Since releasing on GameJolt, Ignition has got a lot more players! Rejoice! And with that new batch of players, I’ve got a new handful of player feedback! And that’s what this update is about. Well, that and the login menus.
The Login, New Save, and Select Profile menus have all been redesigned to be cleaner, visually more in line with the rest of the game’s menus, and more keyboard-friendly. Now you don’t have to use the mouse to get into the game before you start playing with the keyboard!
I’ve made a few tweaks/bugfixes in response to things that some new players have complained about:
- You can now hold the jump button to jump higher (or tap for a short jump) while wall-jumping or double-jumping, just like you already could when jumping from the ground.
- The mouse cursor will appear as soon as you move the mouse, regardless of whether or not there’s a menu you can click on.
- Dying while fighting the LVL7 boss would not make its spawned mooks go away when you continue.
Boss rush is nearly done! I just need to make some cutscenes and one new attack for a boss before I can get it out the door. I can’t wait!
Until next time,
