The Movies is a "life simulation" game that lets players build and control
their own Hollywood motion picture studio. Players create unique
mini-trailer-style movies choosing everything from script selection and the
hiring of cast and crew, to film production and premieres. Gamers build their
entertainment empire by making hit movies, researching and introducing the
newest cinematographic technologies and nurturing the biggest stars. Created by
renowned developer Peter Molyneux of Lionhead Studios, The Movies takes life
simulation to a whole new era, and as such is set to be a ground-breaking smash
Beginning in the 1920s, gamers start with a dirt lot and race to the year 2020,
researching and introducing every technological advance from colour to computer
graphics and beyond. Players build, use and re-use thousands of sets, props,
locations and costumes, and break new ground to achieve movie mogul status.
Gamers handpick which projects they want to green-light and which scripts need
rewrites. Players can remake the films they love or create an all-new
Players can make every kind of film, from action flicks to teen comedies,
suspense films, thrillers and horror movies. Gamers can explore different film
genres to please audiences and express their creative vision. Players can either
go for a box-office smash, or try pleasing the critics and winning awards. The
Movies gives gamers the opportunity to be a mega-rich bigshot, calling the tunes
and hiring and firing the best. Players will choose between listening to the
stars' tantrums and ridiculous requests, or showing them who's boss by crushing
their dreams and ruining their careers as they create a distinctive Hollywood
legacy and earn their place as a silver screen legend.
Ultimately, gamers are judged by the movies they create. Players can post their
short movies to the Web for the world to see or e-mail them directly to friends.
