Using the unique city-building dynamics of Children of the Nile, players can carve out a new dynasty to rule all of Egypt, and build the greatest city of the ancient world. Each civilian in the city is a fully developed person, with wants and needs. Tend to their needs and they will work for you so that you can create a powerful empire and a lasting legacy.

"We're very happy that our ongoing partnership with Stardock has allowed us to bring another installment in this unique series to an important and highly valued audience," said Chris Beatrice, founder and president of Tilted Mill Entertainment.

It's been a bit of a wait, but Children of the Nile™ - Enhanced Edition is now available for purchase on Steam! We're thrilled to be able to bring CotN directly to gamers in this way, and to be able to maintain the kind of connection with our audience that has always been at the heart of the PC gaming experience. If you already own the original CotN, you can get the enhancements for free via the updates page.

We've also created a new game demo that features a "quick start" learning scenario, allowing new users to jump right in and start building Egyptian cities, while also showing the new features of the enhanced edition (see full list of enhancement features).

Tilted Mill remains committed to the CotN franchise, and will continue to develop the series in the coming months. Until then, enjoy the enhanced edition!

News Update
Tilted Mill is humbled by, and grateful for, the feedback we have gotten from our fans on this site and other venues, and therefore we'd like to share some exciting news with you.

The studio is currently in the process of enhancing the original CotN game for re-release very soon, and these enhancements will of course be made available to existing players free of charge. We don't want to overstate the scope of these enhancements - at this stage we are primarily focused on improving accessibility, and feedback issues, but a few new buildings / decorations have also been included (such as the 'Brickyard,' which allows you to quickly and easily place large amounts of bricks near construction sites, greatly accelerating the speed with which you can build your city). Part of this free update will be a new demo which we feel does a much better (and faster!) job of representing what is fun and unique about CotN, as well as showcasing the new enhancements, so for those of you who have not tried the game, please wait until the new demo is released.

We believe in supporting our products as best we can post release, and are therefore also in the process of creating a series of content packs for CotN that will always be well worth the loaf of bread to barter for. Depending on demand we will expand or contract this series going forward.

Thank you all for being part of our journey!

-Chris Beatrice
