Starpoint Gemini 2 Will Support Oculus Rift

Iceberg Interactive and Little Green Men Games unveiled today that they’re implementing virtual reality headset Oculus Rift into their highly anticipated, upcoming space sim-RPG Starpoint Gemini 2.

Currently in Alpha on Steam’s Early Access program, Starpoint Gemini 2 will offer gamers the opportunity to launch fighter wings on unsuspecting enemies during space combat while utilizing Oculus Rift’s 3D, next-generation capabilities to provide unadulterated immersion.

Mario Mihokovic, CEO of Little Green Men Games, said:

“Even from our short time spent with Oculus Rift, we’re certain it’s a breakthrough in the making, bringing a whole new perspective on games in general. We’re thrilled for the ability to become a part of the VR revolution early on and can’t wait to see what we can do with it and what other developers will think of too.”

The sequel to Starpoint Gemini 1, Starpoint Gemini 2 is described as a unique space-simulation with role-playing elements that thrusts gamers into a fractious galactic space environment replete with 50 factions, dangerous wormholes, rift ways to speed travel, and a dynamic real-time 3D combat system.

Players can pilot more than 70 distinct, fully upgradeable space craft in a universe that’s powered with realistic physics provided by NVIDIA PhysX technology.

Enjoy!
