux port:
QuoteCrossing over to Linux is definitely something lurking in our minds constantly ;).

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 power-struggle, 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


One thing we can never be short of is RPG games, especially a good looking space-ship RPG. The game is currently in Early Access on Steam and it's showing real promise, so it would be great to see it come along.

Personally I think it looks fantastic.

Also do you faithful GOL visitors like the "could come" news, I have a fair few of them, but I am unsure how people find them, so if you want more let me know!

and hopefully "crossing over" doesn't mean "crossover"

No problem with 'could be' ported to Gnu/linux news.

Personally, I prefer a bit more concrete news than "might/could" articles. I find them pretty frustrating. I want to know what I'll be playing in 1, 3 or 6 months, not what some developer would like to do, maybe, if they get time, at some point in the vague future.

However, one advantage to these articles is that if they generate enough "wow, that looks awesome" comments, then perhaps you can point the devs back to the article as evidence of interest in the port. But unless it's something huge (like Metro was), I doubt that'll actually happen.

The problem is if no one like say us here at GOL links to something to generate interest, there won't be in which is why I like posting them, I probably will keep up with them, but there aren't that many of them to be fair.

How can we convince them to bring the game to Linux? Many companies give good words saying that it will be a Linux port, and then it never came. The game looks good.

That was my immediate thought, too.

It looks awesome.
Would buy it in a heartbeat.
I only use Linux.
