Ken Follet’s The Pillars of Earth is based on a best-selling novel that goes by the same name. The game depicts the state of war and poverty that existed in England in the 12th Century. Ken tells the story in video game form across 21 playable chapters. Daedalic Entertainment has developed The Pillars of Earth, which features a point-and-click system. Interestingly, these are the same developers responsible for Deponia.

Lastly, this week players can enjoy the exploration game called The First Tree. This third-person game is centered around two parallel storylines. First, a fox exploring the world trying to find its family. Second, the story of a son reconnecting with his long-lost father in Alaska. The game is extremely well narrated, relaxing, and features some of the most beautiful visuals.
