This interactive novel is released in three 'books', containing 7 chapters each. 12th century, England: In a time of great poverty and war, a small town begins the construction of a cathedral to claim wealth and security for its people. In their struggle to survive, lives and destinies intertwine. Philip the monk becomes prior of the small abbey of Kingsbridge. At the same time, a boy called Jack is raised in the woods by his outlawed mother. His apprenticeship as a stonemason paves his way to become a gifted master builder. Together with the disgraced noblewoman Aliena, Jack and Philip begin the construction of one of the greatest cathedrals England will ever see.

This first release of Pillars only begins the story of the novel across its seven initial chapters, but if subsequent entries in the series are anything like this one, you have a lot to look forward to. The simple adventure style really works for a game with such a compelling and unique narrative, to the point that Iâm chomping at the bit to play the next games already.
If you love the lengthy, drawn-out reward of a great plot, interesting characters, and wonderful environment, I can't recommend this enough. Bear in mind that the game still has a couple of parts to release in future updates, so you can't complete the story just yet.
Risulta chiaro che gli enigmi non rappresentino il fulcro dell'esperienza di gioco, agendo soprattutto in funzione del racconto, ma quello che viene fuori è un insieme coeso e reso particolarmente affascinante e avvincente dall'ottima ambientazione e costruzione dei personaggi, grazie anche allo spessore del materiale letterario da cui si parte.
