Game Development: Mini Quest Achievements


Hello and welcome to the Boss 101 weekly update!

We have something to talk about we all love! ACHIEVEMENTS! You love to get them and we love to give you achievements for YOUR HARD WORK IN BOSS 101!

You know your pals here working on Boss 101 made sure you have cool Steam Achievements (which will translate to console achievements when the time comes). Did you also know we have in game quests which have their own achievements and rewards? Some of these dovetail with the main game achievements but some are simple as collecting a new pet. You know what? We want to celebrate EVEN THOSE!

Mini Quests and Achievements
We created these little popup to tell you about adopting a new pet in the Command Center or maybe winning a new hat. Let’s look at the basics here.

We setup a structure with the achievement plate and allowed for text identifying the achievement name and reward name.

Starting with the plate setup and animation in Spine:

Here’s a sample of a few layouts:

We setup these to show up in the bottom left corner and stack if needed. Some examples:

Command Center – Get a Pet:

Stacking example:

When you are in something like the Upgrade room and complete a row of upgrades you can also get a special reward.

Complete Damage Upgrade:

Complete Health Upgrade:

Closeup of achievement:

The deal is we wanted to have some fun with the reward system and instead of just dropping a little “NEW” icon on the menu we went a little further and put some oomph into the presentation. For us, it's work like this which helps bring you a really fun experience and ideally enjoy the game a lot more.

It’s all part of bring you the best we can!

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!
