Zigfrak is a space-based action RPG, featuring missions, exploration, and crafting. With an emphasis on loot and over-the-top items, it’s not a traditional space sim. Enemy ships explode like loot piñatas, spewing forth useful pickups.

The game employs subtle humor to poke light at a dark situation -- a human civil war on a galactic scale, complicated by the invasion of technologically superior aliens. During the campaign, players encounter clues and artifacts which could reveal ancient secrets of humanity.

I don't always post news on Desura, but when I do, it's because I really mean it.

It's been almost a year since Zigfrak was officially released, and we're pushing hard through the top 100 on Steam Greenlight. Your vote counts, and would really help!

We're Greenlit, and heading to Steam! Huge thank you to Zigfrak fans on IndieDB and Desura!

To help with this push, we're participating in Build a Greenlight Bundle 4 over at Groupees. Pay what you want, help a swathe of promising games get greenlit, support charity, and also you get games. Yes? Choose Zigfrak as part of the bundle, and you'll get a key which can be redeemed here on Desura.

Thanks for your support!

If you bought the game here, a Steam code should now be available on your collection page.

I went through comments and didn't find a comment that talks about this, but I've purchased the game on Steam and am running on 64-bit Linux (thanks for the Linux support!), and I have a small problem. When using the mouse to look around, the mouse pointer is not frozen, so that if you hit the edge of the display, you can no longer look in that direction. I've tried on various display modes and haven't found one that's stopped the mouse while looking around. Is this a known issue, and is there a workaround?

Checked main forums and learned that it's known to be finicky with Linux. I will note that I'm using a tiling window manager (hlwm), which might be the cause for these issues. Unlike that thread though, everything does work for me, just that the mouse doesn't get frozen. I'll see if I can find a workaround.

Hey there,

Confirmed -- we had to disable cursor locking in Linux, because it causes bizarre behavior when reading the input values. We'll see if this has been fixed in the latest Unity3D, and ping their support again if needed.

Great new approach to space shooters. Open world (ilovit), crafting, docking spacecrafts and looting. Boobietrapped loot. This programmer makes you crave for more! Keep on the great work. Cudos!
