Do You Have What it Takes to Conquer the Japanese Entertainment Industry?

About Idol Manager
Created by Russian indie game developer Glitch Pitch, Idol Manager is a unique “idol game” like no other. Not even Japan has seen anything like it before. You take on the role of a producer in a small talent agency in this business simulator, where you are required to use any means necessary to achieve success in the entertainment industry.

Develop talented idols, produce CD’s that come with exclusive tickets to hand-shake events, run your own official idol group café, the options are endless. What's more, you must also of manage the relationship between the members of your idol group. You also never know when one of your idols would find herself caught up in a scandal. It is completely up to you to navigate this slippery road to the top of the entertainment industry.

Develop Talent
Recruit idols and put them through voice training sessions and dance lessons. Gather talented individuals with the right personality, style, and attributes to create THE idol group of your visions. You are in charge of everything, from what members post on social media, to their concert outfits.

Produce CD's
Produce a single or album that fits your vision, take control of lyrical directions, music style, as well as handpick the leader for your idol group. Take care not to overspend though, as that could bring grave consequences to your talent agency.

Promotional Activities
An idol’s responsibilities exceed far beyond your imaginations. Photoshoots, magazine and TV appearances, as well as internet live shows are all important revenue streams.

An Endless Variety of in-game Events
Scandals, staged TV programs, disharmony between group members, you name it. You are the one who must deal with all of it. Whether you, your idol groups, and talent agency sink or swim rests entirely on you, and you alone.
