Nival Interactive is a Russian video game developer, with its main development studio based in Moscow. Part of Nival Group.

Background[edit | edit source]

Nival was founded in 1996 in Moscow by Sergey Orlovskiy. It primarily focused on strategy games (frequently with role-playing elements). Its best-known products include Etherlords, Blitzkrieg, and Silent Storm. The company has recently released the fifth game in the Heroes of Might and Magic series, a franchise owned by Ubisoft.

Nival is the developer of two popular game engines, the Silent Storm Engine and the Enigma Engine, that were reused in several third-party titles.

In early 2005, the company was bought by Ener1 Group, a Florida-based holdings company, for around US$10 million. Ener1 has stated that it will "integrate Nival's artists, designers, and programmers with its US-based video gaming interests".[citation needed] On November 30, 2007, Sergey Orlovskiy regained full control of Nival Interactive.[1]
