The demo contains 2 finished levels, and 2 (out of 3) playable characters.

The problems with the Mac and Linux updates have now been resolved, and all three platforms are updated to remove/deprecate the online services. For more information, see the previous update.

Additionally, this update fixes one bug:

== Bugfix ==
[MENU] It was possible to select and click the file select options with the mouse while a confirmation dialog was open.

As mentioned earlier, all of the game's online functionality is now gone or deprecated in favor of using Steam Cloud. But don't worry, your old save data hasn't gone anywhere!

Here's what that means for you:

* When you first load the game, your last-played save file (if any) will automatically be loaded into the first save slot (of 5).
* If you have other online save files, you can press "Import Online Save" to log in to download them to your computer.
* Your save data will be automatically synced via Steam Cloud.
* Your highscores will no longer be uploaded to (and the highscores option on the title screen has been removed).

The online service will continue to be available for the forseeable future, so your old online save data will not be lost.

NOTE: Due to technical issues with the build process, this update has only been released for Windows so far. Mac and Linux will be updated soon.

Full changelog:

== Major ==
[SYSTEM] Using local files and Steam Cloud instead of online save files
[WEBSITE] Online logins are deprecated
[WEBSITE] No longer submitting highscores

== Minor ==
[CUTSCENE] Changed some dialogue in the LVL9 outro cutscene
[LEVEL] Enemies will freeze while you're picking up a collectible item
[MENU] Added Steam achievements for getting a perfect score in each level

== Bugfix ==
[LEVEL] The easter egg in LVL6 would trigger its effect at the start of the level if you triggered it previously

Hey, players! Big changes to come!

As you may have noticed, Ignition has some online integration that allows you to (optionally) register on the game's website to store your save file online and access it anywhere. You may not have noticed that it also submits your highscores (whether you’re logged in or not) to for public viewing too.

Well, that’s going to change soon!

These features were designed way back when Ignition was going to be primarily a browser-based game, so it made sense to add a login so you could access your saves from any computer. But then the browser-based architecture didn’t pan out and the game turned into a desktop app (using the handy NW.js webapp wrapper) on Steam & GameJolt, and that online functionality started making less sense.

Anyway, I have been hard at work redesigning the way save data works so that you won’t need to log in; your progress will be saved on your own computer and synced automatically via Steam cloud (for Steam users) or manually via Dropbox/what-have-you (for GameJolt users).

Don’t worry; long-time users (registered and unregistered) aren’t getting screwed over. You’ll still be able to log into your old account to download your old save files and then keep playing them offline like nothing ever happened.

Until this happens (hopefully this month), feel free to keep playing with or without an online account. I’ll be testing this update thoroughly to ensure nothing is lost in transition.

Thanks for playing!

Hey players, while researching some oddities with gamepads, I stumbled upon this forum post:

In short, if your gamepad is mapping certain buttons to certain actions regardless of your in-game controller configuration (example: A = enter, right stick = mouse, etc), you can disable Steam's default controller mapping.

To quote the thread linked above: "Steam>Settings>Controller>General Controller Settings. Uncheck all the boxes."

I hope this helps! If it doesn't, let me know and I will keep digging.

Thanks for playing,

Hey there, players! Today, I’d like to share some exciting news: Crucible, the sequel to Ignition, is now in development!

Crucible will offer more of the merciless, violent platforming gameplay you’ve come to expect from Carnage in Space, but that’s not all! In addition, it will feature multiple playable heroes, more customization, a deeper story with more side-content, and a whole lot more.

Be sure to check out Crucible on its new GameJolt page here!

I intend to release the first demo sometime in late 2018. Until then, I’ll be sure to keep you all posted on the devlog, so don’t forget to follow for updates!

Aaand one more thing. For the next week, Ignition is on sale for 25% off!

Well, that was an adventure. Something must have changed with Steam's HTTP upload, because the Mac version had some aliases get broken during the upload. With some help, I managed to upload the Mac version the *right* way, so the game made it up in one piece.

Long story short, the Mac is Bac! Again.

Is your copy of Carnage in Space: Ignition failing to start on macOS? If it is, please take a screenshot of the error message that appears and send it in an email to, and I'll make sure your problem is addressed ASAP.

In the meantime, I'll be doing everything I can to get the problem solved for everyone.

Thanks for your patience.

[UPDATE] The Mac version has been fixed.

First off, the bad news. Although if you're not a Mac user, you can just skip this paragraph. In the middle of this update, the Mac build somehow got broken and the game won't start anymore. Reverting to the previous version didn't help. I hope to get the problem solved within the coming week. Thanks for your patience!

... Okay, now time for the GOOD news. In response to a recent piece of feedback, I tested the drop rates for money and decided that could stand to be buffed a bit. What's that? You say the average player doesn't want to play this game for as long as I playested it? Fancy that.

Anyway! You will now get:
* More frequent cash drops in all difficulties
* WAY more frequent cash drops in INSANE mode
* Slightly higher level bonuses for perfect scores
* Considerably higher level bonuses for imperfect scores
