The ins and outs of...

Monday, February 14, 2005
Children of the Nile is a game with many hidden possibilities. Whenever you think your city can't run any more efficient, you discover something that can still be improved. Therefore, we decided to write a series of articles about the various aspects of a city. Starting with Prestige and Food and Farming, we intend to write about, among other things, Religion, the Educated Elite or perhaps something else you're asking for.

For now, I hope you will enjoy the articles that have been released and that they are of a help to you.

It took eighteen years to build...

Saturday, February 05, 2005
...so Tilted Mill and Sega offer eighteen Children of the Nile t-shirts up for grabs, nine of these will be available for contestants from the US and Canada who have been playing for a while now, and another nine for those who just got the game.

The rules are simple.
We want you to play Men-nefer and see how quickly you can build that Great Pyramid. Time is the only thing that counts, so time is all you need to concentrate upon. You have one month, i.e. till March 4th, to give this your best shot.

The difficulty you can chose freely, but we won't differentiate between hard or normal, so you probably want to pick the latter.

We will open up an additional section in the Downloads where you can upload your best attempt. Here you will be able to chose which region you are competing in (US/Canada or The World). Make sure you pick the right region because picking the wrong one will get you disqualified.

We'll keep this section hidden so you won't have to worry about other people seeing what you did, just like we do in other contests.

Who is eligeable?
Well, basically everybody is eligeable to compete. However, we feel that people from the rest of the world who already got the US version of the game (and thus havebeen playing longer) should participate in the US/Canada group. Should this change, we'll update the rules this weekend.

What else?
Not much more than wishing you happy building!

Children of the Nile released around the world!

Friday, February 4, 2005
Today is the day we all have been waiting for! For three months, players from the US have been enjoying Children of the Nile, but from today onwards, there's no one in the world who doesn't have access to the game, unless it's sold out already! The game is delivered as version 1.1, European players can get their v1.2 patch from the SEGA site. The UK version can be found here and you can also find the French, German, Italian and Spanish versions there.

A Contest?

Thursday, February 03, 2005
Rumour, from a trustworthy source, has it that there will be a Tilted Mill sponsored contest soon. I might even say very soon, to celebrate the release of Children of the Nile outside the US and Canada.
Stay tuned, as there will definitely be more news tomorrow.
And yes, this contest will be a bit of a monster...

The reason for the delay

Wednesday, February 2, 2005
I thought you would be interested in the reason for the delayed release for Europe. As you may know, Tilted Mill recently released the v1.2 patch and not only the game but the patch too must be localized before it's ready to be used. Since CotN will ship as v1.1, you will need to download the v1.2 patch after you buy it. To ensure no one in Europe will be waiting for the patch, they decided to release CotN to all of Europe simultaneously, on February the 4th.

Addition: Following an e-mail I received, I would like to add that the game will be fully playable when you buy it. SEGA just wants to make sure no one will have to wait for the latest patch after buying the game.

Update on the European release

Thursday, January 27, 2005
Tomorrow should've been a great day for many of you, but unfortunately, the release of Children of the Nile for all of Europe has been set to February the 4th. The good news is that all copies of the game will include the same bonus disk that was also delivered to people from the US who pre-ordered their copy. The disk includes art, videos and music and will even be localised.

Version 1.2 Patch released

Saturday, January 8, 2005

Tilted Mill have finished their second patch for Children of the Nile. Weighing over 37 MB it fixes the issues listed below. I added a link to the patch on the downloads central, you do not need to have the v1.1 patch installed for the v1.2 patch to work. Enjoy!

New fixes in the second patch:
  • Crash due to figures unable to attend a funeral
  • Crash caused by priest migration

  • Crash when stuck traders were robbed by raiders
  • Figures sometimes got stuck trying to board reed boats
  • Service building activation and visitation text was not updating properly
  • Accessibility keys were not functioning properly within the game and menus

  • Buildings with docks (barge landings, quays, shipwrights) should now be easier to place
  • Nobles engaged in leisure hunting were sometimes unable to reach certain targets
  • Charioteer attack animation updated
  • Children sometimes skating instead of walking
  • World level merchant transaction headings were improperly labeled

  • Four digit prestige values did not display properly

New Year's Eve

Friday, December 31, 2004

Outside I can hear a continuous banging, ratling and fizzing. Sounds most of us hear only in games. I know it is the sounds of fireworks, but I can 't help realise there are people on this earth who hear those same sounds every eve. Not just New Year's Eve and who know they are not the sounds of kids and youngsters having fun, but the relentless, chilling sounds of people killing other people. Killing them for their religion, their ideas. Killing them because they are different.

