Today I would like to officially announced that Showtime! 2 is in development and due for a late-2015 release :) Over the coming months I will be posting a dev-blog to keep you all updated on the progress of the game as well as take in any feedback of what you guys would like to see. If you head over to the DevBlog page now you can check out some of the pre-Alpha screenshots of the game. I hope you all like what you see and I look forward to showing it off more soon :) Cheers!

Well it's all been leading up to this, a cumulative update in version 1.4. Not a massive amount of new content, but I have been listening to player feedback and have addressed the concerns people have been having that even bad movies with mega budgets can still rack in big $$$ -- so I have spent a great deal of time with the sales code and rewritten a big chunk. I think a nice balance has been found which will make the game a little more challenging, encouraging players to put more effort into their movies and not just their budgets.
We've also added 20 new character avatars to the game so you can put a face to the name in a lot of cases, including everyone's favourite: Conroy Clever :) And I've also gone through fixing a few minor bugs here and there and a couple of grammatical errors, etc.
Thanks again for all the support and love the game has received over 2014! I realise it's not a game made for everyone, but I am pleased to see the majority of people who enjoy these text-based sim games continue to play and enjoy Showtime. I'm looking forward to sharing with you all my plans for the series in 2015.
Wishing you all a safe and happy holidays and a killer new year. Cheers!

Apologies for the lack of updates lately. Version 1.3.4 was recently released on Steam. Unfortunately I recently had a PC crash and lost a great deal of data, including the setup files for Showtime! I do have backups though and I had to retrieve them from an external source which took a long time (snail mail). So apologies for the delay. Today I have put together the 1.3.5 version of the game though for all to download. For a complete list of changes in versions 1.3.4-5 please click here. Enjoy!

As of two days ago Showtime! is now available on Steam. I have been working tirelessly to make sure the launch wen't as well as could be expected but there have been some hiccups with various in-game issues. I've been working to fix those as fast as possible and over the past couple of days have released 2 new patches for Showtime - versions 1.1.3 and the latest 1.1.4. I'm sure another patch is just around the corner. It can now be downloaded from either Steam or this website.
I've had a lot of requests for Steam keys over the past few days for existing customers of Showtime. I am happy to provide the first 50 customers with Steam keys but that is my capped allocation. If you would like one please send a copy of your Showtime invoice reciept to email@example.com and I will get back to you as soon as I can. A receipt number and name are required. I simply dont have the time to go hunting through hundreds of invoices for certain names at this stage and I apologise in advance. I will post an update once all keys have been allocated. For those unfamiliar with Steam it is essentially the same game its just accessed through the Steam client instead of the desktop. Thanks!

Exciting news - I have a new game out today for the Android market! "Impact Event" is an arcade space specifically designed for use on mobiles and tablets. It's only a small title, something I've been working on over the past couple of months as a side project to Showtime updates. I wanted to make a game you could pick up quickly and is reminiscent of old arcade games like Space Invaders. The game is available for AUD$1.50 right now.
To check it out and download today head over to the Play Store on your android device or go here to check it out. I created a game page for it too so you can read up on it and see some more screenshots here. I hope you all enjoy it!

I have another small update available for the game. I am always hard at work weeding out even the most obscure of bugs so I do apologise for the frequency of which I release updates, but this will probably be the last one for a while. Click here to see the full list of changes. I recommend everyone upgrade to this latest version.
For those running older versions of the game (prior to the 1.1 update) please make sure you run the full installer. An 'update' installer is also available for those who only downloaded Version 1.1 or 1.1.1 a few days ago. Thanks!

I thought I would share a really cool mega mod pack user Corwin86 has put together for Showtime over on the Osiris Facebook forums. Unfortunately I couldn't include real world talent with the game due to copyright laws, but it doesnt stop players from adding their own to the editor and so Corwin86 and others have now created their own packs for the game. This one in particular includes:
It also includes over 2,700 portraits as well. All credit must go to Corwin86 -- he's put a lot of work into this mod pack and if you would like to thank him you can head over to the Osiris Games Forum on Facebook. I'm sure he'd appreciate the feedback! :) To download the mod click here. You can also combine it with any of the other mods currently available by heading over to the Showtime game page.
