Tilting At Publishers: Tilted Mill Go It Alone

'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.
