The first Starpoint Gemini 3 development diary leads through several topics, among which one of the most important is the “public opinion”.

LGM has decided to thoroughly analyze previous franchise installments to learn about their strong and weak points. The research also included examining other space games to flesh out the idea of a gameplay that Starpoint Gemini fans would find most immersive. It goes without saying that this “research” was also a very fun one.

Public opinion

Starpoint Gemini series has a big fan base and it was important for us to take their suggestions into consideration. We received hundreds of ideas, many of which were not possible to apply to our
previous games or were simply ludicrous, but entering a new development cycle, we were able to give them another go.

Even though we faced many different ideas from our fans, their feedback was, as always, very helpful in deciding what kind of gameplay experience we wanted to create. Most people wanted to add the cockpit view, making the controls more intuitive for the players, and to enrich the Starpoint Gemini universe with interesting characters and an immersive story. The idea of turning one of our
spaceships into a flying pink pony came up again, but, sadly, didn’t quite fit in with the general concept of the game.

What’s next?

In next development diary LGM will shed more light on the project so that the fans would get the impression of what they can expect in Starpoint Gemini 3. All of the previous Starpoint Gemini
installments made big shifts from the original concept and this one is no exception. The new approach the studio is taking will give an opportunity to experience Starpoint Gemini universe like
never before.
