wanted to manage your own band? Think you can
do a better job than Nasty Nigel? Now you can
prove it with the new game from Eidos Interactive
- Popstar Maker - the world’s first pop star management
game. Choose your band members from a group of
young hopefuls and then transform them into worldwide
superstars! The game is being developed by Teque
Software, UK, and is due for release this Christmas
first job as the manager is to pick your band
members, style their image and choose a name for
the band. You will then need to get them in the
studio to record some tracks. Popstar Maker contains
its very own virtual mixing studio where players
combine samples and beats to create their own
unique records. Once you have recorded a single
you must design the CD case and then release the
single into the charts. Chart day is Sunday and
only then will you know if your band are a hit
or a miss!
your first hit things will hot up and you will
have TV appearances and press interviews to arrange.
Record companies will also be hungry for a piece
of the action, so make sure you sign the right
deal. Meanwhile you will need to get the band
back in the studio to start work on the album!
Be careful to treat your band well and plan their
time with care and you’ll have a happy and motivated
band that will give it their best. Mismanage things,
work them too hard, pay them too little, or just
don’t help them achieve sufficient fame and fortune
and you’ll be heading to the dole queue faster
than you can blink.

will need to get your band ready for that crucial
first live performance. Here you will see all
your hard work pay off as you watch your group
performing the music that you recorded in front
of screaming fans! Worldwide domination is surely
within your grasp, or will you be just another
one hit wonder?

at Eidos. "The game is a perfect Christmas gift
for the younger budding Popstar generation but
also contains elements that will appeal to frustrated
starmakers of all ages."

album charts, Popstar Maker delivers it all."