If I could chose a wish to come true this year, I'd wish that more people could relate those sounds to games. Not to real life.

May 2005 be a good year for you and yours.

Christmas Eve

Friday December 24, 2004

Any chance of a White Christmas seems lost in this part of the world, while on the other side of it, there seems to be so much snow people will have to change whatever they were planning to do tomorrow. Another part of the world will be celebrating on the beach, while yet a different part will only know snow from the stories, the books, and the movies.

Still all these people will be celebrating; spending time with friends and family, enjoying eachothers company. I think we can all celebrate Christmas, no matter what our beliefs as these days any day celebrating life and friendship is a good day.

May you have a Merry Christmas, regardless of the weather and 2005 be a good year for all of you and all of us.

Stupid AI

Saturday, December 18, 2004

Over at the Tilted Mill boards, Jeff Fiske, Design Director of Tilted Mill, has given an overview of how the AI works, in particular the AI of labourers, overseers and scribes. I thought some of you might be interested in reading it, perhaps it'll solve some problems you're experiencing with constructing and mining. Read it here.

And while you're there, don't forget to check out the new bonus track, which cannot be found in the game! Along with that, they've revamped the music downloads page so you can download the entire soundtrack more easily. You can find both here.

Early Christmas present?

Wednesday December 15, 2004

The last lesson has been posted, the testing is done, the feedback has been processed: Matt Zimmitti is done with Akhetaten.

Akhetaten is the new scenario released by Tilted Mill, it's a sandbox scenario including military, interconnected trade and a series of monuments for the player to build along the Nile. Most interesting perhaps, is that it served as a tutorial for those who're interested in designing their own maps, but couldn't get the hang of the editor. To read all seven lessons, visit the TM Editing Forum.

If you have been designing along with Matt, you might have finished your first scenario by now. If it's done, don't forget to upload it to the Downloads Central, where players will be able to post comments and reviews and where you will be able to keep track of how often your scenario has been downloaded!

The First Scenario Is Submitted

Wednesday December 1, 2004
Our very own EmperorJay has been spending hours and hours with the editor to create the first episode in what will be a series on the adventures of Djadao, envoy of Khufu.

The scouts of the Pharaoh picked a perfect spot for your outpost. It's close to an oasis, close to the sea, it has rich floodplains and still it's conveniently close to the needed resources. Pharaoh has heard rumours, rumours about upcomming revolts. The peace of Egypt must not be disturbed and if it is, Egypt must be prepared. Send the Pharaoh 40 kopeshes, so he can equip his army. Send the Pharaoh 50 jugs of Turquoise, so his supply will be sufficient even when war does break out. To raise Pharaoh´s prestige, send 3 Large statues for his magnificient tomb.
I'm sure you will enjoy this map.

Getting to know the Editor and CotN reviews

Tuesday, November 30, 2004
Matt Zimmitti, a Tilted Mill employee, has been ordered to design a new Children of the Nile scenario. He thought it would be a good idea to explain everything he does. Today he posted his first lesson, it's about preparing the map, carving the first elevations and painting some terrain tiles. We'll keep you updated on how the scenario evolves! Read the first lesson here.

Also, note that we've collected some reviews for Children of the Nile that are out there on the web, you can find them here.

Children of the Nile in stores now!

Tuesday, November 9, 2004
Some of our forum members were so fortunate to find a copy of Children of the Nile early in stores, but today Children of the Nile should be available nationwide in the US.

Press Statement:

NEW YORK, NY, November 9, 2004 - Myelin Media today announced Immortal Cities: Children of the NileTM for PC is available at retail stores nationwide. Developed by Tilted Mill Entertainment under the direction of Chris Beatrice (designer of the PC smash-hit Pharaoh), Children of the Nile is the first in the Immortal Cities series of groundbreaking 3D city/society builders.

"Chris Beatrice and his team have genuinely evolved the city building category in a way that we believe will expand the market beyond some of the previous successes this team has been part of" says Gene Mauro, CEO of Myelin. "They did this ahead of schedule and on budget, something to be extremely proud of with such an ambitious project."

