Game Development: Creating Lore and History


Hello and welcome to the Boss 101 weekly update!

Polish, cleanup and bug fixing continue! We’re three people working as hard as we can FOR YOU! Boss 101 is heading your way as fast as we can make it. Some good news is we are getting ready for a friends and family release for further gameplay testing! YAY!

Thank you for joining us THIS WEEK to talk about the LORE and backstory for Boss 101.

Tanya wants to know if you are ready for some battles in Boss 101

Let’s get rolling with some of the basic history of the Boss 101 universe. This is a place of high technology and sentient robotics. As you might imagine from the title of the game – the boss robots are in charge of a large part of the known universe. Earth is part of their federation. Thing is – Earth is sorta viewed as a rural area of the universe. Not a whole lot of technology and it’s really not much of a threat to the ruling robots. 

When the game gets rolling you are introduced to Max (from Earth) and Steve (formerly of the Robo Alliance). From here on out you learn about the Robo Alliance, the bosses, the Earth and what exactly is happening to free Earth from the Robo Federation. Now, we realize there may be a few of you who don’t really care for a huge backstory and Boss 101 will allow (where possible) you to zip ahead in dialogs or skip things if you just want to play. As much as possible we designed the game to allow a basic level of fun without the need to know everything going on in the story.


Did you know you bring stickers and toys back from each round to give to Rob? Well you do and he loves them. Here are a few being handed to Rob after hard earned battles!

Visitors in the Command Center 

So you win a battle and end the round. Occasionally you get a notice a new visitor arrived in the Command Center. This normally means you get a few things. One you get to make a new buddy. Two most all visitors bring you a pet! Yay! Last, you will receive a little bit of info about what’s going on in the universe by checking out the info they bring with them. 

Passports and The Professor’s Wiki

These are a few of the ways we are adding in details about what is going on with Boss 101. You can always check on the Professor’s Wiki and read the latest entry. He gets updates every time a new person, pet or event happens so it’s worth your while to give it a look at least every now and then.

The Passports – all the visitors in the Command Center will be carrying their galactic passports. These are the main way beings travel about the Robo Federation and use the system of jump gates. On these passports you can see where people are from as well as some character notes. 

Mostly – we want you to play the game like YOU want to play it. We know there are a few of you who are excited about the whole Boss 101 universe and we will be giving you as much info as we can about it. Boss 101 (the game) is ideally just the first in the series and with YOUR KIND SUPPORT we want to continue building on this start to bring you more. 

Check out some of the images below to see what we have been talking about!

About Donley Timeone of us since 11:50 PM on 10.22.2015

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!
