Pillars of Earth is a game that I can now recommend with a clear conscience. The developer that is Daedalic are a bunch of skilled coders and good storytellers so even though the game is divided into episodes I strongly believe it will be a fantastic adventure. The time spent in the first part of the story was a wonderful experience and I'm waiting impatiently for the next instalment! Solid game!
