Indie Royale Crams Dream Machine Into Stuffing Bundle

By Adam Smith on November 19th, 2012.

The Indie Royale returns with The Stuffing Bundle, which makes me think of stockings brimming with gifts rather than breadcrumbs and sage shoved inside a carcass cavity. My headline-dominating opinion is that the three released chapters of The Dream Machine are the stand-out content and on this very site you can read what John and I said about the game in the dwindling days of 2011. The remainder of the stocking is filled with Children of the Nile, Anomaly: Warzone Earth, Puzzle Agent 2 and Adventure Apes and the Mayan Mystery. As I write this, minimum price is £2.99.

Child Of Children Of The Nile

By Alec Meer on October 29th, 2008.

(Clearly I’m in a tautological headline mood today).

They’ve only just put out Hinterland, but already Tilted Mill have released a rosy-cheeked new baby into the world: a free to play, in-browser rethink of their much-adored historical management/society simulator Immortal Cities: Children of the Nile. The rethink being, specifically, that this previously singleplayer game is now a full-blown MMO.

Gordian Yes! Children Of Nile Add-On

By Kieron Gillen on September 12th, 2008.

It's not istanbul, it's constantinople. Actually, it isn't.

While we await Hinterland with interest, it’s not all Tilted Mill have been up to. We reported about the updated version of Children of the Nile – but they’ve now released a a mini-campaign add on pack based around ruling Alexandria. It’s available to buy from Stardock and you’ll get change from six dollars enough to buy something which costs one dollar. You’ll need the Enhanced Edition to play, but if you own an old copy of Children you can patch it in. And if you don’t, you can buy it from a load of Direct Download places, including Steam (Or just play the demo).

In other news: I walked up to Alexandra Palace last night, which was lovely.

Tilting At Publishers: Tilted Mill Go It Alone

By Kieron Gillen on May 29th, 2008.

'Nice jugs' 'It's a vase, you sexist twit' 'I'm not sexist, I love women. Also, breasts' 'Oh, fuck off'

João Melo points us at this somewhat interesting news. Big Download report that they plan to self-publish their future games online. Having got the rights back, their first game will be an improved version of City-Builder Children of the Nile (Who I recall I have a postmortem of lying around somewhere…). The improvements will be included in a new demo, and available as a patch to all previous customers. This is only the start- they promise all new PC titles before the end of the year. With their history in making management games – though Sim Cities: Societies disappointed us – you suspect they’re following in the steps of strategy-specialists Stardock in realising that a significant strategy-audience can be reached direct.

EDIT: Actually, this is also worth noting. Tom Chick talking about how lovely Sim City Societies is with the latest patch.
