Tilted Mill Entertainment is a video game developer located in Framingham, Massachusetts. It was founded in 2001 by former Impressions Games lead designer and general manager Chris Beatrice, business manager Peter Haffenreffer, and designer Jeff Fiske.

The company employs 20 staff in design, programming, creative, and administrative roles. Tilted Mill is a reference to Don Quixote. Tilted Mill developed the fifth game of the SimCity series, titled SimCity Societies (all previous titles had been developed by Maxis). The game, however, was criticized for its lack of the traditional SimCity gaming formula.[1]

On July 11, 2008, Tilted Mill announced the creation of their first independent game entitled Hinterland.[2] According to Tilted Mill's website, "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." The game was released on Steam on 30 September 2008.
