Game Development: Boss 101 Three Years of Progress


Welcome to the latest Boss 101 update and we have something super special for all you longtime blog readers. We opened up the WAY BACK MACHINE on a nearly three year old Boss 101 build and ran some comparisons to the latest and greatest.

First off – you gotta know by now we are serious about bringing you our very best. We put a lot of love into Boss 101 – making the world, the gameplay, heck, EVERYTHING as special as we can. When you put down your hard earned cash you will be getting a lot of TLC and ideally a really fun game to boot.

With that said let’s look at a build from nearly THREE YEARS ago against one from yesterday.

2014 The Intro Screen
Holy hell – this one looks a little bit different right? Look at the moon!!! Not even busted! The inside of the Command Center looks like a college dorm right before move in.

2017 The Intro Screen
MUCH better – look at this place! So much more going on and so many things happening. Room has way more life and the place has a lot more interest for you and a much better sense of the place you are in.

2014 Command Center Levels
Man, this was way, way back in the day. Look at the old version of the stores. The HAT STORE used to be a closet.

2017 Command Center Levels
Much better. Look at how the gophers make it all more interesting when they moved in and helped you with the tech.

2014 Map Room
Well, you can’t fault us for the ambition of the one. One thing though was the early room had the ideas but not the execution. We even had stars to rate levels!

2017 Map Room
Look at all the goodies in here. We have guides, medals and gophers working the area. Also you can see the progress of the gopher space station as the game progresses.

2014 Make A Boss Room
Yep, this is where it all started. Hard to believe but the basics and the BOSSES were done (at least art-wise)

2017 Make A Boss Room
This is the super sweet latest version. It’s got the commentary – the boss abilities, the new equip panel. YEAH BUDDY!

2014 Gameplay
Wow – we use to have the dialog box at the top of the screen and kinda janky too.

2017 Gameplay
So yeah, this got a lot better – just look at the intro section. More dynamic and the interface slides into view.

Ok – just look at all the work that has happened and we are in the final stretch. We HOPE HOPE HOPE you are as excited about Boss 101 as we are. We do appreciate the support and as always…

Hello and thank you for stopping by!

This is Tim and have been making games for a long time. I'm working on a new one called Boss 101 and I am lucky enough to have some amazing people working with me. Boss 101 is the product of a ton love, dedication and passion. I know that gets said about a lot of games but we are putting in the time to make things the best we can. In the end our games are YOUR games.

I'd love to give back to the game community since it has given me so, so much. Please feel free to message or contact me with any questions you might have, not just about my games but about anything you think I might help you with. I would love to hear from you!
