Starpoint Gemini Warlords, the third game in a series of space simulators/RPGs, is set to release from Early Access tomorrow, and in order to drum up a bit of excitement the developers are currently giving away its predecessor Starpoint Gemini 2 completely free of charge. The only catch is that you need to claim your free game until May 24th, 10am PST. Once you do that, however, it will remain in your Steam account forever and you can download it at any time.

If you're like me and this is your first time meeting Starpoint Gemini 2, allow me to share with you one of the gameplay trailers. Its not exactly detailed, but it should give you a good idea of what Starpoint Gemini 2 is all about. Have a look:

As for the reviews, they are quite mixed. While the visuals and exploration are all seemingly excellent, there is a surprising amount of complaints about the story and various performance issues. As such, be prepared for an experience that might just simultaneously excite and annoy you. That said, you are getting it for free, so its probably worth checking out if you're into space simulators.

You can learn more about the Starpoint Gemini series, or just check out a few gameplay trailers, by heading over to the official website. And finally, allow me to send you off with a couple of images:
