Hollywood Pictures

Hollywood Pictures is a strategy game based on the glamorous world of Hollywood. The game was published and developed by the German enterprise Starbyte Software and released in 1995. It is available on DOS and Amiga platforms. The player assumes the role of an ambitious individual who wants to make it big in the world of motion pictures. They are initially provided with an amount of 20,000 USD and a movie theatre with five movie halls. The player can use the money to buy five old movies which they believe can generate enough business for the next phase in the grand scheme of plans. The player can fix ticket prizes to maximize gains. Each movie hall can run five shows a day. Once sufficient funds have been generated, the player can take a leap into the world of movie production. The player gets to choose a genre and can either buy a script or create their own. Then comes the part where they get to choose actors and a director for the film they intend to produce. The player also gets to be involved in every aspect of film-making including costume design, music, choosing the locations, and film studios. The goal is to turn the first movie into a blockbuster so that the player can generate enough funds to produce the next film. The movie also needs to be critically acclaimed as it will be rated by a jury, and the outcome could be crucial to the success of the film. Hollywood Pictures provides valuable insights into the movie-making business and a glimpse into the industry beyond the glitz and glamour.
