Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Cattle Call might look like just some lighthearted „actor manager stuff”, but in fact it is a comprehensive simulation of the film and TV industry and the lives of all its actors (literally and figuratively) that we shed a lot of blood, sweat, tears, and money for in the last 3 years. We believe that the game deserves the time needed to fulfill its full potential. However, since we cannot fund its „fulfillment time” alone, we hope to complete this mission with the help of all the beautiful human beings who’ll support us on Early Access.

At the same time, we also look forward to your feedback and suggestions for the game. So far, we have been developing 'Cattle Call' like two hermits alone in a forest. And while all the wild boars around us seem to like it, we are still yearning for a more educated and sophisticated audience.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game will be in development for about 4-6 months to implement/polish/balance all the planned features and content. That said, community requests and ideas may extend this period.”

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

“We plan to implement a bunch of additional features while continuously polishing and balancing the existing elements as well.

While the specific list of additional goodies will ultimately depend on player feedback and suggestions, here are some of the „A-listers” that we intend to include in the full release: Modding tools, Additional Languages, Steam Achievements, Leaderboards, Movie and TV Awards, More Random Events, Typecasting, Voiceover Casting, Movie Sequels/Prequels/Remakes, and some more.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Everything that is specified in the "ABOUT THIS GAME" section of the page is already in the game, please refer to that for details.

You can already happily play Cattle Call for years (ingame time or real-life time for the hardestcore folks). That said, there are some elements that we want to add (see examples above) and the existing elements will certainly benefit from further polish and player feedback, too.”

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

“Absolutely. Those aforementioned beautiful human beings who buy the Early Access version will be rewarded with a lower price.

After release, the price will skyrocket (well...won't skyrocket but it will go up nonetheless).”

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

“Community involvement is essential in the success of any game and Cattle Call is no exception. We’ll always listen to your questions, comments, thoughts, and suggestions about the game.

Our community manager will answer every single message on the Steam discussion boards, via email, and on social media (FB, Twitter).

Since this community manager also happens to be the designer/writer/scripter/producer/tester/part-time artist/part-time programmer/marketing manager/whatnot manager of the game we can guarantee that he’s fully authorized and able (at least he said so) to address any subject that might come up.”

Please don’t use the Actor Properties (actor editor)

Dear All,

While we are working on the next update, slated for later this week, I got more and more bug reports stemming from the use of the Actor Properties that you can reach by right clicking on an actor’s name in the talent database.

I must admit (honesty overrules pride) that this feature was left in the release version by accident. I haven’t used it for about two years and completely forgot about its existence.

Therefore, THE ACTOR PROPERTIES IS TOTALLY UNTESTED, LARGELY OUTDATED AND IS LIKELY CAUSING ALL SORTS OF PROBLEMS (CRASHES, DOUBLE MESSAGES AND MORE) IN ITS CURRENT FORM.

PLEASE DO NOT USE IT AND IT WILL ALSO BE REMOVED FROM THE NEXT UPDATE.

I’ll give you back this modding tool at a later stage when it’s thoroughly tested.

Thank you and apologies for the problems it has caused.

Sitrep and update news

Dear All,

We are currently (or constantly rather) waist deep in shi...ny bugfixing, tweaking and general improvements.

Expect the arrival of the next update some time next week.

After that - while bugfixing, tweaking and improvements based also on your feedback will (always) remain part of the process - we can finally start working (fast) on the addition of the two most prominent aka. “A-lister” features that are sorely missed now:

Mr. Ingame Awards (Oscars and co.) and Mrs. Steam Achievements

Thank you for your attention, stay tuned and please don’t stop being awesome! :)

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.
