Empire TV Tycoon is a game in which you manage a TV channel and fight for audiences taking decisions that will project your channel to fame and fortune.You will decide the content of your channel, select advertisers, hire workers, make your own productions, hire actors, and engage in much more activities! It's inspired by games such as Mad TV, Mud TV, and other movie management games, with a modern approach on how to produce custom content such as movies or tv-shows.

Empire TV is a big corporation having serious losses, and It can't afford to maintain three channels, but only one, any longer. You have been hired to lead one of the channels to achieve fame and be the one that remains.


  • Manage your channel and determine the best content for the current audience. Also, increase your fame and win the war between the three Empire TV channels.
  • Each audience group has its likes and dislikes. Make them happy and your fame will increase; make them sad and your channel will sink into the TV deeps.
  • Buy and sell movies or TV shows that suit your audience best. Also, you can select your favorite movies from about 1000 movies.
  • Don't be tempted to use illegal content. While pirated movies are cheaper, the risk is high and police is always watching.
  • If you can help the advertisers to reach your audience, you will win some money. But be careful: Sometimes, their requests and deadlines are hard to fulfill.
  • Hire workers who will help you to execute different tasks, and each one with their own level and skill.
  • Make your own productions, movies or tv-shows. Distribute your resources effectively for each available movie genre.
  • Enjoy a personalized and randomized movie script for each production. Lots of combinations for each movie genre.
  • Hire actors, knowing their own strengths and weakness, to act in your production. Do your best to keep them happy and utilize their skills efficiently.
  • As the director, you will have to take prudent decisions during the production, and these decisions will affect the final quality of the production.Submit your productions to the industry awards in different categories. Try to be the best and win glory and fame.
  • And discover many secrets and other surprises related to the film industry in the last 50 years.

Empire TV Tycoon reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
I am the Beginning because this Is the most important thing for many: Empire TV Tycoon Is for me the first real Alternative to MAD TV which is Also Fun. And because it is the only Serious Competitor in the genre as a Homage to or MAD TV, I will compare it to it in the Following. But to say one thing who loves MAD TV will like THIS Game. Pros:-Developers who respond to Bug reports and Community stimulation and evolve the SPiel Based on the Suggestions + Gameplay that is close to that of MAD TV + Sinvolle extension of MAD TV game Mechanics + similar HUD as with MAD TV (It fits easily and others Alternatives have just made it worse) + own Series and Movies + no bombings (Which has always annoyed me at MADT TV) Cons:-lacks The MAD TV humor-no descriptive texts for the Movies-It could be a tick more complicated-Division channels Should have more Impact on Audiences. -Creating your own Series and Films could be more elaborate ... For example, how much Budget does production have in which Areas ... The comparison for Mad TV automatically occurs in a Game in the TV Managment Area. why? The Answer is simple. For me, no Game that came after that reached the Fun of Mad TV. Empire TV is the first thing that comes close to Mad TV ... And that's what I say as someone who still has MAD TV on the Hard Drive and plays it more or less regularly again. Where other Games have added interesting Mechanics but have forgotten the fun of the Game, Empire TV Tycoon Hits a good Mix. It takes over THE Game flow known from MAD TV and adds slightly deep Game Mechanics, such as Different Audiences, a better and more seinper option for Own Productions, a rudimentary upgrade function of its Transmitter, and adjustable Personnel. Here Empire Tycoon Always remains quite easy to become without Casula. The really active developers who also react very quickly to bug reports and suggestions in the Steam Forum and Continuously develop the Game are particularly noteworthy. As a Criticism, I have to cite the EMPIRE TV Tycoon missing the MAD TV typical Humor and could offer some more deep Or 24 Years of naich Mad TV more elaborate Game Mechanics. The beautiful one on the one Hand is that you can create Division channels that others have but little to no Effect on the moving In audience ... Why do I, as a Horror Channel, have to serve Children as a Target Group? In Addition, the Computer opponents cannot fail and in addition, the MAD TV and "Successor" played really intensively for me, even at a high Degree Of Difficulty, were very simple, and each other cite that they are for sies, even at the lowest Degree of difficulty, Very hard.

When the app loads a new game, it crashes and it's impossible to play. Please fix it! Please send your detailed bug report to [email protected] including all info about the device you are using - thank you!

A French version very understandable despite some small errors of translations. No stability problems on iPad air 2! This game is a real nuggo! And why not add more movies? And then would it be possible to start the days earlier?

A perfect adaptation of the PC game. I Was expecting a version for my iPad since I could try it and the truth is that I have not been disappointed at all. If you are looking for a strategy game with great doses of replayability (and no connection required), don't hesitate to try it!

The game looks to be interesting but the game bug too and the screen turns black and suddenly one is forced to leave the application, thanks to set the pronoun as quickly as possible. Thank you very much! Regarding the bug, please contact [email protected] and describe the most detailed bug possible so that we can fix it.

Very good Game in Reference to MAD-TV without online coercion! I think The Depth of play with different Target Groups is very good! At the Price, I considered a little bit, but I didn't regret it. I have been playing for many Hours over now 2 Weeks without Crashes. The entire Game can be played in German. There are heaps of blockbuster real titles included in the Game. A really great Game!!!

It's a really super Game, a lot of Fun like the MadTV of the day, but all the Fun is undone by this stupid Elevator bug, which gets stuck on the Ground floor every 2-3 Play days and you can't continue playing. Very very annoying and a shame for every Penny if that's not even fixed!!! (Don't you test your Games first?!) Therefore, there are only 2 Stars, because like a Demo only partially playable on Time until this Bug comes back ... Please contact our support So we can check your Message.
