Fame Through Osmosis

Neat!  According to this website ( [google translation]  Boss Rush is the 9th most thrilling action game on the internet!  Canabalt is predictably #1, but it’s kind of cool to be mentioned in the same article!

Boss Rush is Go!

So it’s been a long, funny sort of road, but after a lot of delays, (some completely unrelated to game programming, and a few, unrelated to Boss Rush at all) but it finally happened.

Busy weeks! Not a whole lot to say here, but progress on Boss Rush continues well.  At this point, the game is basically nailed down and probably a good 90% complete.  Most of the work at this point is down to playtesting and polish, and occasionally adding a new level or two if I think […]
