Gemini – A Journey of Two Stars is an interactive poem and video game about two stars flying into the heavens together.

​In Gemini, the player controls the movement of a star that has descended to the earth. Soon it comes across another star—a little one with its own intentions and personality. Together, the two stars move in tandem to explore mythical spaces, share moments of joy, and overcome obstacles. Through the journey, the player comes to learn more about

the little star and how to fly beautifully. After finishing the game once, the player unlocks a local two-player mode to share the experience with a family member, friend, or partner.

The story of Gemini is told wordlessly. It gives the player the freedom to determine the meaning of its metaphors through playful exploration of its world and mechanics.

Fly high, journey far, and enjoy.

The game is now available on the Appstore. Checkout Gemini’s website for more.
