Om dette spil

Always wanted to see if you can hack the day-to-day life of a TV producer? Here's your chance!
MUD TV is your ticket to the weird wild world of television. Once you take control of your own station it's up to you to determine the line-up, hire actors and directors, produce your own shows, series and movies and to grab those lucrative advertising deals from right under your competitors' noses. Oh, and about the competition: you can either play MUD TV alone, with your friends over a network or via Internet! Go head-to-head with your opponents as you fight for market share amongst the retired and housewives, headhunt their best employees and, if that doesn't do the trick, a little sabotage should keep your enemies from getting too bored! Or, as an alternative, you can assume control of a station together with a friend and run it cooperatively.
  • Create your own crazy station and take it to the top of the ratings
  • Create your own television empire and build offices, studios, newsrooms and many other important facilities to help secure your success
  • Create your own character and guide them through your own hard-earned television empire
  • Produce your own movies or secure the rights to the best of what the free market has to offer before the competition does

M.U.D. TV is an economic simulation game develped by Realmforge Studios and published by Kalypso Media. You play as the owner of a custom television network that is in competition with several other networks on viewership. Your network must beat the other network's using quality programs, which appeal to eight diverse fanbases, and gain higher advertising revenue. This game is an absolute buggy mess, but, I immensely enjoyed it.

The campaign is an interesting concept. The campaign is very specific that you complete missions that work towards your higher objective. Alternatively, the campaign allows for a slow build to a bigger climax. For instance, you have to earn a million viewers within one week in order to beat another network, which will advance the story. The campaign has cutscenes at the beginning that uses excellent comicbook-esque artwork that is simple and nice. The campaign has the potential to be excellent on paper, but the execution fails miserably. I will expand on why it fails miserably in the issues paragraph below, but, the main issue with the campaign is that it is too difficult. Many members on the forums could not pass level 3, even if they followed a guide. I personally could not pass level four, due to the sheer difficulty. While challenge is a good thing, this is frustrating rather than challenging. While I commend the potential exciting story in the campaign, the majority of players likely gave up on the campaign due to the difficulty rather than try to complete it, which I know I did.

The gameplay is phenomenal. I love these sort of economic simulation games, especially in a television network so I loved playing this game. The process of the game is you buy shows or movies and you add them to your daily network schedule. You buy advertising contracts that match to the shows you air and your network competes with others and the higher viewership generates higher revenues. You can hire a team to make TV shows through an elegant process through the writing team, production team and the post-processing team. Making shows or movies take longer, but have higher quality that potentially can garner higher viewership. The research area is an important tool that assists your network in having more outreach to audiences or even producing quality shows swiftly. The rooms in this game nicely complement other processes, for instance, research and producing a tv show, with the overarching objective to gain viewership. The artwork in this game is neat and bold and fits into the light-hearted tone of the game. I do commend the developers for incorporating satire and humour into the game, as I felt it fit in with the context of the artwork and game style. Like I said, I loved this, as I found competing with other networks to be extremely fun, even if it was unbalanced in how fast a network can buy quality shows. The gameplay was the highlight of the game for me.

The soundtrack is decent. It has some catchy songs, but nothing to write home about.

However, the game's negatives destroyed professional reviewers ratings and my rating. This game, quite frankly, is a buggy and glitchy mess. The developers released seven patches that improved the game and balanced it, but the overall game is unbalanced in the TV side of things but also on the performence side. There were occasional crashes, but the lack of support from the developers hurt this game. For instance, I assume due to under-performence in sales, the developers and publishers gave up any support they had on the game within three months. A quick three months. When they gave up support, they turned off the multiplayer servers, which I unfortunately could not play, and they left the game in a horrible state. The only real decent mode to play this game is customs mode, as its the only mode where players can play and have fun and not just uninstall the game.

