'Hinterland' - New Screens

by Rainier on July 18, 2008 @ 5:44 p.m. PDT

Independent strategy, simulation and role-playing developer Tilted Mill Entertainment (known for SimCity Societies and Caesar IV) announced Hinterland, a game where you loot, level and build mixed with fast paced RPG combat and strategic base building!

In Hinterland, you build up and lead a small village, populated by simple townsfolk struggling to survive and prosper in the wild back country of a medieval fantasy world. Leading small parties of adventurers drawn from the ranks of the townspeople themselves, you undertake quests outside the village, seeking to conquer various foes, and collect treasure, magic items and knowledge which will, in turn, fuel your village. As your village becomes stronger, you’ll forge your own weapons, manufacture magic items and potions, and tame the wild land.

Your goal is to lead a handful of peasants to establish a small haven in the wild backcountry of a fantasy kingdom. You must also carefully select members of your village to put down their ploughs, leave their comfortable homes, taking whatever weapon they may have at hand, to join you on expeditions of exploration and conquest in the surrounding lands. There you’ll encounter the characters and creatures of myth and folklore, and find much needed resources to expand your village. Should your forays meet with success, fame, fortune and prosperity await. But you must take care, for even the loss of a lowly farmer can spell disaster when harvest time comes.

Can you build a vibrant settlement, lead your people to prosperity, and tame the wild Hinterland?
