The Pillars of the Earth is a historical novel (the real kind, with pages and everything) dense with intrigue, murder and revenge centered around a fictional 12th century English town’s plans to erect a cathedral. Adapted to digital, interactive format in a style not entirely unlike Telltale’s choose-your-own-adventures by experienced point-and-clicker creators Daedalic, by all accounts, this is something I would have deeply enjoyed, having eagerly consumed every episode of Cadfael and a few of the novels, but I’m sadly late to this party. Fashionably so, at least.
Today, the final part of The Pillars of the Earth was released, completing the 21-chapter digital adaptation of Ken Follett’s novel. Perfectly timed for a spot of lazy Easter weekend reading.
