So you fancy yourself as a bit of a movie star do you? Well the M.U.D. TV character editor is your way into the spotlight!
The M.U.D. TV character editor allows you to create and customize your own character! Design your own in-game characters by changing their features, hair and clothes, then give them suitable attributes to give them real personality. Choose from creativity, intelligence, ego, attractiveness, humor and seriousness traits, but remember that each attribute will affect your character depending on the task at hand. Finally choose a name that best describes your newly created character, save them and they are ready to go into the game!
You can make characters to look like your friends or even your favorite movie and TV stars. Each character can be saved into a separate file so you can share them with other players and make a guest appearance in their latest shows!
The film editor gives you the chance to recreate your favorite shows, TV series or movies! Or, if you are feeling inspired, you can even make brand-new ones.
Choose between series, shows and movie categories and then pick a genre for your show from eight sub-categories including action movie, drama series, quiz shows, crime movies and cooking shows. Decide on the quality of your show between 1 and 6 stars and give it a catchy title to attract the viewers! The film editor also allows you to import characters from the character editor and make them the protagonists in your films or shows. Random characters will be cast in the roles if you donít have a suitable actor available.
As with the character editor, you can save your shows and films to separate files and share them with your friends and air them on their TV stations.
To get gamers ready for M.U.D. TV, Kalypso Media will be releasing the editor tools before launch so that they can get to work creating characters, movies and shows that are ready to import into the game or share with others.
To see how the editors are shaping up take a look at the new screenshots on the official website at www.mud-tv.com
Itís Mad! Itís Ugly! Itís Dirty! Itís M.U.D. TV!
M.U.D. TV is currently under development by Kalypso Mediaís own studio Realmforge and will be available on PC in March 2010