Overall, if you are heavily into economic simulation games and are interested in this, by all means, buy it at full price and test the game out. You can get up to about 100 hours with the difficult campaign and the very fun custom mode. In contrast, if you are interested in this and unsure due to the bad publicity, I would not recommend it. The majority likely fit into this category, so I would have to not recommend the game. While the campaign has potential, the artwork and soundtrack are neat and the gameplay is phenomenal, the negatives tremendously hurt this game. The game has limited replayability because there is only a custom mode, where you can grasp the full experience, as the campaign is disappointing in its current state and the MP servers are off. This game had massive potential. But, I still enjoy it.

Scorecard:
Campaign: 3.5/10
Gameplay: 9.5/10
Sound: 5/10
Enormous amount of issues.
Overall: 5.25/10

This is one of the hardest tycoon style games I've ever played, and I've been playing them my whole life. I really enjoy how hard it is to conquer some of the missions, unlike some other games where you can kind of just set it and forget it. This one keeps you on your toes.
As far as the crashes go, I haven't had this happen to me. I'm running on new dell laptop and on windows 10, though it ran on windows 8 fine for me as well. Although I haven't had crashes, I am having an issue where I can't drag certain actors or certain ads when I want them, but I can remedy this by restarting the game and it doesn't happen often enough to be a deal breaker for me.
I would definitely love to see more games like this one.

No crashes for me, I really enjoy simulation games and this one is one of the hardest to master. I feel the simulation genre has really taken off lately and MUD was one of the first in the new generation. It's too bad it had so many bugs for some people I think it would have done much better otherwise. I would recommend it for $5 or less if you like these types of games.

No support, No active updates. But the most important issue is thta the game won't start anymore and no one is answering my requests.

Good potential, pathetic execution and support team!

Not exactly a complex Simulation Game, but at the same time a little too muddy (Pun not intended) It has a charm to it, but just a little too boring and annoying to navigate.

MUD TV is a tycoon style game in which you run a television studio. You decide the programing, select advertisers, and even produce shows. The game tries to be a spiritual sucessor to the 1999 classic MAD TV, just without its addictive nature or its fun.

Failed Humor

MUD TV tries extremly hard to be funny, and you can tell the develpers thought they were hilarious. However all this humor falls flat. The descriptions of the different veiwership groups come off as stereotyped rather than funny, the discriptions of different TV shows comes off as Cynical rather than clever, and the story of a Mad scientest trying to take over the world through television sounds like it was written by a third grader.

Gameplay

However the humor and story would not matter if the gameplay was good. Sadly it is not. Gameplay centers around either filiming or buying TV shows and stragically adding them to the schedule. That is about it. Espionage and resarch form very minor parts of the gameplay. They system for producing show is incredibly simple and it is very easy to regularly produce five star productions. The gameplay just feels repetitive and boring. The competition aspect almost does not matter and unlike many other tycoon games, nothing will come up to stand in your way. There is no challenge so the game becomes somewhat boring.

HOWEVER,
this game is strangly addicting despite it's bad qualities. It can be an interesting puzzle to fit the shows into your schedule, and the game, though repetitive can be fun for hours. In reality, if I could give this a rating of neither yes or no but somewhere in between I would, becuase I was actually pulled in and enjoyed the game, but that may simply be becuase I have not spent much time with it If you are interested try to find the demo online, and see if this apeals to you. Also keep in mind that a similar game is being relased on the 20th of October 2015, called Empire TV Tycoon which looks very promising. I would recomend you consider that before you purchase MUD TV

6/10

*Note: I have spent another 5 hours or so playing the demo, which is very similar to the actual game.

A decent but uninteresting management game. Due to shallow and simple mechanics it failed to ramp up into a proper challenge. Only recommended if you've played all your other tycoon games and it's on sale.

One of the best simulation games I've played... until it crashes every time. Incredibly hard to get it running, it will only run on one of my 4 'modern' machines... and when it does run, it always crashes after a week or two in-game play... all indications are that there is a severe memory leak. Among other technical issues related to starting it up...

