Game Development: Boss 101 Hat Contest Winners


Hello and welcome to the Boss 101 Weekend Update. Lots of news as well as results from the Suggest a Hat contest are in this update! Let’s get moving shall we?

Hat Contest Winners are HERE!

First off – we had originally planned to have three hats made for the contest but since there were so many great suggestions we upped that number to SEVEN. That’s right we picked seven hats from YOUR SUGGESTIONS to be put inside Boss 101. We had nearly 200 entries across seven websites and THANK YOU SO MUCH for taking a moment to suggest something to us!

The winners are below and as you look at them please consider the following points if you don’t see YOUR particular suggestion in the winning bracket.

- Some entries were copies or close to hats we already had in the game. As a reference we had nearly 300 hats in Boss 101 BEFORE the contest. Many suggestions ended up being close to hats we already had and they didn’t make much sense to do again. 
- Your winning suggestion might have been combined with a similar suggestion. We had a few duplicates and some of these were chosen by the team. 
- Your hat suggestion might have gotten modified to fit the Boss 101 style. This is not a slam on anyone’s suggestion but it is part of our effort to stick with the art style and game themes we have.
- Any suggestions we didn’t choose and isn’t already being done is now on list of possible hats for Boss 102. So much good stuff will not go to waste! 
- If your hat idea wasn’t picked you’re still a good person and we love you!

Take a moment to check out the selections below. Each selection has a sample animation as well as a sample of the new bullet you get when wearing the hat.

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!
