View the release trailer here.

Quote:
Today Daedalic Entertainment has announced that their highly anticipated interactive novel, The Pillars of the Earth, is now available on PC, Mac, Linux, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. An adaption of the best-selling historical book of the same name by Ken Follett, The Pillars of the Earth is a one-of-a-kind 2D interactive novel. The story follows a memorable cast of characters in this twelfth-century tale of the construction of a mighty Gothic cathedral which stunned readers and critics alike with its ambitious scope and gripping humanity. The game is available now for $29,99 on PC or $39,99 on console and can be purchased and downloaded in your favorite online or local store.

Players follow Jack, Aliena, and Phillip, the three playable main characters as they contend with envy, murder and politics in their quest to build a gothic cathedral in Kingsbridge and revitalize the town. The game will be released in three “books,” each consisting of seven chapters. Book 1 “From the Ashes” is now available and players purchase a season pass which will automatically give them access to the books 2 and 3 as soon as they are available.

“It was both an honor and challenge adapting such a beloved source material as The Pillars of the Earth. We focused on staying true to the scope and spirit of the story while incorporating the more immersive aspects that the interactive novel format allows.” Matt Kempke, author and game designer. Kevin Mentz, also author and game designer, noted: “Utilizing the interactivity of the game lets us to pull the player into the story and involve them emotionally so the core story beats and decisions feel more impactful and meaningful throughout.”
Set in the tumultuous period of 12th century England, “The Pillars of the Earth” sees main characters such as Jack, Aliena and Prior Phillip fight to construct a revolutionary gothic cathedral in the fictional town of Kingsbridge and put their town on the map economically, socially and politically. Such aspirations draw the ire of the the town’s rivals Bishop Waleran and William Hamleigh, a vengeful noble rejected by Aliena, who see the town and its rise to importance as a thorn in their flesh. They want to see Kingsbridge burn. This epic tale crosses decades and immerses readers in medieval life yet enthralls them in tales of heart-rending intimacy and humanity along the way.

The original novel by Ken Follett has sold more than 26 million copies to date.

The Pillars of the Earth features:
• 21 chapters depicting the famous thousand-page novel
• Interactive storyline events that can be changed, influencing the fates of its characters
• Key decision points with meaningful, emotionally-engaging story choices
• Over 200 hand-painted backgrounds featuring faithful rendition of 12th century life
• Three main playable protagonists, plus two extra playable characters
• An orchestral soundtrack by the FILMharmonic Orchestra, Prague


Happy Gaming!

Interactive novel? Not an adventure game? Hmmm.....I loved the book and the series, hope this is just as awesome.

Adventure Gamers has a review of the first part here.

It is a very informative review, and it sounds like a must-play to me. It tells you about the controls for the game, and pretty much everything else you would want to know if considering a purchase. wave

Thanks, Ana, and thanks for the review, Marian. I have been playing the game, and it's great so far. The section with the monk reminds me a lot of The Abbey, which was a game I really enjoyed. I have a feeling this game will be a lot more epic in scope, however. grin

Thanks for letting us know what you think of the game, venus. I just know that I am going to like this game. I hope the second and third episodes don't take too long to be released. smile

You're welcome, Marian. I played some more of the game this evening, and it just keeps getting better. It's also an especially long episode. I've played for 3 or 4 hours at least, and I still have quite a way to go. I expect the length of the game will be similar to The Longest Journey and The Lost Crown when it is out in full. You'll have a fantastic game to look forward to when it's complete. thumbsup
