Kalypso Media Announces M.U.D. TV
Fed up with the same formulaic TV sitcoms? Is reality TV
beyond real? Think you can do a better job? This March, players can prove it
with M.U.D. TV (Mad, Ugly, Dirty Television), a new strategy simulation from
Kalypso Media USA where players call the shots as a top TV executive striving to
raise ratings and advertising revenue for their own TV network.
In the game, players are tasked with creating a TV studio,
hiring actors, staff and directors to create popular TV programming that will
propel the station up the ratings chart. But beware, as rival studios will use
every trick in the book to sabotage the station and steal its viewers, actors
and even those all important advertising dollars. Dirty tricks are not reserved
for the competition though, as players can learn their own shady maneuvers to
fight back and do whatever it takes build their TV empire!
As part of the inaugural introduction of M.U.D. TV, Kalypso
Media is releasing several new screenshots showcasing some of the crazy
characters, sets and offices found in the game. Stay tuned for more information
heading your way soon!
M.U.D. TV is being developed by Realmforge, a Kalypso Media
studio, and will be available on PC in March 2010.
