The most notable quality of The Pillars of the Earth is that you'll end wanting to read the original Ken Follett novel. In the 24-ish hours required to reach the end of the game, below a slow pace and a pretty basic gameplay, you'll find a great story and an excellent narrative.

We could talk about interactive book, but it won't be enough, we could talk about graphic novel, but it won't be enough. Is a particular narrative project, inheritance of the great story of Ken Follet's Pillars of the Earth.
