Founded in 1996 by gaming industry veteran Sergey Orlovski , now the company CEO,  Nival Interactive is an independent video games developer that has developed and released a number of highly successful role playing and strategy games including Rage of Mages (a.k.a Allods), Blitzkrieg, and Etherlords. Nival is also the company behind the widely-popular Heroes of Might and Magic V as well as two add-ons published by Ubisoft. The company is currently focused in the development of PC and mobile projects.

In 2005, Nival Interactive, a branch of Nival, entered into a buy-out agreement with Ener1 Group, a Florida- based holding company, for an estimated sum of $10 million. In November 30, 2007, Orlovskiy regained full control of the company. Later, in the early months of 2010, Astrum Nival, another branch of Nival, was sold to the biggest Russian portal, Mail.Ru for more than $100 million, effectively becoming part of Astrum Online Entertainment.

Through the years, Nival Interactive’s business has grown by leaps and bounds including a merger with Nival Network to form a new company named Nival. The company was able to raise a total of $6 Million in a funding round led by Almaz Capital in December of 2013 which will be used to fund the company’s plans to expand globally.
