Feeling Orcward: Hinterland: Orc Lords

Tilted Mill's Hinterland appears to be getting an expanded retail release, unless publishers have taken to releasing joke press releases. What's yet to be properly seen is how much this expands the original game, though playing both as heroes and villains sounds like a fun addition. And it's in a box. Some people like boxes. Some people have been trapped inside them for years with…

A Sphinxing Man’s Game: Nile Online Live

Alec's written about the Beta before, but it's worth knowing that in Tilted Mill's browser-based incarnation of Children of the Nile, Immortal Cities: Nile Online has gone live. While none of RPS have had a chance to play it yet, a browser-based management/construction game with a casual bent certainly sounds far less likely to lead to soul sapping (and 4000 word post-game analysis and/or heartbreak)…

Mosby’s Confederacy: Release Impressions

The latest in Tilted Mill's attempt to release forty-two games this month continued with the release of Mosby's Confederacy their skirmish-level Civil-War Guerrilla-'em-up. I didn't post about it when it hit Steam, as there's no demo so we'd have a content-light post for a game we hadn't played. What if it was rubbish? What if it deleted your hard-drive when it looked at it? What…

Mosby’s Confederacy In Motion And Not In Motion

We've talked about Mosby's Confederacy's before. It's Tilted Mill's second product of their self-publish-online movement, after Hinterland (Which I still need to go back and play some more). Anyway, their period skirmish-level wargame has revealed some screenshots and video. Except it's not embeddable, so you're going to have to toodle off there to watch it. Man! Initial impression: A sad lack of Pangolin.

Child Of Children Of The Nile

(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.

RPS Exclusive: Hinterland Designer Diary

Tilted Mill are one of those developers who are quintessentially PC. Risen from the ashes of Impressions Games, the hugely respected studio behind the Caesar, Pharaoh and Lords of the Realm series, they coolly made their own name with their first title, Children of the Nile. Things didn't go so well when they picked up the reigns of Caesar its fourth instalment or Sim City…

Civil Ceremony: Mosby’s Confederacy Announced

The next step of Tilted Mill's plan to release games direct on the PC comes into play. After Hinterland, they've announced the tactical-scale Civil War game Mosby's Confederacy, which should also come out before the end of the year. Blimey. They're motoring. More details on this guerrilla-skirmishing randomly-generating game as they crawl out of the undergrowth. Until then, you'll find the full feature list beneath…

Out of the Wilderness: Hinterland Released!

The quietly lusted after by RPS RPG Hinterlands is now available to buy on Steam for twenty (Count 'em!) dollars.. I've just downloaded my copy, and will have a crack in the next couple of days at some point. Until then - er - decide what you make of it yourselves. Any opinions yet? Oh - while we're Steam updating, Multiwinia's also there. And some…

Gordian Yes! Children Of Nile Add-On

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…

PCG: Hinterland Preview

PCG:US have reprinted the preview of Hinterland I wrote for PCG:UK. I start like this... As excited as everyone is by Diablo III, you find yourself wondering: what else could an RPG be? Is collecting loot, side-questing, selling to shopkeepers (and repeat) the only way to do it? Hinterland is built off the same fantasy ingredients we’re used to seeing in RPGs, and you can…

Hinterlands: One To Get Behind?

That was quick. When city-builder-specialists Tilted Mill recently revealed they were pursuing a Direct-selling digital downloads model we presumed it'd be a while before we saw anything other than a remix of Children of the Nile. We were wrong. Hinterland, their first game, is apparently going to be available before the end of Summer. Which will be going some, as looking out the window into…

Tilting At Publishers: Tilted Mill Go It Alone

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…
