Description

"Blazing Legion: Ignition" is an introspective, character driven, tactical first person bullet-hell about mecha and the consequences of becoming who you have to be. Following the exploits of top-gun ex-Legionairre pilot Vana during a bloody siege, players play the key role in the beginning of a radical populist movement, while reliving Vana's formative memories. Who are you really? Who will you become? What will you leave behind? Suit up, and get in the mech; the revolution needs you.

History

Blazing Legion: Ignition began as a jam game lead developer Ethan Redd and audio lead Steven Lukens created for fun on random weekend. Ethan had already been developing a world for a then undefined title, and when the prototype showed promise the two ideas were a natural fit for one another. In development since Q2 2016, the game has gone through many iterations before finding its voice; the initial prototype was demoed at E3 for itch.io's showcase of Ethan's work, along with select other titles and experiments.

Features

  • Experience high-octane, split-second tactical combat-chess gameplay both in the air and on the ground with Blazing Legion's innovative all-range controls
  • Dive into a rich, bold world inspired by early 3D aesthetics, classic action flim, and '80s-'90s anime, beautifully rendered in Ethan Redd's signature lo-fi style.
  • All-new original soundtrack composed and performed by audio production duo SKYBRIDGE
  • Immerse yourself in the drama of a galaxy on the brink of history, a people striving for change, and a woman dying to live.
