In the next version: Cult Characters and set update 65

After I informed you that in the next version you will be able to add own monsters, I have received signals that you would also like to be able to add cult characters directly from the game. It is true that here the functionality is not so critical (cult characters can be easily added from MovieStats) but after thinking about it, I found that in total why not give you such an option as well.

In the next version, some quests, interviews and press conferences will be expanded with a new way of interacting. They will be open answers, that is, those where you yourself will have to / can type any text.

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.

Poll: Soundtrack to the game

Some players once asked me why there is no music in the game. The answer was pretty obvious as an indie game without a budget it was difficult to get enough music to use in the game. In addition, there would have to be a lot of it so that it would not get bored with players quickly during several hour-long sessions with the game. Another problem would be the variety of players' tastes. So in the end it was better to give it up completely.

Today, however, the possibilities are much greater.

Have fun!

Movie Business 2020 Update 5

Unfortunately, it was not possible to prevent errors in the last update. Hence the need for another version. It corrects two main problems. Not being able to create continuation other than the sequel (in some cases), and improving the game balance (unfortunately I underestimated some parameters and the game turned out to be too simple).

Podziękowania dla Jakub and Bartosz za pomoc w identyfikacji problemów.

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.
