Proposals of improvements for reviews in MovieStats

In the Movie Business you will find descriptive reviews of your movies this is one of the features of the game with which I am quite proud of but mainly… with the Polish version. When I decided to create an English version of the game, there were many texts that need to be translated, that the only way to do it in a reasonable time was to use the automatic translation function. Unfortunately, the Polish language is quite complicated, and the result of such a translation leaves much to be desired. Hence, I decided to provide you with a tool that will allow you to suggest a better version of existing reviews. The tool will be available in MovieStats in the tab Reviews.

As usual, the corresponding text, this year, titled What's new in edition 2019 of Movie Business 2 you will find at my personal blog. This is a summary of all post that you had the opportunity to read on the game page, but even if you followed them carefully, it's worth looking not only because there was a few additional information, but also to see images from the new version of the game.

In the next version.... Test screening

The 2018 Edition among the events that may appear during the production were those related to the reaction of the audience after the test screening. It was an event somewhat detached from the reality of the game, because the player could not organize such a show. Expanding the potential events in the course of production I decided to fix it. In the latest version on the occasion of major productions, just before the premiere, the player will be given the opportunity to organize such a test show. Its result will be feedback from viewers and critics, what went wrong in the film.

In the next version… Festival Gala

Festivals and awards are a very important element of the film world. In Movie Business they also play an important role. However, up to now, the celebration associated with festivals was not too great in the game. To say the truth, the player could even miss the fact that his film won the prize. In the new version it will change, in the end the festivals will definitely get a more celebrity setting ... thanks to the festival gal.

Interview with the author of the Movie Business on Games Gal

A few days ago contacted me Artur D臋dek from the blog Games Galwho asked about the possibility of conducting an interview with me in the context of Movie Business. After a short thought, I decided that, why not. So today I have the pleasure to invite you to an interview with my person on this blog, which on every day brings together RPG Maker enthusiasts.

The interview was carried out by the communicator so excuse the stylistics of some statements. The whole, however, is quite extensive and it seems to me that it came out quite interesting. Perhaps you will find there some interesting facts about the history of the creation and the process of game development. So, I invite you to a long read, just right for Sunday evening.

In the next version ... Financial history and analytics

A large part of the beginner players are still complaining about the unpredictability of the game (more specifically, it can not be reconciled with the fact that one movie brings huge profits while the other, similar at the first glance, makes a lot of losses). It seems to me that the core issue is not the unpredictability itself, but the lack of tools to analyze what is happening in the game. Hence, in the new version, such a tool will appear in the form of simple analytical tools.

In the next version… Changes to the game modes

One of my lecturers from Human-Computer Interaction course asked us once how much the application should have modes?… The correct answer was… 1. It is clear from this perspective that Movie Business is a badly designed application with 4 game modes. Unfortunately, life is not easy and different users have different needs and preferences, hence the number of game modes in the Movie Business will be greater than 1 ... However, observation of players' behavior has made me realize that some changes are needed in this area.

In the next version… Character types in the scenario

The first new functionality that will appear in the 2019 edition, about which I would like to tell you are character types.

Until now, creating a movie based on a specific scenario during choosing the actors it was best to fit them to the genre of a given movie. For example, for action films, we usually chose actors with a large action parameter. This strategy worked very well in the game, but it was a certain simplification in relation to reality, because not always the best action movies consisted of heroes whose main attribute was overall physical fitness. The best action films in history, apart from the interesting hero, also had interesting villains – and often side characters with different characteristics that gave them uniqueness. In addition, placing X characters with similar characteristics in the movie strongly limits the target audience to lovers of a particular genre.

In the next version… Improved artificial intelligence (AI)

In the last few versions, despite the emergence of new mechanic, computer players are driven by artificial intelligence does not use them. Embarrassing so to make up for the backlog and slightly expand the game in this aspect. Fortunately, I was able to spare some time to expand the logic, you will use the computer players. So here is a brief overview of the changes in this aspect of the game, which significantly influenced the entire game.

In the next version… Universes

When in the Movie Business have emerged sequels part of the players was a bit disappointed that they ran out of space on the universes and the ability to make crossover. Do not put them as types of sequels because, in my opinion, this is a slightly different case. An additional problem was logic, that would hide them, because how the universe would affect the profits of movies? The problem was distribution of accents, when in the production mix for example. Heroes 4 completely different series, of varying popularity, fans etc. The assumption that increased to automatically base fans is too easy, because each player would do in the movies regardless of whether it makes sense or not…
