Description

You have just been appointed the head of a new Movie Studio and have been given 10 years to make it the most successful studio around. You are up against seven other computer controlled Studios all trying to be the best Studio in the world. You are judged in three ways - most turnover, most profit and most awards.

As the Studio Boss you have lots of decisions to make, including: controlling the budget, deciding what type of film you are going to make, hiring a scriptwriter, getting the best director, trying to get the screenplay right, negotiating with the stars, handling problems on set, getting the post-production right and that’s all before you worry about the cinema release. You’ve got marketing costs, web publicity, test screenings, how many screens to show the film on, when to hit the International markets, when to sell it to TV, how long before you put it on DVD and much, much more!
  • Turn based (each turn represents a week), yet has time pressure. Players have around 10 minutes to make all their decisions each turn and can end the week early if they want.
  • More than one way to win. Bosses can win by being the best at making high turnover, profitable or classic award-winning films.
  • Each section of the game is designed as a ‘mini-game’ in itself.
  • Success is firmly in the hands of the player. Decisions they make (and they have many to consider) always affect their box office.
  • Covers pretty much the entire movie making experience.
  • You are up against seven other computer-controlled players.
  • We keep the numbers sensible - you do not see $1,067,345 ever in our game. Just $1M. This helps to keep the game from looking too much like a spreadsheet.

  1. Movie studio sim
    by Marino1278, Germany - Jul 9th 2017

    You need to manage a movie studio, make movies etc. Graphics are ok, but else not really.

  2. Insufficient tutorial/documentation
    by Greedy, USA - Aug 27th 2016

    I agree with the reviewer that a video game should be more fun than the real experience, and this simulation game is not fun. My problem with the game is that I can't understand why certain things are happening, or what strategy to take for making money. The tutorial gets you up and making a movie, but unable to compete with the other studios, even on "Easy" mode. I did download the 26-page .pdf Manual (easily found online by googling), but this didn't answer my questions. For example, how do I figure out what an actor wants in negotiations? It's all very hit and miss. Which I find frustrating.

  3. Game for...smartphone?
    by dorugradinaru, Romania - Aug 27th 2016

    Dissapointing if you played "The Movies" back in the days. Really I don't understand why they can't make a game like that anymore. This looks like a game on your phone.
