Chris Beatrice, designer of Pharaoh and many other worldwide bestselling titles, has parted from Impressions Games after many years to establish his own studio, Tilted Mill Ent. Inc.

Before founding Tilted Mill in 2002, Chris led Sierra’s Impressions Games studio as Director of Design and Development, General Manager and Creative Director. In his nine years of industry experience, Chris has played a key role in the development of more than 20 published titles, including the internationally acclaimed Lords of the Realm™ and Lords of Magic™ series. With Pharaoh™, Chris brought a new dimension of worldwide success to Impressions’ unique city building games.

Jeff Fiske, formerly Senior Designer at Impressions, well known for the Civil War Generals™ series and as the Lead Designer of Lords of the Realm III™, has joined Chris at Tilted Mill.

A group of versatile talents rounds out the rest of the Tilted Mill team, representing a unique concentration of experience and expertise within the industry, eager to create strategy and RPG games with the potential of making gaming history.

Right now, Tilted Mill is working on its first project, which is scheduled to be in pre-alpha phase this fall. The studio is already working with a major publisher on a publishing and distribution agreement for this and future products.
