New Game 'Pillars of the Earth' to Launch this Summer

Daedalic Entertainment has revealed their upcoming video game “The Pillars of the Earth” is set for an August 2017 release. The game is an adaptation of the best-selling historical novel by Ken Follett, “The Pillars of the Earth”. It is a one-of-a-kind, 2D point and click adventure, a genre that Daedalic is renowned for.

The development team took the 1200-pages book as the blueprint and, turned it into an interactive novel. Players follow a nonlinear storyline with 3 playable main characters. The game is going to be released as three books with seven chapters each. Players purchase a season pass when buying book 1 – Daedalic will share more information about book 2 and 3 at Gamescom this year.

Set in 12th century England, a time of great poverty and war, “The Pillars of the Earth” takes place in the fictional town of Kingsbridge as it begins the construction of a Cathedral to assure wealth and security for its people. Philip, a monk, becomes the prior of Kingsbridge abbey. Jack, an ambitious architect, is commissioned to build the village cathedral. Aliena and her younger brother Richard, have to survive on their own; after their father, the Earl of Shiring, is incarcerated and murdered. Meanwhile, Prior Philip’s rivals, Bishop Waleran and William Hamleigh, a vengeful noble rejected by Aliena, see the town and its rise to importance as a thorn in their flesh. They want to see Kingsbridge burn.  The original novel by Ken Follett has sold more than 26 million copies.