"Immortal Cities is the city-building game that I always wanted to make," said Chris Beatrice, president of Tilted Mill Entertainment. "We were able to incorporate many innovative elements that have never been done before. The ability to roam a living and breathing virtual city and interact on a personal and emotional level with your citizens is both unique and captivating, and we feel players will enjoy this fresh new experience from a popular genre that has not evolved as quickly as other genres have."

Sega also released a statement on the release of Children of the Nile in Europe. The 4th of February will be the release date for the English version, while the rest of Europe will get the game the 28th of January. Read it here.

I can hear a bell ringing...

Friday, November 5, 2004
If there is anyone here that doesn't know VitruviusAIA or Vaia as we like to call him, he or she must have wandered onto the site within the last few minutes.

So most, if maybe not all of you know the amount of work and dedication he's had to the site(s) in the past years. Maintaining the wonderful census on several sites, his table wizardry, tireless game help and lots of content work on Emperor and Pharaoh Heaven are just a few examples of this.

Well, it's gonna change.

I've asked him and he's willing to do even more work for us, and to make it so much easier or him to do that work ( not to mention to show my appreciation to his work *wink*) he'll be trading in those stubby little cherub wings for a brand new pair of sleek and powerful angel wings.

His biggest new task will be helping us getting Children off the Nile Heaven off to the ground, but he may also find himself making those necessary changes to the older CB heavens.

Yes, you may congratulate him.

Sad news for Europe

Thursday, November 4, 2004
Tilted Mill and SEGA today announced that Children of the Nile will not be released in Europe until late January, perhaps even not until February. The reason behind this: "so that product awareness can be increased". Read more about it here.

Fortunately, the November calendars have been released and as you may notice, Tuesdays are no longer marked as update days. This is because the official site will now be updated more often.

The wait will soon be over!

Tuesday, October 26, 2004
Tilted Mill and Myelin Media today announced that their first project has gone gold*! If everything goes well, Children of the Nile will be in stores in the United States from November 9th. Unfortunately, no official information has been released about a release date for the rest of the world.

Immortal Cities: Children of the Nile is the first and only strategy game where citizens, who behave like living, independent beings, are the primary resource.

In Immortal Cities, you assume the role of Pharaoh, divinely appointed by the gods to lead the people of ancient Egypt, uniting them as you elevate your status and strive to become a supreme and god-like ruler. You design and build glorious cities in which hundreds of seemingly real people live and work in an interconnected societal web, each facet of their lives played out in vivid detail. For more information, please take a look around the official site and if you want more detailed information, look around here!

*If the game has gone gold, it means that a so called master disc has been sent to the publisher, who then puts the game through a final round of quality assurance. If the last check-up is done and the result is satisfying, the copies that will be available for sale are made.

New article on Children of the Nile

Monday, October 25, 2004
WorthPlaying.com have released an interview with Jeff Fiske. It's a very interesting article, it gives you a good idea what the game actually is about. And if you're still doubting if Children of the Nile is the game you want to buy next month:

Q : Ok, so what’s the One Big Reason that people should go out and try Children of the Nile?

It has been 4 years since our last city builder and we have moved the genre ahead in a huge leap. All the classic City Building elements are there, but your people seem real this time, making it much more fun and much cooler when you build a large living city.

Last, one of the remaining songs from the soundtrack is available for download, it's called Festival Dance. Check out everything here.

A new article on Cats in Egypt

Thursday, September 16, 2004

It began with felis silvestris libyca, or the African wild cat, with tawny yellow-gray fur and striped markings which provided ideal camouflage among the desert rocks and sand. This was a larger cat than the little ones of today, and a predator, not a scavenger. Occasionally among the multi-colored cats of modern Egypt, there are throw backs. The ancient Egyptian cat was the ancestor of many of our cats and represents one of the few remaining links with the ancient Egyptians. The animal has remained essentially the same and so are our feelings, prejudices and attitudes: we have that in common with those people of the past...

This is the introduction for the article Cats in ancient Egypt by Miut, who was so kind to write it for us. Covering four pages with wonderful information, the articles explains almost everything you ever wanted to know about the history of cats. You can find the it here.

Keep watching this here to see what more Miut has in store for you!
