Boss 101 is a shooter at its core and we like to think it's a little more since it's got a story driving it forward. It's not JUST blasting robo baddies and rolling onto the next level. There is real human drama here folks. This whole adventure is triggered when your brother makes a simple birthday request?





You get to roll YOUR OWN BOSS!

A COMPLETE set for the kitty boss he would look like this!
When you need fashion and stylish upgrades we have HATS!!
One of the sweet hats you can purchase and bring into battle!

A few of the guns available to you during the game.




Take a break and fly a kite in Boss 101. Chat it up with your buddy as you soak in the rays. Maybe you’ll learn something.


You might end blasting samurai swords at warp!


Talk with you soon and LIVE YOUR DREAMS!!!

Welcome to the Boss 101 Update!

Hope you are doing well and thanks for stopping by to check in on our progress. This week we have a couple things to show you. Touchups to the Map Room and the special Pet Room.

Pet Room for your Pet Buddies!

You know you have pet buddies but did you even realize they can live with you!?!? Not only do they live with you but they have a nice little hill with mini houses they sleep in. They can fly around when they like and take naps if they need to. Also – they have all their pet friends to play with.

Here’s a sample of the hill

Of course the weather and time of day will change as you play. Pet Hill is right next to Kite hill. If you were to travel there you would see this.

And if it’s sunny then this!

See how happy they are! They love you too!

Map Room Touchups

We decided the Map Room needed some gopher-ness so we added a little bit more gopher tech from the Professor and Rob. The old map room was cool and all but it was built early in the project before the Professor and Rob were more central to the rebuild in the Command Center. Now that Rob has his own room and since we are in the polish phase we looked at where else might need some ‘oomph’.

The Map room got a bit of a shine with some gopher tech. Here you can see some of the layout instructions for creating art.

We thought about a nice place to insert the new tech and thought the top right corner fit with the game and the theme of the room. The game backstory involves the gophers and Rob building the area. Their work was to create a home base for the player and also a place to store goodies from the player’s travels. The map room is the main point of travel in the game. As you might guess this is where the player decides where he wants to go and what planets he will visit.

Animation Setup Part 2

It only makes sense the gophers would monitor progress from their command posts. Check it!

In Game

OK – more to come and stay tuned. Things are going quite well and we are excited to bring you this game. It the product of a lot of love and passion and we are really enjoying the development process. What really is amazing is you will be playing the game and we would like to imagine you having as much fun exploring and seeing the world of Boss 101 as we had making it.

Hello! It's a game for your PC. We would like to bring it to consoles as well. You can check out our Boss 101 Steam Store at this link: Store.steampowered.com

Hi, guys. This game is looking very cool. Congrats.
I don't use my pc to play, because many games don't run in this. And my patience to solve configuration problems runs out many time ago.
So, I play indie games in my wii-u. When you bring the game to the consoles, I'll buy my copy.
Good Luck in your game.

Hey thanks - we are looking to bring Boss 101 to the consoles too! No word on the specifics since it would all happen post-PC release. Just know that we want to see it on as many platforms as you want!

Thank you!
