HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!

Thank you for joining us here again in the new year – THE YEAR OF BOSS 101! Yes folks, we intend to get Boss 101 in your hands as soon as possible THIS VERY YEAR! 

Boss 101 not only will have the action on high but there will be the HUMAN element. We are telling you the story of two buddies who not only come together to save the galaxy but who also learn a lot about friends, family and how much they mean. 

YOU will be part of that family. You get the experience this from the ground floor up. We put you in their life and you can walk the walk. We always say to live your dreams and it may be a corny line but it’s the truest one we can think of. It means to reach for your dreams, work on on your dreams and then make them real. The point is the EFFORT you put into something determines the worth. We’re putting everything we can into Boss 101 and leaving nothing on the table.

One nice thing is YOU directly benefit. You get our best! OUR VERY BEST! 

Ok – onto the update and a new announcement about the coming plans as we head closer to the release.

We already spoke with BERL and we also gave him a new position at the Donley Time Foundation. He’s our inteocution Ambassor for the video series we will be presenting to you. We are going to be making short lips with BERL to highlight parts of the game and give you a clear understanding of the landscape you will be playing in.

Like in the December Gameplay video – we will have BERL ‘host’ the videos and tell you what he knows about the various systems. Of course BERL may be a LITTLE rusty about some of the places in the Command Center but he’s REALLY good at improvisation!

Some topics BERL will cover:

Topic: The weapons and guns in Boss 101

Hello and welcome to the end of the year Boss 101 update!

Happy Holidays and thank you for your support!

>>>DIRECT LINK to Boss 101 December 2016 Gameplay Video on YouTube<<<

As we head into 2017 we want to thank you SO MUCH for the support you have given us over the last 2 plus years. We have been working to bring you our best and that has meant some delays but overall we feel it has been for the better. The new video is out, we are wrapping up the game and polishing and best of all you will be able to play Boss 101 soon for your self.

We always recommend you live your dreams. Boss 101 is no exception to that thought. We have been living our dreams for nearly three years and with the release on Boss 101 we are hoping that YOUR KINDNESS AND GENEROSITY will help us continue that dream. We made this game for YOU, we made this game for US. Most of all we made Boss 101 to entertain.

Upcoming videos

Starting in January we will be doing a series of videos (ideally weekly) to highlight some of the main features of Boss 101 you might be interested in. Things like the various stores in the game, upgrades and weapons. These will be short animated looks with BERL as your guide. If you are wondering how things look in action then get ready to see a LOT MORE of Boss 101 in action. 

Some progress from the last year

Welcome back and GOOD NEWS EVERYONE! The new gameplay video for Boss 101 is here!

Boss 101 December 2016 Gameplay Trailer

Let’s get straight to the good stuff shall we. This is the culmination of nearly three years of development efforts and we still can only show you a FRACTION of the game you will get. Check out the trailer here:

>>>DIRECT LINK to Boss 101 December 2016 Gameplay Video on YouTube<<<

Boss 101 Steam Store Page - please wishlist us!
Release Date: Early 2017
Price: $9.99 (look how much YOU get for UNDER TEN BUCKS!)

What you are seeing is a broad look at many of the gameplay systems you will be dealing with in Boss 101. Not only do we have a fun story about friends and adventure but we put in a cool system to battle with robot baddies. You have hats, guns and abilities to upgrade and take into battle but the CRAZY PART is you can ROLL YOUR OWN BOSS. Sure, make who you want but then you will have to match him against your own abilities. Bosses are tough so plan carefully. You might get a boss that is strong against, say, a fire attack so you will want to avoid bringing your flamethrower. Basically, you will have to do a little research to bring YOUR best into the battle. Better battles mean more money for upgrades. Find more people and bring more friends back to the Command Center! EVERYONE WINS WITH MORE FRIENDS!!

Here are some stills from the video for your viewing enjoyment. Notice that BERL helps walk you through some of the more complicated moments.

More Videos on the way

We have a series of deep dive videos planned as we head towards release. Starting in the New Year we would like to highlight various aspects of the game and give you a better look at the systems and sections of the game. Things like stores, upgrades, characters, even PETS! Stay tuned for more as we head forward.

What’s Left in Development

As we mentioned – it’s all about polish and cleanup. Nothing too surprising but we want to bring you the very best we can. Because of this we are making sure things are nice and tidy and play well for you. Believe us, NO ONE wants the game done more than us. We want to see Boss 101 in your hands and you happy about the final product! 

