I love this game. If you are a fan of Management/Simulation Games, then this game is a MUST OWN.
  • You will spend hours upon hours making your Movies.
  • Hire the most talented and also the most suitable Directors and Actors.
  • Improving your studio’s Technology and reputation.
  • Create your own movies Posters (not mandatory).
  • And the developer is working on a Sequel too. Great Stuff!

A straight forward movie studio sim. Bought in a bundle and for that price it is 7.5/10. I would not buy it at full retail.

Made a movie called "The Death Of Anita Sarkeesian" where I tweaked the script for months until all stats were at 5 stars.
Hired the best director and the best actresses to star. It was released to rave reviews and got 96% approval rating.

Then I milked it for sequel after sequel. I started in 1927... it is now 1970 and 27 Death of Anita Sarkeesian movies have been released.

10/10 wouldn't change a thing!

Not a very fun game. Its basically a spreadsheet/database simulator. You can put together movies & such using a huge list of Actors, producers, directors & such, none of which have any personality beyond having a name and a pricetag. The secret to success in this game seems to be spend as much money as you can on the cast & crew... you will have a hit movie every time so long as you sort candidates by cost & pick whoever appears at the top of the list. And it will be exactly the same every time.

Fun, addictive, cynical movie production simulator!

It's quite a simple process - you pick name, genre, subgenre and themes for your film. Then you pick writers, actors, directors and producers to create it for you, based on their experience, talents and fees. Then you find out how it did! Did the public like it? Did the critics like it? Did it make you money? Then you make the cynical choices like producing 10 sequels to your terrible action movie series in order to fund your serious movies.

Don't expect this to be like The Movies, where you actually get to see any of your film animated. You also don't have floor plans and rooms to manage, it's not that kind of sim. Take a look at the screenshots - that's pretty much what you're getting.

It looks simple, but it's a lot of fun!
