2017.11.26 Boss 101 Team News and More!

Hello everyone and welcome to the latest Boss 101 Update

Today’s Topics:
– News from the Team
– Videos for you!

News from the Team

We’ve been busy working on some new items in preparation for an announcement we expect to be giving you in the coming weeks. Perhaps even a COUPLE of announcements! This is Boss 101 related stuff folks so it won’t be long till you know!

We’ve also been playtesting and looking for bugs in the game. There’s a planned patch with a few quality of life upgrades and also an asset update which I want to talk about for a moment.

Boss 101 has a LOT of animation assets, close to 4000 if you can believe it. Most of those are Spine .json files. So you might imagine that we have TONS of files across almost four years of development in various versions of Spine. We recently did a huge sweep to update these files and bring them all up to a recent uniform format.

The idea here is we are now in a MUCH better position to fix any problems and also bring Boss 101 to other platforms. Great news for us and great news for you! As a reference we have some files that were about three years old banging around in Boss 101. Most of these were old core systems like the Make a Boss and parts of the UI. The rest were things like environmental art and some super old cinematic assets.

We expect to push this update out soon but first we will be testing to make sure everything works well!

2017.11.18 Reviews and more for Boss 101

Welcome back to the latest Boss 101 update!

We are still going strong folks and bringing you the latest magic.

We’re a little over two weeks into our Steam release! We have a solid set of positive reviews there and people seem to be enjoying the game. If you haven’t already we recommend you check out the latest and greatest. We have been working to clean up little bugs and issues we and our fans have found. Minor stuff to be sure but all good quality of life improvements.

Upcoming Announcements

Apologies in advance for being coy but we expect to be having some exciting news for you in the coming weeks. While we can’t speak specifically to the announcement at the time sine things are still in motion, we are happy about what’s coming and expect you will be also. Trust us – we’ll be keeping you posted.

Man, look at some of these leaderboard scores on the arcade machine! A few of you are pretty freaking good at our games. Maybe we have to drop back in there and see if we can pass you up. Though looking at the high scores, I don’t think it would be easy to beat any of those!

We have some reviews from friends and fans to share too! A video review and a writeup!

First up is Daniel Weissenberger reviewing Boss 101 for Game Critics. Let’s be frank – Daniel gets it and his review is a great look at our game!

Next up is a video look at Boss 101 from Chef Fitaurus. He also really gets the game! One thing we wanted to add here is we added in difficulty settings around the time he posted his review so just remember you CAN adjust Boss 101 to be harder or easier if you like. It’s really up to you!

Video

Ok folks – we have more coming and thank you for all the support. Expect some news from us soon and remember to always – LIVE YOUR DREAMS!
