"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!"

Grenade Mods: A Thing You're Getting

Bombs have a sacred place in Zigfrak's history, and are a major part of the game's flavor. There are lots of bombs, used in a variety of ways. From the development side, though, bombs are a very rough concept. What players perceive as "bombs" are produced by an ad-hoc smattering of runtime side-effects. There's a lack of formality to them. I won't be nice to myself here, it's a sloppy implementation.

Some bombs come as payloads, in stacks, dispensing bomb items which must be handled individually. Now you've got a bomb: do you want to jettison it, arm it, disarm it, or give it to an enemy? Some bombs require remote detonators, some have timed fuses. Using payload bombs effectively involves juggling several items in the UI, with an understanding that arming a bomb is even a thing you can do in Zigfrak in the first place. Sometimes bombs take the form of RPGs or Mines, eating up a weapon slot.

And what is Flak? For our purposes here, Flak is a shaped explosive shrapnel charge, detonated towards your enemy at very close range. So effectively, yet another specialized type of bomb. An underdeveloped bomb at that, represented only by a smattering of minimally effective items throughout the game. Sure, it's fun if you know how to play it, and are into "melee" style spaceship combat.

Looking at the pre-BBQ bomb situation, it's a complete clusterfrak. Using payload bombs is incongruous to the rest of gameplay, and it's really hard to justify equipping Flak, RPGs, or Mine weapons in place of a top-end guided missile launcher. We're cleaning it up, and the result is a fun new dimension to combat in Zigfrak. In Backyard BBQ, we'll be unifying Mines, RPGs, Bombs, and Flak into a singularly kick-ass Grenade mechanic. No matter the situation, the play flow for bombs is being collapsed from several convoluted UI interactions into one button. Thousands of Grenade Mods will be available, representing all of your favorite old-school bombs, and more, flavor-blasted.

Grenades will be launched pretty much how you expect, via an alternate fire command, probably taking over the "G" keybinding by default. Grenade deployment will consume a charge from a tightly limited pool of Grenade ammo. The generic Mine and Flak ammo types are to be retired.

More as I know it, thanks for reading!

State of the BBQ

Fellow Pilots,

Here's the latest on Backyard BBQ, Zigfrak's expansion in progress. Since the announcement, we have a much better grasp on the specifics. I am firming up the release date to "when it's ready", but the good news is that there will be two appetizer rounds. The overarching plan calls for two major pre-expansion releases, to get everything nice and ready for the actual expansion content.

Whistle Wettin' Pre-BBQ Feature Release

This release will introduce many expansion features, including skill trees, overhauled ship control, and navigable systems (aka "free roaming"). It will not include expansion content or second playthrough. It's looking good, and I hope to open this up for beta testing soon. Soon-ish-ish.

Hootenanny of a Pre-BBQ Engine Update

We want to stay current with Unity, the engine Zigfrak was built with. There are lots of good reasons to migrate to Unity 5, and we're going to do so before the expansion content drops. This is a pretty boring update on the surface, because the goal is to get the game back into the same playable state it was in for the feature release... but with some very welcome improvements, in areas such as physics performance, sound, and lighting.

Unity 5 raises minimum system requirements, and so finally must we, at the time of this release. I'm not sure of the exact specs, but will make sure this is communicated.

There will be a beta period for the engine update release.

Backyard BBQ

Finally, we're gonna have us a BBQ. This is where the expanded content and reitemized second playthrough will drop. Can't wait! Details are a closely guarded secret; there will be a closed beta prior to this release.

Thanks for reading! I hope to share the feature release with beta testers very soon. All pieces will be delivered when ready, we're cooking it low and slow.

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.

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.

A pretty good indie game,with very active dev(even though this game is seemed left),and possibly future DLC i expect to play again.
Good soundtrack and sense of humor(i.e things like noob tubes).
While story isn't good(you know indie),the other things compensate that.
The demo compared to other demos,is about few hours long.
7/10 because of lacking something,but good anyways.

This game costs the equivalent of 5 USD in this region.

It has combat featuring things flying everywhere, lots of equipment and is set in space.

Yes, it is worth it.

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. ;)
