What's new in the next update

Update 4 to 2020 Edition of Movie Business 2 is coming in great strides. So far, I have not written extensive text on such versions, which most often contained only bug fixes and minor improvements. This time, however, I made an exception, because the next update contains some new features about which I would like to write you a few words.

Like the last time, the text was published in two places:

I invite you to read and comment.

P.S Remember that you can find more details about the game in the Director’s cut

In the next version… Intensification of advertising

The next update is fast approaching time so for the first leaks what you will find in it. Among the ideas you have suggested to me, there is often the issue of trailers. Well, you would like to be able to create and release trailers for your movies. In general, I'm not a fan of too much micro management, which is why until now, not outright, trailers were hidden under the option of a marketing campaign. It was simply assumed that if a player during the campaign chose TV or TV Sat then such a trailer for the film will be created. One thing, on the other hand, in terms of advertising that was missing was the fact that just before the film's release, marketing efforts were invigorated. I decided to combine these two requirements and create what I called intensification of advertising

Director's cut: Whats new in Edition 2020 of Movie Business

According to tradition, just before the release of the next large edition of the game, I prepared a detailed text on the news and changes introduced in it. For the first time, the text was published in two versions:

This is due to the fact that automatic translation on the blog does not always cope with the nuances of the Polish language.

Even if you have followed all the texts about the 2020 Edition carefully on the official website, it is worth reading this text because there are several updates and things that I have not mentioned yet.

The link to the post as usual will be added to the Director’s cut.

I invite you to read.

Biznes Filmowy Gameplay Trailer

I have heard the regret of some users about the fact that the Movie Business does not have a trailer showing the gameplay. Until now was available only “Cinematic” trailer With the premiere of the 2020 Edition soon, I decided to prepare a new trailer, this time presenting elements of the gameplay.

I invite you to the screening.

Jak się podoba.. lajkujcie… jak nie, przesyłajcie swoje uwagi i komentarze 😉

How to play Movie Business online

Biznes Filmowy nie posiada opcji grania zdalnie przez sieć i nie ma jej w najbliższych planach, niemniej w ramach testowania edycji 2020 oraz ogólnoświatowej pandemii ostatnio testowałem grę ze znajomym używając zdalnego połączenie. Wykorzystaliśmy do tego darmowy (do użytku niekomercyjnego) program Teamviewer to connect to other computers. It not only allows you to share the screen but also transmits sound. It worked really well.

So if you have any friends with whom you would like to play Movie Business, and you do not have the opportunity to meet, then this is a pretty good option to play online.

P.S. Yes I know that you are already looking forward to the new version ... the tests are still ongoing it was hard… ale chyba już jest bliżej niż dalej 🙂

Video: How to add creators to Movie Business

As a lot of questions were raised about the process of adding creators to the game. I decided to prepare a tutorial in the form of video material. This is the first material recorded in English (the poll shows that this is the preferred form) so be a nice ;). Feel free to watch. Below you will also find some additional comments.

 

A few additional notes and comments.

  1. 1. if you see list of countries in Polish (as on video) just click Great Britain flag in top left corner next to MovieStats text. It should help and list will refresh to countries in English language.

  2. Pardon my French… genre to bardzo trudne słowo 😉

  3. Give me a sign if you would like to see some other material on specific topic related to Movie Business game.

  4. 4. It is possible to add person without IMDB profile. Then you need to choose No IMDB link and fill all properties (including filmography) by yourself.

  5. Before you start adding the creator prepare
    a) link imdb
    b) photos with required format.

In the next version... Scouting

Today, about one more idea before witcher inspiration. When starting the game, the player does not have enough cash resources to afford all the creators. Therefore, it often has to rely on young creators, fictional characters generated by the game. I have received voices from you that sometimes there are too few such characters. So I decided to introduce an additional option of hiring scouts looking for new talent.

Director’s cut: Inspirations 2020

I have two messages for you. Good one and ... good one but a bit in the long run. As you may remember, I recently had health problems. Do not worry looks that everything is back to normal and my mood is very good. According to the principle of "always look on the bright side of life" even during this period, you can sometimes see the positives. And in this case it is about more free time that I have recently available. Thanks to this, in addition to returning to work on the Movie Business, I could, for example, catch up on games and learn about one of the most iconic games of recent years which is… The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

In the next version... Creating profiles

Player profiles are one of the important elements of the game that allows not only to store player progress, trophies or his statistics, but also allows the use of the MovieStats website, where, among others, you can add your own suggestions of creators who would like to be in the game. Due to the development and expansion of the game's functionality, it is necessary to re-creation of the profile from time to time. Until now, it was a bit embarrassing if we already had our data in MovieStats. Now this process will be slightly easier thanks to the possibility of creating a new profile in the game, based on the existing profile in MovieStats.

In the next version… Addiction

During the game you probably happened to encounter various random events. Among them were, for example, those related to drugs. Until now, these were only mentions that resulted in at most extension of production time or possibly the need to pay a deposit. As stimulants are quite an important topic of the world of celebrities, I decided to slightly expand this aspect in the game ... and so in the next edition of the game addictions will appear.

Check out the creator's description and addiction sections…

Poll: Language versions of the promotional videos of the game

It seems to me that the marketing element of the Movie Business is somewhat neglected by me. The game is not popular enough as it could be and one of the facts is its insufficient promotion, e.g. the lack of more video materials presenting the game or selected elements of the game in a more detailed way.

In the next version... Cult scripts on the open market

Cult scripts are screenplays in Movie Business based on real films and data about them from IMDB website. They were introduced to add some flavore and immersion. It was not intended to be available for purchase for players. One player suggested the idea that you could buy an iconic scenario. Although I'm not sure if this is a good idea, this possibility will appear in the next version of the game.

In the next version... Press conferences and interviews

Some players pointed out to me that the game does not use the media aspect of Movie Business. Specifically, it was about contacting the press. In the new version, I will try to address this problem in the form of the possibility of organizing a press conference and interviews.

An example of a question in an interview after the festival.
