In the next version: Make a star

Having had various discussions with players over the years, I have noticed that some of you are more interested in creating your own stars than creating films. Until now, the Movie Business has not entered these areas and focused mainly on film production. However, noticing the interest of some players in this element, I decided to add such mechanics to the game. I called this mechanic Create a Star and it allows you to invest in selected creators to improve their skills in selected areas. And here's what it's going to look like.

About the 2022 Edition

With the beginning of the new year, I would like to write you a few words about this year's edition of the game, i.e. the 2022 Edition.

I must admit that for a long time I was wondering if there would be the 2022 Edition at all. Unfortunately, the shortage of time, as well as several other events that may still take place at the beginning of this year, strongly questioned the possibility of conducting major works on the game.

Ultimately, I found that the 2022 Edition will appear even if it only contains an update of cult movies and other minor elements of the game (such as reviews or motives) or minor bug fixes.

However, all indications are that a few novelties will probably appear in the game. There won't be too many of them, but they may be interesting for some players.

As usual, I would like to do the premiere before the Oscars, unless some serious random turmoil occurs. Therefore, longer texts describing the most important new functionalities should appear soon.

And for now, I wish you all the best in the New Year.

Let’s play Movie Business 2

As none of the famous youtubers recorded let’s play video about Movie Business I decided to make up for this huge shortcoming :). This film was made on the one hand because there was no similar video so far, and on the other hand because recently on Discord there were people who said that the game was too difficult. So I wanted to show that it is not trivial, but you can get out of all the troubles somehow :). And since life writes the best scripts, the movie from a long fragment of the game turned out to be a real thriller. I do not want to reveal too much about the plot of this production, but it does not start too well, during the game I have to face many unexpected obstacles and use many elements available in the game to get out of trouble.

The game took over 2 hours and you can find it on the official game channel.

The video is recorded in English and in the full post you will find details of what you will find in it.

Director's cut: Movie Business in numbers

From the cycle Director’s cut today a post on my personal blog about the analysis of statistical data of players' movies. This is an extended version of the post that appeared on the Movie Business website, containing statistics about the players' films from the 2020 Edition. Extended, because it also contains information about the players themselves, specifically about the countries and cities they come from. If you have not read the previous post or you are interested in where other players come from, please visit Tomiga Blog for full article (English speakers will need to change their language – option in the menu on the right).

 

Screenwriter outsourcing

One of the proposals that has been scrolling among players for many years was the opportunity to hire an external screenwriter to create a script for you. In the next edition there will be such an option, although maybe in a slightly different form than some would like.

In the next version: Custom Monsters

One of the novelty that appeared in the 2020 Edition game were Monsters. For the record, the monsters allowed us to change the pictures of the actors in our film into pictures of monsters when the name of the hero sounded like a monster that we wanted to include in the film. That is, if the character played by X was called Dracula, instead of photo X there was an image of the most famous vampire.

Otrzymałem głosy że niektórzy mieli problem z wczytaniem dużych zapisów stanu gry. W tej wersji udało się nieco odchudzić zapis (o ok 10 MB). Dajcie znać jeżeli wciąż będziecie mieli problemy z odczytaniem zapisów stanów gry.

Have fun!
