The Pillars of the Earth

 

Daedalic has announced that The Pillars of the Earth will be launching on PC, Linux, Mac, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 on August 15th.

“The Pillars of the Earth”, an adaptation of the best-selling historical novel by Ken Follett, is a one-of-a-kind, 2D point and click adventure. The development team took the 1200-page novel as the blueprint, and turned it into an interactive novel.

If you’re wondering about books two and three, more information about them will be shared at Gamescom 2017. You can check out the Daedalic Website for trailers, screenshots, “The Making of The Pillars of the Earth”, and more. Since that web page has everything in the press release, the press release is not displayed below.

 

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in my early 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES and SNES. He loves Nintendo but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks or bike rides, and loves animals.

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called PreComputer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the free version of the Unity engine (a powerful and easy-to-use game engine).

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