Which is a shame because when I finally got it running, until the inevitable crash, each game was outstanding.

I am not sure why it crashes for some people, I have 17 hours playing so far, the in game timer has reached day 8 in mission 2 and no problems.

Only one time did it "crash" but I had alt-tab out of the game, then returned after an hour to play some more and it froze up. But other games will do this at times.

Game play is more puzzle than anything, but you still have to get a strategy to finish each mission.

The only downside is there is no free play. Once you complete a goal for a mission it moves to the next goal and you have to start all over building again.-- No free play after you finish a mission---

There is free play in the custom game.

- "Create your own character and guide them through your own hard-earned television empire"

You do not get to create your own character in game, you get to play the story presented as Matt. There is a seperate exe that lets you make a custom character


Overall, a fun game that is worth one go around, but does not seem to have much replay value. I was glad I picked this one up.

Not much to say. Nice idea but the bugs and the way the company communicates is a no-go.
  • not a single post in the forums
  • just release this game to grab some extra money - even with the knowledge that there is a memory leak which will not be fixed
  • in general no support will be given to the game - uncool to release a game on Steam then
  • a bug occured that makes loading a game impossible - game crashes after opening the time table

Again a nice idea wasted. Better take a look to the free open source game TVTower

Not worth the money. It took about an hour to actually get it working because it would crash after the opening. The learning curve is a bit steep and after that, it's not even worth it because the game itself is very boring, dull and the humor.. is.. well. The jokes try hard to be funny but, end up being offensive and stupid.

The gameplay is incredibly confusing. It tries to be realistic but, ends up just being tedious.

I don't recommend this game at all.

A frustrating clone of MAD TV, which takes the original, gives it a 3D graphical facelift, and undermines enjoyment through long loading times and pointless frustrations. It keeps on coming close to the addictive brilliance of the original, but never quite gets there.

Interesting attempt at a Hospital Tycoon genre game. MUD TV gives the player an avatar, and makes them run around between rooms if they want to do things. In the real world, it means your attention isn't focused where you wish it was, and having a good strategy can lose to poor base-building organization. All in all this is what hurts the game most of all to me: In other games I can dwell on one window as much as I want while I'm doing other tasks. Here, if one thing needs my constant attention, it stops me from doing anything else until I'm done.

Actor-wrangling has a pretty fun stat system, absolutely every person is interchangable in every role from acting to directing to postproduction, but stats that improve performance in some roles are actually a downside in others. There is no meaningful one-player mode: Your station is always competing with other (usually CPU-controlled) stations for viewers. Program production isn't *deep*, but it's better designed than a lot of stand-alone "make a movie" games that I've seen.

Unless you are playing as a public-supported station, the funding model is /weird/ to play. You gain no money directly from airing programs--instead, you buy contracts with advertisers for things like "within 48 hours, run this ad in 8 slots that have at least 2 million geek viewers". It's a cool idea, but the avatar control means you need to leave your station and run down to the ad station, and then you have to scramble to get the good ads before the other players do. It also means that making money is very boolean; you either hit your contracts and do well, or you whiff them and get screwed hard.

MUD TV innovates a lot and breaks a lot of genre conventions. If its changes worked, the execution is good enough that it would be genre-defining like Hospital Tycoon. However its experiments just don't seem to work for me. If you want a jump-in-and-enjoy genre game, maybe look elsewhere. If you're willing to experiment a lot, and explore the edges of the genre, give it a shot.

1.5 stars. This is a good idea for a game that appears to be poorly delivered. Maybe it's just me but I found it fairly hard to learn and even harder to play. Basically I'd rather go back to playing old Theme Hospital than slogging through this game.

It may not sound it... But "M.U.D TV" is a very fun tv broadcasting simulator! You can broadcast ads, shows, make shows, make your studio, check your stats, mess up other tv shows (kinda XD) and theres an npc called nuck chorris! 7/10
