All work done on Bos will respect the Bos goals. At first, we will concentrate our efforts on making Bos a complete game.

WARNING: This Wiki is a conversion of the old PmWiki of Boswars. Some pages may still have incorrectly formatted text. A lot of the content is obsolete.

A project like BosWars requires a lot of work even if we didn't list your speciality here. Please contact us.

For example, many voices in BosWars should be replaced. Ideally all the voices would be generated with scripts as has been done for a couple of them.
