Tilted Mill


Tilted Mill Entertainment is a video game developer located in Framingham, Massachusetts. It was founded in 2001 by former Impressions Games lead designer and general manager Chris Beatrice, business manager Peter Haffenreffer, and designer Jeff Fiske.
The company employs 20 staff in design, programming, creative, and administrative roles. Tilted Mill is a reference to Don Quixote.

The designers at Tilted Mill built further on their experience from Impressions Games. Their first project was "Children of the Nile", a game with the same concept as Pharaoh but with a new game engine and enhanced graphics. After the release of this game, the company announced another sequel to the famous Caesar series, Caesar IV, and was approached by Vivendi Games to publish it. For a moment it seemed that the former relation between Impressions Games and Sierra On-Line was restored.
However Tilted Mill then developed the fifth sequel of the SimCity series, titled "Simcity Societies" (all previous titles had been developed by Maxis), which was published by Electronic Arts. On July 11, 2008 Tilted Mill then announced the creation of their first independent game entitled "Hinterland".

In 2013, Tilted Mill announced Medieval Mayor. However, no news of any kind has since been posted and it appears operations at the studio have ceased.
