What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early Access is a popular way for game developers to get feedback from players and improve their game before it is officially released. We would like to use it to get early feedback from the players and to provide a playable version of our game while we work out the final bugs, inconsistencies and implement the new upcoming features.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We are planning the official release very close to the Early Access release. The exact date of the release will depend to a large extent on the speed of development and bug fixes. However, we plan to keep the game in Early Access for no longer than 2-3 months.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“We are planning to release new features in the full version such as:
- Add the possibilty to create series
- Upgrade of the Streaming Service Feature
- Add new sources instead of just screenplays
- Improve the design
- Rework calculations so that the results are more in line with what is expected.
- And many more things that are still in planning!

However we also want to improve the qualitiy of the final version. This means that we will also focus on improving the stability and usability of the full version. As well as fixing all the bugs that may appear during Early Access.

If significant problems or requests for certain features come up during the Early Access period, we will try to incorporate them into the full version as much as possible. Please note that Film Studio Manager is a student project and we may not have sufficient resources to fully address requests or issues.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Please note that this is a only nearly finished software. It is in Early Access. This means that there will inevitably be some bugs and performance issues that we intend to fix over the course of the Early Access period. However, the game is already fully playable in Early Access as all the features mentioned in the "About This" section are fully implemented and working.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“There will be no change in price on release of the full version.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We want to involve the community in the development of the game, both during Early Access and after release. If you have any problems, suggestions or bug reports, please feel free to contact us at Thank you!”

About This Game

Film Studio Manager - a strategy game and management simulation that simulates the business of the film industry. Are you ready to take on the challenge of managing a film studio?

Take on the challenge of starting and running your own film studio from scrath. Finance and produce movies, hire actors and staff, market and distribute movies, and navigate the ever-changing film industry.

Make your own films by selecting from a range of genres and sub-genres. Utilise the straightforward user interface to craft unique storylines and characters. Take charge of every stage of the filmmaking process - budgeting, recruiting the ideal director, writer and cast are all in your control.

Start your own streaming service to increase revenue for your studio. Monitor your network's efficiency and expand your reach by licensing content from other studios.

Compete with other studios to release the best movies and stay ahead of the competion. With an ever-evolving market and the opportunity to take risks and make mistakes, the game offers an exciting and rewarding experience for all types of players.

Awards are an important part of the film industry and winning them can be a major boost for the film industry, as it increases a film's marketability and popularity. To gain awards for your movies, you must create high-quality, well-received productions that are both praised by critics and loved by audiences.

Film Studio Manager utilises databases as a key component. Our expansive, fictitious database stores information related to the game, including actors, directors, writers, studios, and awards. Our database editor allows you to customize and manage your own databases.

Unfortunately, we need to delay the release of Film Studio Manager on macOS due to technical difficulties. However, we want to reassure our Windows users that the Windows version will be released as expected, without any delays.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and we appreciate your understanding. We are working hard to resolve the issues and ensure that the macOS version is released as soon as possible.

Thank you for your patience and support.
