Tilted Mill to Release First Hinterland Content Update

October 8, 2008 – Following the successful release of Hinterland, a fantasy PC title featuring fast paced RPG combat and strategic town-building, Tilted Mill Entertainment today announced that it will be releasing the first free Content Update for the title very shortly.

"We're really happy with the reception our first truly independent title has received," said Chris Beatrice, Tilted Mill’s president. "It's always been our goal to have more of a direct relationship with the people who enjoy our games, so that we can involve them in the process on an ongoing basis. We want to grow Hinterland as a collaborative effort with the gamers who are playing it, and the first content update reflects that."

The free update will include:
Two new character types you can play as - The Elf Archer and the Dwarf Warrior

Creature-specific item drops - Rare and unique items, (e.g. Troll Blood) that give the character who consumes them permanent bonuses

Character Info Screen - Details your abilities, and gives information on the town in general

You can acquire resources through economic means - Dig a well for Fresh Water, plant Herbs, import Iron, etc.

Expanded character customization choices when leveling - Three ability choices instead of two with the third choice based on your character’s profession.

Item Sorting – Ability to automatically sort inventory items by type and relative power

Auto-equipping - Townspeople will automatically take items they can use from the town inventory periodically as needed (this can also be turned off if desired)

Miscellaneous balancing, pacing and usability improvements and refinements - made in response to player feedback
