What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want to make Filmmaker Tycoon the best movie simulation game there is and make the player feel that they are actually running a Movie Studio. To achieve this, we want to involve the community and use their feedback to fine tune the game-play mechanics and features of Filmmaker Tycoon.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan to stay in Early Access for 6-8 months. During this time, we hope to release frequent updates to the game.”

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

“We have some features that are tentatively planned which are not yet polished enough to be released. These features include Dynamic Poster Generation, Custom Movie Set Creation and Custom Actor Creation. We are not 100% committing to a release date for these features but these are in the works.

We also plan to have a fully featured campaign in the final release of the game. The campaign will be gradually developed with story elements being introduced regularly.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is currently fully stable and playable. All the features in the 'About This Game' section have been implemented. Please check the 'About This Game' section to read about Filmmaker Tycoon's features and mechanics.”

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

“The game's price at Full Release will be approximately 20-30% higher than the Early Access price.”

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

“We want the community to help us make this game the best Movie Tycoon experience possible. We will ask the community for their feedback on all the features that we have already implemented and will implement during Early Access. We are open to making heavy changes to our implementations based on said feedback.

We will be communicating with the Community through the Steam Community Hub and will take their feedback into account when implementing and tweaking features. We encourage players to suggest new features and report bugs.

We also have an active Discord community where players are suggesting new features and reporting bugs.
