In the 2021 edition there will be a new type of players.... “not players” :). What they will characterize and for what purpose they will be introduced about it you will learn in today's post.
Currently, there are 3 types of producers in the game:
- Human players,
- komputerowi gracze sterowani przez AI
- and virtual producers.
Wirtualni producenci to prawdziwe studia, które są wypełniaczami Boxoffice and Festiwali Filmowych. Ponieważ coraz więcej osób domaga się wprowadzenia platform streamingowych (tak, szczególnie młodsi gracze – fajnie, że jacyś są 😉 – want to see Netflix in the game) I decided to respond to these requests in some way. However, I will do so in a new way that gives some additional opportunities.
Well, it will be realized by a new type of players (Non Players). The name comes from the fact that on the one hand the player (human) will not have any influence on these players (ie will not be able to choose such players for the game or not). Secondly, such players will appear dynamically during the game. This is due to the fact that Netflix is a relatively new invention and does not specifically fit into the "realistic" part of the Movie Business. It will therefore appear within a certain time frame of the game. So, won't there be anything before Netflix...? – Not quite.
Well, such “non players” there will be 3 types. VOD services, TELEVISION Stations, and Companies/Corporations.
TS stations and Corporations will be able to appear in an earlier phase of the game (but also not simultaneously), at the latest VOD services will appear. An additional interesting fact resulting from such mechanics is... that as the game progresses, it will become more difficult (because there will be new competition – interestingly, this competition will have a lot of opportunities – larger than a regular player or even a computer player).
What's more, as "non-players" will actually be players (but not all their actions will be visible), we will get an additional bonus in the form of the possibility of creating a movie for Netflix – lub np. stacji telewizyjnej (będzie to po prostu funkcja zostanie producentem wykonawczym – although possible with minor twists) which some players have also asked for. And why corporations... as you guessed to outsource to you the production of advertising ... that is, specific, short films.
How do you like this feature? Do you have any additional suggestions?
