If you’ve ever watched television and said to yourself, “It would be so cool to be in the media business,” then I have just the game for you.

“TV Empire Tycoon” is a game about building a TV station from the ground up, starting as a small media entity and working your way up to becoming a huge multimedia conglomerate. It plays sort of like a “Rollercoaster Tycoon” or “Zoo Tycoon” type of game, one in which you basically just grow your business and make as much money as possible.

You’re put in charge of a news studio. It’s up to you to hire anchors and crew and even manage each show all the way down to the lighting and commercials. Your staff plays a huge role in your success, so your hiring, firing and management of your employees is a major aspect as well. Each presenter, camera operator, engineer and even makeup artist is working 24/7, and if you can’t pay them, they will go on strike, so profits are everything.

You begin by running a simple newscast show, but you can eventually expand your company to become the next NBC or CBS with cooking shows, and even reality shows. Eventually you will get “starred characters” – think Ron Burgundy – that have very specific needs to be met and believe they are extremely important to the station. They are fussy and needy, but they can easily bring huge profits. The game is an idle simulator, so you can only do so much per day by using energy, which replenishes every so often, which means you’ll have to wait to play after doing a lot of things at once.

“TV Empire Tycoon” will test your management wits for sure; much like Jack Donaghy, you must do everything in your power to make sure the show goes on and keep your people happy. It’s a huge task, but it’s an extremely fun one to take on!

“TV Empire Tycoon” is free to download on the Android and IOS stores.
