It seems the expansion pack is the big surprise from bitsummit. It may also appear that all expansion content will be included in the Exa version as well with more exclusive features yet to be announced.

https://youtu.be/T7V4UBgELkA

Very little chance the exclusive feature would be 2 player due to differing powerup systems and Sinnoc is not planning for 2P co-op on record due to single-player design

Any one got any tips on beating him no miss?

Get in close when he does the ground slams and don't be afraid to burst.

And the red icons are just bonus points, don't worry about them too much.


Thank you so much for the reply .

I am so excited for the expansion .
I just want some loud juicy sounds when you use bombs with the red ship and i will be a happy camper.

Offical trailer link here.

Here's the press blurb, to go along with the trailer
Quote:
- 6 new stages, doubling the size of the game
- New arranged soundtrack by a variety of veteran composers, such as Shinji Hosoe (Street Fighter EX), Saitama Saisyu Heiki (Koihime Enbu) and Loser Kashiwagi (CHO REN SHA 68K)
- Fan favorite secret ship "Scathach" is now available from the start
- All new ship "Boudicca", exclusive to Ignition
- New unlockable shaders and features to customize your game
- A new announcer powered by Vocaloid technology


There'll be more footage, details and another nice surprise coming out of Bitsummit proper. Please wait warmly.

Surprise! The demo's been in the game the whole time!

You can play (mostly) the same demo that's at Bitsummit RIGHT NOW from home!

Looking pretty s1ck ngl. Awesome work Sinoc, you and the musicians really have a knack for this. Much more so than other western developers, if I'm being brutally honest.

Demo is pretty slick, love the new enemies and bullet types. Question on the original game regarding credits, is there a limit on how many you can unlock? I kept getting an extra credit while playing until recently when they just stopped coming. Even reached stage 5 for the first time today and there was no extra credit awarded. This game is great fun but the difficulty really gets me sometimes to the point where I won't play it for weeks since I'm sick of running out of credits at the same point over and over again :mrgreen:

It stops at 8 for a bit until you get 99 (effectively freeplay).
It's based on lifetime score earned, so I guess you happened to fall right into the thresholds perfectly.

Hello,

I just come here to say thanks. The game feels great. By looking at the leaderboards, we can safely say that very few people are giving the game a chance.

The VAST majority of the sales are on Switch, so the Steam leaderboards are painting a much smaller picture than the actual numbers.

Two questions: How many hours do I spend to unlock an extra continue, and eventually, unlimited? And when is Devil Engine Ignition coming out? I heard something about Winter 2019, but not much else...

1. Certain score thresholds unlock stuff, not time. (Thought theoretically you could just grind stage 1 over time to unlock everything)
2. The game's done, we're doing final logistical stuff now.

Edit; Forgot to mention we're showing off the arranged soundtrack and other new stuff at Tokyo Game Show, so watch the Twitter over the next couple days.
Spoiler: show
Not sure how I forgot; I've been packing for Japan all day

I'm just curious as to what the Ignition pack will bring, considering I just beat the game recently...

Doesn't sound like a good situation with the publisher:

What the hell's going on with them now? And what's going to happen with Devil Engine Ignition?

I'm sure Nicalis will pick it up if Dangen ceases to be an option.

Seems hard for indies to find a decent publisher. :(

That was the joke.

Hope things will turn out better for the Devil Engine team as well as for the other indie devs now that all that crazy stuff is public.
The information provided in the article paint a very harsh situation for them, and the level of incompetence displayed by the publisher seems to be too much to chalk it up to some simple one-time human errors.

Damn. With things like this going on it seems very unlikely that Devil Engine Ignition will be released before the end of the year. It better come out sometime next year, then.

This is just an awful situation for this developer to be in. I do also hope the Ignition expansion is released but I completely understand if they are hesitant to release it with the same publisher. I'd be happy to contribute something to a gofundme or patreon if it would help the developer release Ignition independently.

That's so sad. Devil Engine is a game I've watching out for on GOG or a physical PS4 copy. Now I know why it's been held up. I can only imagine the pain and anger of the developers. Heartbreaking stuff.

Oh wow. That has put me right off buying Ikaruga physically.

The Kotaku article doesn't even mention how they basically stole Cave Story from Pixel.

Kero Blaster is a game about a character that works himself to death for a boss he can't understand because they speak a different language.

I got a rumor from a discord server, covering arcade games that the Exa Arcadia version is cancelled, and it has to be due to a bad situation with Dangen Entertainment. We will have to wait until some developers behind Devil Engine clear up any confusion or dispel rumors. I wish the best for Sinoc and others to recover themselves.

I don't get it, if Ignition is already complete to begin with, why not just release it right away? Why do we have to wait a little while longer because of whatever's going on with them?

If you made a game and the people handling the release of the game weren't paying you, would you want to give them more content to sell?

I think it's pretty safe to assume Devil Engine won't be releasing on exA.
It's fairly unrelated to the Dangen thing.

Just wanna try Ignition already... I already played the original game some time ago, but I've been waiting for Ignition.
