"A good way to waste an afternoon, this single-player MMO-like ARPG flows easily, but is complicated enough to be interesting. Also, it's a good price!"

Backyard BBQ Talent Preview

/throws down hammer, for no reason.

Backyard BBQ's talents are 100% feature complete, and apparently working (cross your toes.) There is undoubtedly some balancing and tweakage much later down the road-- especially once players start kicking the tires, but for now, I'm calling this a major milestone. There are just a few more gaps to fill in before releasing a test candidate for those who have opted in for beta releases. Best case is a few weeks out. Worst case is heat death of universe. So close.

As a reminder, we're doing a feature release first (just features, no major content changes.) A public test build for the feature release is what's close. An engine update will follow, and finally, the expansion content will hit. These are further out. I don't mean to sell the feature release short, though, this bugger is huge.

A full writeup of all the available talents is now available here:

There are a great number of cherry picked dev screenshots on the @zigfrak twitter feed, check them out and give us a follow!

Thank you for flying with Zigfrak. We know you have your choice of space games to fly with, and your decision to fly with Zigfrak brings us a warm fuzzy every time. Also, radiation sickness.

  • Expansive open environment
  • Fun, variable gameplay

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 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.

Really enjoyed this game's background, and free flow nature so far, and map zooming. Make sure to put away 30 minutes to an hour everytime you play because you will need to read through lots of controls, and storylines at least in the begining so far. Has kinda cool steam trading cards with descriptions of planets, and lots to explore. Massive amounts of in game tags on what ships, and planets are that you can zoom around, and really get a feel for how massive the enviroment is. You can warp around and have epic fighter pilot battles everywhere with all kinds of cool special effects i was impressed by for thinking i was buying a low end budget game.

There's just so much awesome packed into this hidden gem. Others summarized this games strengths better than I could but I do have to remark on another reviewers negative remarks. If its taking you 45 minutes to defeat an enemy, get better guns. Loot is everywhere! Stop trying to do a mission that you obviously aren't ready for. The open nature of this game allows you to prepare for more difficult missions. This game is really fun and I've enjoyed every moment of it!

Want to blow things up?

Want to blow things up for profit, mission completion, and loot?
Want to blow things up for profit, mission completion, and loot IN SPACE!?

I LOVE BLOWING THINGS UP IN SPACE FOR LOOT AND PROFIT!

Alex Ayers and the crew over at Entheogen have made a great flight sim that works with both mouse and keyboard (personally I use a Nostromo N52, Mouse, and Voice Attack software), and uses slightly modified WASD controls. With the way loot drops, the variety of loot, and the humor in the references (albeit sans speech), it is a lot like Borderlands 2 in space. If you know me - or even if you don't - you will know that I love Borderlands 2 (as evidenced by my 1000+ hours gameplay), and I love this game almost as much in just a few short hours. :D

Does it have problems? Yes, but generally they are minor and do not effect gameplay. Such as accidentally moving a toolbar icon and not knowing where it is stored (there is no ability to lock the toolbar), the huge but unsortable inventory, or flying through another ship. These minor problems are overshadowed by:

- the sheer joy of blowing enemies to bits using one of the hundreds of weapons,
- watching enemies explode - as the game description says - like loot piñatas,
- a not uninteresting story mode,
- very cool original music
- an RPG element including crafting and gathering (skill trees are coming in a future update),
- a large and easy to use DB on the Zigfrak.com site that lists ALL THE THINGS,
- and an awesome price (IT'S ONLY $5 USD!).

Any major problems are often quickly and directly addressed by the developers (as evidenced on their forums), and the forums - both here and on the Zigfrak site - are full of people that are knowledgeable, and information that is helpful.

My only hope is that one day we get co-op. ;)

In short, if you like flight sims or space, and FPS, then this is going to be a fun investment for you. It will provide several hours of fun and explosions, and that is just in the FREE DEMO. ;)

"A shoot-and-loot action RPG in space!"
Well, honestly, it is not as much RPG as I hoped. And certainly, that's not an Elite. You fly in space, that's for sure. And there could be a lot of shooting and yeah, looting. Problem is, the thing you're flying on, it's like smoothing-iron. A drag.
And space... well, that's a thing where you can easily be lost. In a bad way.
Being a fan of indie projects, I admire Zigfrak. I see very much effort a single man put in this game. And being a fan of open-worlds and RPG... I'm scared and depressed. Space. Such a lonely place. I will tell my kids, that being an astronaut is not such a good idea. I'd better encourage them to become firefighters.

Pros:
Space - check, many of loot - check, crafting - check, shooting - check. In short, that game does everything it promises. And the game is still updating! The developer is adding new stuff now and then, fixing some issues. Cool man!

Contra:
Controls are not perfect, but acceptable. But the fact you need to control that Thing which is called spaceship here... makes me wish to return to Darkstar. And to bring flowers on the memorial of Yuri Gagarin.
Also, I repeat, space is just a vacuum, there is no life in there. And even with all abilities and challenges that game gives you... You'll probably be bored and distracted very soon.
Well, maybe not. I'm just not a space sim guy, so I'm pretty biased here.

Give it a shot, if you do not afraid a slow flight in the emptyness between stars. My score is 6.7/10.
