The Itempocalypse has arrived, bringing a plethora of new loot and many overhauled game mechanics.
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.

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!

when something explodes nearby in 3rd person view, it feels detached. in pilot view, it's: "holy crap, that was right outside my window!"

understand the appeal of pilot view (that's what we're calling it) now. adds a real sense of presence which is hard to put in words.
