Moviestorm 1.4 early access now available

Moviestorm subscribers can now access the very latest version of Moviestorm, ahead of its official release. It’s been a while coming, but it’s absolutely packed with goodies.

If you’ve been following our progress behind the scenes in the development blog, you’ll already have a pretty good idea of what to expect with this release.  Here’s just a small sample of some of the new features:

  • The Dressing Room has a far more flexible and powerful interface for designing your Moviestorm characters.
  • There are new characters with morphable sliders to change the shape of different features, or even the ethnic origin and skintone.
  • Characters also have different decals for skin detail, makeup, eyebrows, beards, and much more. Some decals can even change color and be moved.
  • There are ‘Randomize’ buttons for automatically generating and adjusting a new interesting character.
  • In the Set Workshop, the inside and outside faces when placing walls are now clear.
  • There’s a new 3d ‘amber-blue’ preview option in the Cutting Room.
  • The Color Chooser has been radically enhanced, with an improved wheel and ‘Recent’ selection option.
  • Dramatic lighting has been enhanced with a ‘Tri-Directional’ lighting option.


This is still a preview release, so you’ll need a slightly different installation procedure to get it. You’ll find detailed instructions here, along with full release notes. You can, of course, continue to use your existing version of Moviestorm if you prefer, or revert to it if you find problems.

Moviestorm 1.4 will be on general release in a few weeks, and there will be new tutorials showing you how to get the best from all the new features. In the meantime, please give us your feedback and let us know what you think via the forums.
