My 3rd novel wasn’t meant to be a sequel to the 2nd novel in the first place. Then something happened. Characters began to beg to be included in the story. Thus, a sequel was born.

FameTown: How To Be The Movie Celebrity

Submitted by on June 29, 2011 – 19:06One Comment

If you’ve been following up on my Project 2011, you will realize that one of the pointers states ‘Play not more than 3 Facebook games at one time’ – pointer 59. So I’m particular when it comes to Facebook game because if we don’t restrict ourselves from too many apps, every 5-minute spent on each app robs away the standard 24-hour we have each day.

So I’m pretty much still hooked on CSI Crime City as I am a CSI fan. Then I dropped a couple of Facebook games in order to pursue my latest craze: Scrabble Online. Today I decided to try out the latest Facebook game: FameTown. It’s a roleplaying game where you start-off as a D-list actor/actress. You’ll have to work your way through movie production, events, publicity and gossips to reach to the top of the industry.

I’ve only been exploring for the past 6 hours, but here are some tips I can share for you to be on top of the game – make the best movies! The best movie means you make the most money out of it, gain the most experience points and earn the most fans. To do that, you’ll need to…

Hire the best assistants to enable you to gain the max from each movie. Each assistant you hire adds a small amount to the things you gain including experience, money and fans. So make sure you’ll constantly hiring the top-notch assistant as they influence your scoring.

Skill up! For whatever genre movies you are producing, make sure that you have skilled up accordingly to gain maximum points. The higher the upgrade, the more you gain in terms of fans, experience and money.

Match the needle perfectly before the movie is being produced. There will be a wheel spinning that requires you to click stop at the right time to match the needle on the required position perfectly. The more accurate it is, the higher points you receive. The trick is to click stop the moment the needle reaches the first steel edge. That should land you a perfect fit.

Release your movie on time! If you release it a long time after it is being produced, you earn so much less or nothing at all. So the best way is to release it the moment production is completed. That means setting an alarm if you have to in order to be reminded of the time, especially when you are not in front of your computer all the time.

If you have some tips of your own, feel free to share. Now go get famous at FameTown!
