Cattle Call is out of Early Access!

Dear All,

Cattle Call has finally left Early Access and stepped on a larger stage.

To celebrate this milestone, a launch discount of 15% has been instigated.

Once again, I’d like to thank everybody who have bought the game!

A huge special thanks + a lot of love and appreciation to those who helped us make the game better with their feedback and encouragement! I’m very grateful to you guys, your support meant much more than you’d imagine.

We’ll continue supporting the game with bugfixes, tweaks, and (hopefully, if we can afford) additional language versions.

Besides, I’m also planning to release a couple of modding tools and guides shortly (for free, paid DLCs are not endorsed by me), so you can tweak random events/write your own events, edit your actors’ stats and more.

Thanks again for everything and let’s celebrate this milestone with the unforgettable Andrew Sachs from one of the greatest TV comedies of all time:

Version 2.0.0 has been released!

Dear All,

After a lot of blood, swear(ing) and tears, I’m happy to announce that the new version is finally live on Steam!

I named it 2.0.0 because I felt that the speed boost the game received sort of elevated it to new heights (from a molehill to a termite castle :)

So, speaking of speed boost - by far the most important “feature” of this build is that the Load Game/Save Game time were reduced to mere seconds as opposed to about 40 seconds and more in year 3 onwards in the previous versions!

Aside from this key improvement, several bugs were squashed, quite a few tweaks and polish were applied.

Let me list the major changes, I’ll leave the rest to you to discover :)

Remember, some of these changes only come into effect when you start a new game!

  • Load Game / Save Game time have been reduced dramatically

  • The time of the turn where the Box Office Gross is calculated and hence the access time of the Box Office Chart have been reduced epically (this was a nuisance after 1-1.5 years into the game)

  • The bug where A-lister and Notable actors did not join your agency despite accepting the contract has been fixed

  • When you win or lose a Chat, that option will be immediately deactivated, not only in the next turn (so you can no longer nag the actor and code until you get what you want)

  • Mutual termination event was added – if an actor is “Depressed” there is a chance from time to time that he/she will request mutual termination (which you can accept or decline)

  • “Victory event” added – you win the game upon unlocking “Major” reputation (but you can play on in “Endless Mode” nonetheless). Aside from giving all of us a sense of achievement, I wanted such an event for the prospective Steam Achievements.

  • Several “award events” were added – I made quite a few award events to fill the void their absence caused. It’s not the epic/complex awards system I envisioned/designed but I have to bow to reality (see my separate post about the future of the game).

  • Morale fix and tweak – less depressed actors, more shiny, happy people. I hope I did not make it too easy now...)

  • Actors only had one birthplace per nationality - fixed

About This Game


Ever wanted to be Ari Gold from the cult TV show ‘Entourage’ (a slightly less profane and neurotic version perhaps)? Wanted to discover new talents from thousands of aspiring actors, guide them to fame, wealth and glory…or ruin their lives completely? Ever wanted to handle needy divas, lazy ass actors, junkies, sex addicts or complete jerks? Ever wanted to search through hundreds of casting notices to find that perfect role for a desperate client? Drive hard negotiations for a juicy backend bonus then anxiously check the box office chart every week hoping the movie will generate a massive profit? Enjoy a series of heart attacks on ‘Upfront Week’ when the large TV networks decide whether one of your series regulars’ show will be renewed for the next season or get the boot?

If the answer to any of these questions is ‘yes’, then 'Cattle Call: Hollywood Talent Manager' will make your wildest dreams come true.
