Daedalic to Build Ken Follett Video Game

Best-selling book 

The Pillars of the Earth

to inspire adventure game.

Video game developer Daedalic Entertainment is developing a game based on the best-selling novel by Ken Follett,

The Pillars of the Earth

.

The adventure game is being created in partnership with Bastei Lübbe, a shareholder of Daedalic and publisher of Ken Follett’s novels in German-speaking markets.

“We are very aware of and feeling the responsibility that comes along with this project.

The Pillars of the Earth

is one of world literature’s most-read and best-selling books, and comes with a large and long-lasting base of millions of fans," says Carsten Fichtelmann, founder and chief executive officer Daedalic Entertainment. "To meet their high expectations of our game will be a tremendous challenge, but one we are very eager to face. Adventure games are interactive literature, and we at Daedalic have dedicated ourselves to the perfection of this genre’s playing experience. We feel extremely honored that our work is being acknowledged by one of the world’s best-selling authors, and to be allowed to take his work into interactivity.”

The

game is set to be released in 2017 in conjunction with the publication of Follett's next novel, the third title in the Kingsbridge series.

The Pillars of the Earth

game will be the first-ever official Ken Follett game of its kind and will be available for PC, Mac, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and iOS.

"I’m thrilled that

The Pillars of the Earth

, which is probably my most famous book, is going to be turned into a computer game by Daedalic," says Follett. "I believe this will bring my work to the attention of a new generation of readers. I’ve been working with Bastei Lübbe, and with the Lübbe-family, for 35 years now. It has been a most congenial partnership, and a very successful one. So I’m very happy that our association is being continued in these exciting ways."
