'''Nival''', originally known as Nival Interactive, is a Russian video game company with a... complicated history. It has gone through quite a few acquisitions, split-ups, renames and reacquisitions, to the point that it's hard to tell just whom the company belongs to at any given moment.

Throughout the [=1990s=] and [=2000s=], Nival released several PC games, most of which didn't gain significant momentum outside Russia (with the exception of ''VideoGame/HeroesOfMightAndMagic V'', made on a contract with Creator/{{Ubisoft}} after its reboot of the ''VideoGame/MightAndMagic'' series). Now Nival's various confusing sub-brands are mostly occupied with mobile and browser-based games, plus support for ''VideoGame/AllodsOnline''.