Happy Holidays to you, your family and friends!

OK – huge update and please enjoy the video. It was the true product of blood, sweat and tears and we did it not only for ourselves but we did it to bring YOU the Boss 101 experience. Hang around, wish list us on Steam if you would and we will keep counting down to the release date. 

Always remember to LIVE YOUR DREAMS!

Boss 101 Gameplay Video Coming This Weekend! 


Guess what folks? We have crafted a new gameplay video intended to give you the best look yet at the gameplay and adventure you can expect in Boss 101. Look for it in this weekend's update! 

Remember to live your dreams! 

-Tim



Welcome to the Boss 101 update and thank you for joining us again!

ROB’s Room is watching out for you


We wanted you to know you are safe when you are running around the Command Center. ROB has dropped in a bunch of safety monitors in all the public rooms and entrances. This is to ensure YOU are safe and sound from a base invasion.

4813331_148139045192_MlV3dHq.gif

You can see some of the cameras here. Are there more? Maybe, maybe not. We can’t show you all the secrets just yet! HAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!

Sample of a camera

Hat Room Surveillance

Upgrade Room Surveillance

Another location off the beaten path


4813331_148139045053_mYUUssF.gif

See – you’re safe and sound in the Command Center. The Professor and ROB are keeping the area scanned and safe.

Edge of Screen Warnings

You know we have a few bosses that can toss stuff from off screen. Well, we are in the process of tuning your in-game early warning system. Check this out. 

Sample 1

4813331_148139044943_McLmtPM.gif

We created a warning symbol to alert you to the dangers from a sneaky boss. Here’s a pass of the alert system complete with a laughing skull. 

Sample 2

Happy Holidays for 2016 and beyond

OK – you have been hanging in there with us for nearly 3 years. We appreciate it and we appreciate you coming here to check out the updates as we have been making Boss 101. The plan going forward is just bug fixing and polish. We have a short break planned at the end of the year for a rest and family time but expect updates regardless.

Thank you again and keep checking back. Boss 101 will be in your hands sooner than you think!

Remember to LIVE YOUR DREAMS!

Welcome back to the Boss 101 Update

Let’s check out what is on the menu today shall we?

End of Round Awesomeness

So when you win a round in Boss 101 we want it to be awesome. Awesome being defined as rewarding and fulfilling. You just completed a round against a tough boss and here you are at the end to collect cash, awards and other bonuses – why not make that as cool and fun as possible, right?!?! YAY!

So check out some of these images here showing the various moments you can have at the end of the round. 

In this image we see a still from a time out screen. In this round you are getting a sense of the whole layout and placement of the panels. 

4813331_148078496571_ftoSoTK.png

With this in mind let’s look at panels in motion. Here we have the beginning of the transition. This is a closeup of the main panel right at the end of the round.

4813331_148078496492_eyVznuO.gif

The thinking here is we start things with a bang. Some dynamic movement to announce where you are and what you have done. We bring in the round name, the medals for the boss killed and show you your basic rewards.

Award Time

4813331_148078496482_uShFyoQ.gif

The same kind of stuff is going on when you receive a medal. Bring ‘em up and slap ‘em down. We set it up so you can speed through ALL of these processes and still see the basic cool stuff. We know you will be seeing this panel a lot so we want to keep it exciting all the time.

Cash Money

4813331_148078496311_xhJWryv.gif

When the awards are done it’s time for a cash deposit. Check out the ridic loot drop! (yah, maybe that could use a slight tune…. HAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!)

Fireworks too!

4813331_148078496293_bwFkrQh.gif

Of course who doesn’t like FIREWORKS. You can start aiming and letting off bottle rockets just to celebrate having a fun time. Why? Because WE LIKE YOU that’s why!

Come on now – that’s what an end of round celebration should be. Fireworks, awards and CASH!

Lightning Gun

Here are a couple tunes for the lightning gun.

Checking out the moves and how the lightning flows against a single target

Trying out the jumping from multiple targets.


4813331_148078496143_dsSj1Ou.gif

Ok folks – we’re hoping you enjoy these looks and thank you for the emails and comments. It really means a lot. We’re cutting a new video to showcase the game and bring you the latest look. YES!!

Remember to always and everyday – LIVE YOUR DREAMS!
