Overview edit · view history

Tilted Mill was established in 2002 by Chris Beatrice and Peter Haffenreffer, veteran game developers from Impression Games, known for their historical strategy games. They left Impressions prior to its closure in April 2004.

Tilted Mill continues to focus on the same kind of games, with Immortal Cities: Children of the Nile in 2004, and Caesar IV in 2006. Ironically, many of the employees had been working on the previous Caesar games at Impressions, and Caesar IV was published by Vivendi, the same company that had closed the Impressions studio in 2004.

In 2007 the studio contributed to the long-running SimCity franchise with SimCity Societies and the expansion pack Destinations.

In 2008, a enhanced re-release of Children of the Nile called Children of the Nile (Enhanced Edition) was made available, followed in September by Hinterland, a fantasy strategy game based on completely new IP, and in November of that year Mosby's Confederacy, a strategy game set during the American Civil War.
