Working Remotely

By John Evanson  

BonusXP is headquartered just outside Dallas in Allen, TX, but there’s a few of us who work remotely. I work from our house in the sleepy college town of Plymouth, New Hampshire.  If “New Hampshire” sounds vaguely familiar, that’s probably because it’s an election year.  And if “Plymouth” does, you’re probably thinking of the one in Massachusetts.

Plymouth is in pretty much the geographic center of New Hampshire, […]

Holiday Python Project

By Alex Swaim  

When people ask me what it’s like to be a game developer – often it’s kids or their parents dreaming of turning a passion into a career – I make sure to stress the difference between a love of playing games with a love of working on them. It’s hard to be a professional developer if you don’t love making things.

To that end, I often work on small experimental side projects. Over the winter holidays I had a week or so while I was visiting my parents to start something new.

I knew a few things about […]

Creating Tileable Textures for The Incorruptibles

By Austin Chalk  

Tileable textures are used in many aspects of game art texturing, from adding simple noise to covering a scenic landscape. In this blog post, I wanted to show one of the many ways I go about making one of these versatile textures. This one is from our new game, The Incorruptibles!

For a rocky texture like this, I’ll sculpt a couple variations of individual rocks to arrange on a texture grid.

For a tileable texure grid, I first place pieces on […]

New Board Games

By Jacob Naasz  

Every couple of weeks we have a board game night at BonusXP where we stay late after work and play a game or two of one of the many board games piled on some tables behind my desk. It’s a great way to socialize with co workers and is also a great way to look at game systems for inspiration for the games we are making.

I have a confession to make. I LOVE board games. As a game designer I also love the resurgence of board games in the last few years and doubly love […]

Berserker Frenzy

By Graham Somers  

berserkerThe Berserker is the rookie of the team of heroes in The Incorruptibles, being the newest one to enlist. This hero throws axes at his target and he is particularly effective against Brutes like the Marauder and Leviathan. His power is called Frenzy, which significantly increases the Berserker’s damage for a short time but at the cost of a bit of health. This health can be replaced by healers, so yes, pairing a Berserker with another hero that can train Healers allows you to […]

The Incorruptibles – Now on Android

We’re very happy to announce that The Incorruptibles, the latest game from BonusXP and our partner MaxPlay, is now available for Android devices via Google Play. The game launched last month on the App Store, and certainly one of the frequently asked questions was, “When will it be available for Android?”

The Incorruptibles is a real-time strategy game for iOS devices. The game gives you real time control of your heroes in fast paced battles, more like our classic RTS games. You can fight against the evil Corrupted in single player or other players from around the […]

2015 BonusXP Christmas Party

By Marc Hanson

Legend has it, the BonusXP Company Christmas Party of 2014, held at Whiskey Cake, was totally amaze-balls. Having joined the company later on, I only got to experience the greatness with the stories told by the old timers who survived the gluttonous celebration.

Lucky for me, after nearly a year of hearing how awesome the food was, I got to experience it for myself at the BonusXP Company Christmas Party of 2015, held at Whiskey Cake 2: Electric Boogaloo.

We rented out a private party room where waitresses brought delicious risotto balls and other appetizers, as well […]

Bruce Shelley put together a blog post on The Incorruptibles for MaxPlay’s Developer Spotlight in which he talks about our vision for the game. Here’s an excerpt, check out the full post here on MaxPlay.io.

“We see plenty of mobile strategy games available, but they aren’t RTS. In our experience, the mobile device itself is having more fun than the player, who spends much of the game just watching, not making decisions and personally driving the action. We set out to offer an alternative where the player has the skills and makes the interesting decisions, not […]
