Price Bump: $8

Zigfrak's base price will be getting a bump from $4.99 to $7.99, pending Steam's approval of the change.

This is a long-planned change based on several factors. In a nutshell, running a small business in California is expensive, and indies should not undersell themselves. That's the cost of a free expansion!

We will be promoting the BBQ feature release to the main public branch soon, pending a little more fix-up of the things it broke.

Let me preface this review by saying i play a lot of games..... like a lot. 26 years old and i've been playing since SNES days. My collection of games played is very ecclectic and extensive, however the amount of games i've actually completed is very small. Usually games don't seem to keep my attention all the way through wether it be boring story, overused mechanics, too much simplicity, or just not adding anything new. I really can count on 2 hands (and maybe some toes) how many games i've actually beat.

And This Is One Of Them!

Zigfrak was such a huge diamond of a find for me. The gameplay was so fun! I loved flying through space blowing the crap out of things, the sounds of nuclear fallout and blackholes inundating my ears. The loot filled Piñatas that are your enemies burst with colorful gear to make yourself o so stronger with. And the insanely charismatic and humorous storyline kept me entertained till the very end (seriously this game could be its own meme generator). This was easily one of my favorite games of all times, and hell, its super cheap too! Not only that but the Dev is coming out with a free expansion thats going to add soooooooooo much to the game. Do yourselves a favor guys and get this game, support the awesome Dev, play something you're going to love! I know i did!

The gameplay is a little wonky, like the click and drag thing gets old quick when there's enemies whizzing around your ship and you've just run out of mousepad. The tutorial doesn't explain enough (e.g. the combat training doesn't show you where your hull indicator is!) and the UI is absolutely atrocious... everything is in drop down menus, and it's hard to tell where that thing you looted from that derilct ship went.

Overall, a promising proof of concept, but it falls way, WAY short of Rebel Galaxy.

Seizure warning.
The very few issues I have with the game are the bright flashes that white out your screen all the time, the static effects, and other crap that completely ruins visibility. They can hurt your eyes and might give you headaches.

That said, I don't even have a big problem with what was mentioned above, and chances are neither will you once you get used to them. The gameplay, story, and everything is well with the $5 price. I burned through the campaign for the first time, it took me 12 hours, and I get the feeling I'm not even close to done with this game yet, as there is so much I haven't explored or done, and I haven't yet even reached max level.

If you got $5 to spare, grab this game. It's worth it.

I can't recommend Zigrafk in its current form, but it's a great idea. Why not bring the loot-filled fun of "Torchlight" or "Borderlands" to the space-sim genre? The notion is brilliant, because it can, in theory, speed up the "go on missions, upgrade your ride" loop to a lightning pace. (And it can also create some very zany ship loadouts.)

The problem here is not the lack of a novel idea. No, the problem is the execution of the flying and fighting. Zigfrak delivers a disappointing experience on those fronts, with strange ship handling and uninspired "dogfight" mechanics. There's also the problem of all the HUD displays that pop onto the screen, covering a huge amount of visual real-estate with what amounts to database entries. These elements, as drivers of the wider loot mechanic, have to be a lot of fun...but they aren't yet. They feel like they didn't get very much attention.

What I would love to see Entheogen do would be to mod a game that already has fun combat and flight mechanics. A specialized loot installation, modification, and crafting mechanic could be built for stations and planets, making that part of the game a focused experience all on its own.

The problem with a negative critique is that you're essentially shooting down somebody's hard work. I especially hate to do that with something like this, which tries to go in a bold direction. The developers have come up with an underlying concept that I really want to play - it's just that the actual playing isn't engaging.

Just play Freelancer instead, or DarkStarOne if you have a better machine, that's my advice. Actually play both of those (right now), they are the best space sims ever, and this CLEARLY is not. Admittedly, my playtime on Zigfrak is limited so far, but I can tell this game is not going to pick up much.

The saving grace for me is that I paid pennies for it in a sale, so er, that's okay. I may try and play this more at somepoint in the future, kind of "have" to try beat every game I start, it's my policy. So assuming I do, and it surprises me, then I'll adjust my review.

This is definitly a underestimated game.
The beginning seemed a bit extreme because the impact of flashes and effects tends to cause additional panic on the battlefield. But as soon as the player realizes, that it is not as critical as it seem,s it begins to make real fun. This game lives of the extremes! The missions are quite interesting and different (more than go to and rescue protect or kill XYZ). Many interesting kinds of tasks ensure that even the last missions and the engame (after campaign) are still interesting and entertaining. The graphics are unique and due its overload of effects really beautiful. The huge amount of different weapons hava LOTS of different graphics, behaviors and effects!!!!! I suggest to grind during the campaign some time outside of the missions to get the level a bit up and shorten in this way the time to the alien stuff (the way seems a bit long, but you need to get the requirement just once and not for every item and stronger weapons in later game shorten the way even more). For people, who like to loot, this game is definitly worth buying.

the ui is horrible
the overview and gameflow weird
but its a mix between a 4x title and diablo
If you can deal with games that take you a while to get into and you look for a new kind of grind, go for it.

"A qui se destine Zigfrak ? Aux amoureux de loot et à ceux qui veulent du shoot spatial simple, sans aucune prise de tête. Son problème, c’est qu’il ressemble énormément à un jeu destiné à des parties multijoueurs mais reste bloqué sur du solo ou on se sent bien seul." - GameSideStory.com - http://www.gamesidestory.com/2014/01/27/gametest-zigfrak-pc/

Picked this game up on a whim for $2.49 because I figured, "Why the hell not?" Let me say, I'm so glad I did! The combat is user-controlled and terrific, the equipment altering interface is very simplified yet is made complex by the innumerable additions and expansions found throughout the game. And if you like loot, well, this game has a TON of it. From someone who played Eve Online and found it to be rather droll and nigh impossible to be an effective addition to the world, Zigfrak "scratched that itch" for me in regards to free-roam space exploration games. I also really appreciate the physics of the game and how they are implemented to provide an engaging starfighter experience. Definitely recommend!

