The Pillars of the Earth PC, iOS and etc. is an adventure game from Daedelic Entertainment, the creators of the Deponia series, Blackguards and The Dark Eye: Chains of Satinav. This one is a virtual adaptation of a popular history novel by British writer Ken Follett, set in the Medieval England and entitled The Pillars of the Earth.
The story of The Pillars of The Earth PC, iOS and etc. takes place in the 12th-century England, during the tumultuous period of history called the Anarchy. After the death of king Henry I, and the only heir to the throne having been killed in the crash of the White Ship, England succumbs in a violent war of succession. With the war in the background and the tensions between the nobles, clergy and the common people constantly growing, the game tells a story about an attempt to raise a monumental cathedral in a fictional city of Kingsbridge in the south of the country. As it turns out, in order to complete their work the builders have to overcome many obstacles and face more than one enemy.
The player unravels the plot in a way typical to adventure games: by conducting conversations, exploring various locations and solving logic puzzles.
