Hello everybody and happy 2017!!!

Over the last months we have been working on the Empire TV Tycoon portability to tablet devices, that means we have optimized the game in lot of ways, as a result of this we bring you a new patch(v1.6) for Empire TV Tycoon.

As we’ve said this patch is all about optimization and improving the game performance. Furthermore, we’ve fixed some minor bugs that we found while working on it.

We hope to release the game for both iOS and Android soon.

First year anniversary (50% discount)

Hello all, it’s been a year since we released Empire TV Tycoon on Steam and now is time to celebrate!

When we released Empire TV Tycoon back in October 20th of 2015, we already thought that the game was in a very good shape and that’s why we decided to go with a full 1.0 release instead of an Early Access method. Although we are small indie team of two people, we promised to listen to the player suggestions and keep working on improving the game with the community feedback and as many new features as we could.

Here is a small recap of all the improvements and new features that has been added into the game during this last year:
- Doubled the speed of the elevator.
- Added a new Warning Window.
- Added Audience Smiles on the TV.
- Made editable/customizable the text of the scripts.
- Added the Endless Mode.
- Added Channel Specialization.
- Added Audience Bans.
- Added Channel News.
- Added Best Movie Awards.
- Added Mini Series and Long Duration TV Shows.
- Added the Custom Mode.
- Added restoration save points for the savegames.
- Added the Antennas Map.
- Reworked the Ads and game progression systems.
- Added Special Content.
- Added Second Seasons.
- Added the Movie Archive.
- Added Mods and Workshop support.
- Added game compatibility for tablets.
- Translated the game to German, French, Portuguese and Russian.
- Added tons of new movies, ads, actors, quest, events and other game content.
- Added lots of tooltips, help windows and gameplay feedback
- Tweaked and balanced all the game systems.
- Graphically improved and adjusted nearly all windows in the game.
- Fixed lots of bugs and other issues.

Not bad, right? We are very happy on how the year turned out. Currently we are finishing the next patch that will make the game compatible with tablet devices and fix some minor bugs. When the patch is finished we will release the game for IPad and Android Tablets as soon as possible.

When we finish the tablet version we will decide what to do next, we have an interesting idea for a new game that we will like to explore in more detail. As for a sequel, yes we have talked about it and we would really like to make Empire TV 2 at some point in the future, correcting our early mistakes, making it visually more appealing, much more complex and adding multiplayer.

To celebrate the 1 year anniversary we offer a two week 50% discount.
As always, thank you all for your support.

About This Game

Empire TV Tycoon is a game in which you manage a TV channel and fight for audiences taking decisions that will project your channel to fame and fortune.You will decide the content of your channel, select advertisers, hire workers, make your own productions, hire actors, and engage in much more activities! It's inspired by games such as Mad TV, Mud TV, and other movie management games, with a modern approach on how to produce custom content such as movies or tv-shows.

Empire TV is a big corporation having serious losses, and It can't afford to maintain three channels, but only one, any longer. You have been hired to lead one of the channels to achieve fame and be the one that remains.


  • Manage your channel and determine the best content for the current audience. Also, increase your fame and win the war between the three Empire TV channels.

  • Buy and sell movies or TV shows that suit your audience best. Also, you can select your favorite movies from about 1000 movies.
  • Don't be tempted to use illegal content. While pirated movies are cheaper, the risk is high and police is always watching.
  • If you can help the advertisers to reach your audience, you will win some money. But be careful: Sometimes, their requests and deadlines are hard to fulfill.
  • Hire workers who will help you to execute different tasks, and each one with their own level and skill.
