PS4 price is still high, but great price for the X1 version.

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.

No, it's been developed by Daedalic Entertainment and is based on a novel. It is a point and click type of game. You don't point and click in telltale games, you just mash X button to go through dialogues.

Thanks!

Point and click with a controller? That sounds a bit awkward...

If I remember well, the last P&C game I played on PS4 was The Little Acre. Honestly nothing felt awkward about playing it on PS4. In fact, if you did not mention this, I'd have never thought about it, lol.

Have you played either game? As this is nothing like Baldurs Gate (which is hack and slash rpg).

This is more like broken sword - point and click with a strong focus on narrative.

Sorry, I read it as Pillars of Eternity.....
As someone who read and enjoyed the book, is this worth a buy? Not seen much about it but I can't imagine it being that good if I'm honest and if I wanted more of Kingsbridge I could read the sequel.
Read the book instead! It's cheaper. And the best historical epic I've read. Hmm... actually, probably second to Lonesome Dove.

Read the first one and enjoyed it. Are the other two worth a read or not? I have them on my shelf but with so much in the reading backlog don't know if I can justify 1100+ pages for the 2nd one.

The second one, World Without End, is pretty much more of the the same. Perfectly fine if that's what you want! Haven't read A Column of Fire, in fact I wasn't aware it existed! Thanks for the heads up.
