Also – we have had some requests about holdover hats from the Boss 101 web game. Yep, we do indeed have some returning lids. Here’s a letter from a concerned fan…

“When are you going to show that sweet Calibretto hat?” J. Madureira. Welp, Mister Madureira, check THESE OUT!

A full Calibretto Suit! Can’t go wrong with that!!!

2014.09.26 Boss 101 - Bosses die, STEVE and Max TALK!

2014-09-27 06:23:35 by DarkTimmy
Updated

HELLO ONE and ALL! Let’s talk about Boss 101 shall we?

First - we did a little site revamp at www.donleytimefoundation.com we added in the Disqus commenting system and cleaned things up a bit overall. Mostly, we wanted the place in order for YOU to enjoy it more!

Second – One thing we are making sure to have in this game is the dialog interaction we know you love so! To that, end this update is about some of the ways we’re bringing as much to you as possible in Boss 101.

There is a LOT of feedback from STEVE, Max and even ROB (from Cosmic Clicks). Not only that but the bosses are more than likely to give you some sass when you start and end the rounds. In an earlier update we had a look at the Make a Boss and saw STEVE and Max tend to weigh in pretty critically on the boss rolls. Well, that happens during the rounds too and you never know when they might pipe in about how you’re playing or how they’re feeling.

Now what happens, you might ask, when the boss gets creamed? Well, he does what most other dying creatures do. He lets out a death wail. Not your normal groan or scream. Naw, he’s going to be WAY more colorful than that. Below is just ONE example of what he can do AND a little message from STEVE and Max about it!

Like seeing them STEVE and Max? Let us know and they’ll be back! In fact, DON’T LET US KNOW and THEY WILL STILL BE BACK! HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!

Alright talk with you soon and LIVE YOUR DREAMS!

Talk with you soon!

Welcome back one and all!

So here we are halfway through September and Boss 101 has been jamming along nicely. Check out the SPIFF shot of the Intro Screen below!

Ok – now that you checked that out let’s talk a little about the project shall we?

Core Engine Tech - Well in place as we speak. Most of the upcoming work is (thankfully) related to polish and testing what we already have versus outright creating stuff from scratch. I can't say we are TOTALLY in the clear but I DO feel very good about what I see coming. 

Gameplay - this is always being tested and refined. The general motto is "if it's fun, it stays". That was the way the web version of Boss 101 was created and that’s the way the PC/Console version is scoped out. It's REALLY important to make sure YOU enjoy the game. We want you to have fun while blasting bosses as well as have fun hanging out in the Command Center while S.T.E.V.E. and Max chatter away (and also get a visit or three from R.O.B.)

Game modes – there are a few new game modes for Boss 101 over the old Web version. They are intended to give YOU something new and fresh. We’ll introduce them over the next few months but I think can I drop a HINT at one of them. Three words - “ENDLESS BOSS MODE”! How’s THAT SOUND!?!?

Weapons – We spoke about this one before but there are a LOT more weapons in this version. You’re looking at 40 plus weapons and if you add in the properties you get from hats and upgrades that number shoots WAY UP. Again – this is all about giving you a tailor made experience and making Boss 101 YOUR GAME!

Levels – that is the topic of the moment in the Donley Time Foundation Labs. We’re cranking on NEW worlds and NEW adventures for YOU to see and explore. You’re not just chugging around Earth anymore – you’re hopping all over the galaxy looking for Boss 101.

I want to take a moment to also THANK YOU and our other friends and family we’ve made. We appreciate you checking out the blogs and new updates. We’re putting together more news than ever before because we want you to know about the state of the union and be as excited as we are. This game is FUN and we are having a blast making it. We are also HYPED to get it to YOU so you can enjoy it too.

As always – if you have any comments or questions – drop us a line here or at hello @ donleytimefoundation . com (remove spaces)

Best,

-Tim

Hey all,

One of the great things about living in Austin is being close to awesome developers. Last nigh I dropped by a friend of mine named Matt Fitzgerald who’s working on the crackin’ game Savage: The Shard of Gosen. If you don’t know what that is you can check out his already funded Kickstarter campaign here or his already Greenlit game here on Steam.

Here’s the deal – the guy is single handedly making some SERIOUS MAGIC. He’s not only learned to code the dad-burned thing but he’s doing all the art, interfaces, design and gameplay. I saw a small sample of the latest and it looks FANTASTIC and light years ahead of the Kickstarter video which was already really good.

My point here is he’s onto something special and he’s making it with care and attention to detail. THAT IS INSPIRATIONAL MY FRIENDS! I have to say he’s a big influence on making sure Boss 101 has as much love as possible so YOU GET THE BEST GAME. When you always do your best you won’t have to make any excuses.

Follow your dreams folks – there’s not enough time for anything else.

YES!!!!

2014.09.08 Boss 101 Journal

2014-09-08 18:39:35 by DarkTimmy

Hello and welcome to the Boss 101 journal where we blather about all things Bossy Boss!

This week is about the general question “What is Boss 101 – THE SEQUEL?”. The short answer is “a really fun game you will SURELY love”. The longer version is “A full upgrade of everything you loved about the Boss 101 web game and then some more AWESOME STUFF YOU’LL LOVE EVEN MORE!”. Didn’t play Boss 101 – THAT’S OK!

What is all this “stuff” that is better? Let’s go over some of it, shall we?

More Bosses – this time around the Make-A-Boss generator (that YOU control) will have MORE boss parts than ever before. You’re likely going to face a new variation each time you play the game THE FIRST TEN MILLION TIMES! HAHAHAHAHA HAAAAAAAAAAAA

More weapons – not only do the bosses have more varied weapons but YOU have way more weapons at your disposal as well as upgrades to weapons. Your guns include pistols, shotguns, flamethrower, lightning guns, plasma cannons, multishots, lasers and more!

More types of missions – WE HEARD YOU! You wanted more variety, you got it! More types of missions are happening!

Achievements and rewards – do something special and win a medal. Do something awesome and win a PRIZE, maybe a new gun, maybe a new HAT, maybe MORE!

HATS!!! – Everyone loves hats! We have WAY more hats in this one – MORE THAN DOUBLE. They have special properties when you wear them. Some give you more health, others might give you more shot power or bestow immunities! Some make you look SPIFFY – just like in real life!

The Command Center – your base of operations is super sweet! We upgraded everything about the old game’s Command Center. Now you reside in a multi-level super base! It has stores, a super dope galactic map room and lots more.

OK – that may have been TOO MUCH INFORMATION for you. We’re gonna reel it back in now.

More magical updates coming soon!

-Tim

A new Screenshot FOR YOU!

Allrighty then!

It may seem like time has elapsed on your end but I assure you at the Donley Time Foundation  TIME IS NOT WASTED! You heard right, we are tirelessly working our collective rear ends off to bring you more behind the scenes action with the Boss 101 sequel. 

Ladies and Gentlemen, presenting the NEW Boss 101 Haberdashery!!!

Today’s focus is not only a look at the new Hat Store but a peek at the re-vamped Command Center. Remember the little room in Boss 101’s web game? Well, STEVE and Max have expanded it into a multilevel extravaganza with shops and launch decks. We’ll show you more in the next month or so but check out this sweet screenie below now.

WAY BETTER HATS with WAY better abilities ALL FOR YOU!
