Starpoint Gemini 3 Gameplay Debut is Fast, Frenetic, and Very Exciting

Starpoint Gemini 3

Little Green Men Games has revealed the first gameplay of Starpoint Gemini 3, and it may just bring the series to the attention of a new audience.

A highlight of the new footage is the closer camera than the series has featured in the past—as well as a cockpit camera. These changes, though small, seem to speed up the action, with the added bonus of appearing to make targeting easier.

Beyond a brief glimpse at some environments and combat, though, the teaser shows little.

However, Starpoint Gemini 3 is bringing some noteworthy changes to the series, including player-controlled drones, a bigger universe, and fully 3D rendered characters.

At present, Starpoint Gemini 3 has no specific release date, though it is scheduled to arrive on Steam at some point later this year. For anyone unfamiliar, the game is a sprawling space RPG that allows players to craft their own career through a personal story.

Layers of Fear 2 Launching Late Next Month

Layers of Fear 2

Layers of Fear 2 has been talked about for a while now and is finally coming late next month.

Announced today by publisher Gun Media, the sequel to the psychological romp through artistic ego Layers of Fear is set to launch May 28 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

Gameplay-wise, the sequel looks to cover similar ground as its predecessor. As a first-person psychological horror with “an emphasis on exploration and story,” players meander through heavily-scripted set-pieces while solving puzzles and being scared a whole lot.

Layers of Fear 2, though, will be swapping the paintbrush for the dizzying heights of Hollywood. According to the game’s Steam synopsis, players “control a Hollywood actor who heeds the call of an enigmatic director to take on the lead role in a film shot aboard an ocean liner.”

Stifled by their own acting ambitions, the protagonist finds themselves alone and marooned on an increasingly nightmarish boat. The game’s unnamed protagonist must navigate their own past and the challenges the director sets them to unlock the secret to not just the film they are starring in, but their own motivations.

The original Layers of Fear was a captivating take on modern, story-driven horror, so the sequel’s inventive premise and greater scope are welcomed. While the sequel is embarking to a radically different setting, the title looks likely to recapture the original’s claustrophobic, atmospheric level design.
