Early access to Starpoint Gemini Warlords is now underway
on Steam, offering the
first chance to check out the third installment in this space strategy sim
series. A new cinematic
trailer shows things off, and here's a rundown:
Interactive and Croatian developer Little Green Men Games, today launched
Starpoint Gemini Warlords, the next instalment of the highly successful
Starpoint Gemini series, onto Steamís Early Access program. The game introduces
many sought after new features including the player headquarters, a giant space
station, for storing the fleet and building new ships. As development of the
game progresses, research can be conducted there on weapons, ships, structures
and new HQ modules. Conquer, fight, salvage, rescue, mine, loot and trade your
way to interstellar glory, in an immense galaxy, close to ten times bigger than
in its predecessor Starpoint Gemini 2.
Created from the feedback and suggestions of the highly active player community,
Starpoint Gemini Warlords combines action, space-sim, RPG and strategy elements
to deliver the ultimate space experience.
Starpoint Gemini 2 never claimed to be a "Privateer"....
I played the main story up to a point at which the game didn't allow me to continue due to a nasty bug that they never fixed because only a few players encountered it. The game itself was pretty enjoyable though. The devs also released some free or reasonably priced addons for SG2. Support of the GOG version unfortunately was light years behind the Steam version. Several updates didn't even make it to GOG.
I for one will definitely get my hands on (the Steam version of) SGW sometime.

Is this something they addressed with this one?
I felt the same way and said so, than the devs told me I was wrong and not entitled to my opinion...so fuck them and their shitty game.
