w00t! It’s finally here! I picked up my copy at lunch today, and I shall hopefully pollute the web with my first creation tonight. Anyone else going to get it? If so, we’ll have to share links to our movies - I’d love to see what other dopers come up with. The general public has started uploading their films to the official community site, and they’re usually hilariously bad (so bad they’re good in some cases).
The site is here, btw: http://movies.lionhead.com
It’s very busy too, which is a nice surprise. This isn’t exactly a no-name game or anything, but I didn’t think the community would be quite as active as it is already. There are only a handful of movies posted so far, but they all have hundreds of reviews from other users, suggesting that a lot of people are waiting for their copies of the game to arrive.
For those who haven’t heard of the game it’s a sim/tycoon type deal where you have to run a movie studio starting in the 20s and keep it going to modern times, making movies along the way. You can also play in “sandbox” mode and just make whatever movie you want, even using your own script and recorded voices. I’ve been waiting for this game for years and it looks like it won’t disappoint. You can learn more about it at the link above (at the top of the linked page there’s a banner that leads to the official site).
So who’s getting it?
