The action takes place in the middle of the golden age of Hollywood, in the 80s of the last century and goes through the years to the present day. Players start with a small team of movie enthusiasts. Equipped with very rudimentary equipment, the team aims to make the studio grow and thus gain notoriety in the increasingly demanding market.

Over the decades, both the film crews and the equipment themselves have been improved and technology has become increasingly important in the process of creating a film.

"Our team is delighted with the development of our first game,” stated Niklāvs Strads, founder of Odyssey Studios. "Our goal has always been to capture the excitement and action that lurks behind the filming of a movie.