The short review is buy the game, the dev is a hobby dev and you'll probably jump in and out of the game every now and then for your monthly Zigfrak fix. Which is good for addicits because something is always coming and everything adapts/levels with you so you'll need to adapt and change. Every battle is different.

I've a guide http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=232839816
I've a letsplay COMING

Though lets just think a minute ...


Do you care about reading dialogue ?
> if yes, Awesome. Buy this game . go explore and kill or whatever you want to do...while thinking about your decisions
> if no , Awesome. Buy this game . go explore and kill or whatever you want to do...while not thinking ... just destorying

Do you think you'd carry around that lvl 3 Quirky SmartAss Missile until your level 15 because it looks cool?
> if yes, heck yeah its awesome.
> if no, hey look, something else thats not just a reskin of other stuff with better stats but, actually a different item.

Have you seen a spaceship shoot homing mines that actually act as mines that act with proximity to targets?
> obviously not, becuase you're currently reading this review and you probably haven't played this game.

Ever wondered what it'd be like to be stealthed in the middle of a Five Faction Battle ?
> You get a stealth cloak in the third major quest.
Ever wondered how much loot that battle results in ?
> Its alot though you'll have grab what you want quick cos there are always scavagers and Enforcers about.

Ever battled your-AI-self?
> you will, it is a random event, one of you will die.
Confused Painful memorys?
> yeah, you've just killed your self, saving your past self from killing your future self. Yay future self.
You woke up?
> yeah, it was all a dream. Look out! Giant space bats are attacking you from the rear.


Been eaten by a god-like entity?
> you can do that, there is an epic 100 - 1 battle.

Ever played poker in-game against mob-bosses for control of sectors as well as cannolle?
> you can do that, watch them though cos Lenny cheats.
> Sammy the Rat is actually a Rat. you'll need to read that document you just received
Don't want to read?
> ♥♥♥♥ it kill them all and earn glory through bloodshed of possible poker cheaters.
Read the document in the end and had a good laugh?
> sadly i got the joke after killing all the mobsters ... [lie] "its in the mail"

Ever played hide and seek with a non-entity-entity?
> you can do that, it is fun.

Amazing totally underrated game. I have completely no experience of playing such galaxy-freeonroam games, but I had a lot of fun.

It includes brilliant OST, pretty good graphics and all that fits in less ~500 MB game size. It takes some time to learn how to play it, but it definitely worth it.

Must have.

Released in late 2012 and just recently on steam comes Zigfrak. With a name seemingly produced by a name generator, Zigfrak is an action RPG set in space. The game drives the player through a single player story but the player is free to roam off the beaten trail to explore or engage in side-quests.

Zigfrak was a game that I wanted to like as I love space exploration action RPGs ever since Escape Velocity. Unfortunately, in my opinion suffers from some key flaws. Playing this game it's fairly obvious that this game borrows alot from MMOs such as World of Warcraft, which is not something I would necessarily want in a single player game. A lot of quests are tedious and uninteresting "go here and click on this" tasks. There's a lot of loot in the game to collect, which might generate some interest and motivation to play, but this mechanic feel a bit cheap. A lot of sidequests are collection questions that just involve collecting a specified amount of items and cashing them in for a reward.

Since this game is inspiried by MMOs I don't think it really respects the player's time; for example at one point the player must battle a spacestation with a friendly fleet. It took me nearly 45 minutes to deplete half of it's health.

Aside from this, the action is fairly average. The weapons don't have a particularly notable feel and I didn't get a sense that I was actually hitting a target. Instead I just held down the attack buttons until I saw the enemy's health bar lower.

To it's merit, when a 'hacking minigame' came up I was given the option to fight enemies instead. I aprpeciated the option to focus on the game's core gameplay instead of getting pulled off into some minigame.

In terms of production value, the graphics aren't anything to write home about and many things in the game simply don't have any sort of sound effect.

There is no USB controller support for this game.

If you like MMOs and space exploration RPGs and you want a single player game you might find this game fun, otherwise there are better options for you. I played this game a little over 3 hours, giving it a chance to get me interested but it failed to really inspire me to play.

Score: 5/10

Imagine the look and feel of Freespace combined with the mechanics of an ARPG and you will have a good idea of what Zigfrak is all about.

Years ago I was the 18th person to purchase the game and now that he has continued to pour a ton of work into the game and its now made it to Steam I hope that many of you purchase this absolutely spectacular game. I look forward to watching Zigfrak evolve more and more and its just going to get better. Congratulations Alex!

The game has extensive options so you can tweak the game to the point where its the best for your PC and there is only one thing that I wish would be added into the game, and that would be the ability to make the ingame text size larger. Its not crippling microfonts like some games but I wish I could bump it up a little. That being said do not let that discourage you from buying the game--the font is clear and not too tiny.

This is a game that you will be able to get MANY hours of enjoyment out of and if you don't purchase it you will be missing out on a great experience. The controls are wonderful and the interface is intuitive.

I've put several hours into the pre-Steam version of the game, and it's a BLAST. Funny, fun to play and very high energy, if you want a fun, ARPG loot chase in space, this is your game. If you want to know more, please check out my review here:

A game this cheap has no business being this good.

Despite an interface which can be a little tricky to learn, this is a solid game experience. Destroyed ships litter space with tons of loot: ammo, guns, vendor trash, crafting components, etc. So much so that it can be a bit overwhelming in the early going. I've only scratched the surface of this one, but it seems surprisingly deep.
