Studio Boss The Sequel
You have just been appointed the head
of a new Movie Studio and have been given 10 years to make it
the most successful studio around. You are up against seven other
computer controlled Studios all trying to be the best Studio in
the world. You are judged in three ways - most turnover, most
profit and most awards.
As the Studio
Boss you have lots of decisions to make, including: controlling
the budget, deciding what type of film you are going to make,
hiring a scriptwriter, getting the best director, trying to get
the screenplay right, negotiating with the stars, handling problems
on set, getting the post-production right and that’s all
before you worry about the cinema release. You’ve got marketing
costs, web publicity, test screenings, how many screens to show
the film on, when to hit the International markets, when to sell
it to TV, how long before you put it on DVD and much, much more!
-Turn based (each turn represents a week), yet has time pressure.
Players have around 10 minutes to make all their decisions each
turn and can end the week early if they want.
- More than one way to win. Bosses can win by being the best at
making high turnover, profitable or classic award-winning films.
- Each section of the game is designed as a ‘mini-game’
- Success is firmly in the hands of the player. Decisions they
make (and they have many to consider) always affect their box
- Covers pretty much the entire movie making experience.
- Player is up against seven other computer-controlled players.
- We keep the numbers sensible - you do not see $1,067,345 ever
in our game. Just $1M. This helps to keep the game from looking
too much like a spreadsheet.
