The Boss Room project equips you with all the project files and assets you need to explore the creation of a small-scale cooperative game packed with playable characters, enemies, and a boss. As Boss Room is being developed, tutorials on the different aspects of networking the sample will be written for developers right here on our live documentation site – so stay tuned!
