Many of you out there love movies, but you feel you could probably do better with what's hitting movie screens. In Movie Empire, you get to decide just that. Become a movie producer and ride the waves of trends, putting out flicks that the public wants to see. In the end, one will be crowned the newest movie producer supreme. The game is back up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
Welcome to the world of Mr. Bartholomew Grumpy, the most prolific producer in Hollywood. In Movie Empire you are a junior producer working for Mr. Grumpy while competing with other players to be the heir to his throne. You do this by producing movies (a few big blockbusters or several small trash movies) and releasing them at the right time in the right market to hit trends and get awards. Don't forget to keep an eye on pleasing your boss as this will have an influence on your assets.
Movie Empire is a mix of worker placement and set collection for 1-4 players. And as Hollywood is a shark tank, you have 2 styles of play with the (completely optional!) black dossier variant, that adds a take that mechanic to the gameplay. Let the clubbing and stabbing commence!
The campaign's around 3/4 of the way to its goal with 22 days left to go.
