Update by Justin Britch, Lead Producer
The House of Wael
For any backer that would get the novella as part of their rewards (If you pledged $50 or more) it is now available on Steam and through the Backer Portal's ‘Products’ page. With this final reward in place, the full Pillars of Eternity experience is available to our backers.
The House of Wael is a multilayered narrative that tells the story of a young boy's encounter with a strange house that might just be the work of Wael, god of mysteries. Taken in by its stern caretaker, the boy is introduced to a building where rugs grow food, where stairs are as likely to end in a pit as a floor, and where the gods' deepest secrets line the halls like artwork in a museum.
Yet, for all its puzzles, the most challenging may be the one the boy needs most desperately to solve: discovering the way out.
We really appreciate the ride you have taken with us over the years. Without you, we wouldn't have been able to achieve so much with Pillars.

Figin' it Forward: Wasteland 3
InXile is back with a sequel to their first crowdfunded game, Wasteland 2. Wasteland 3 is a party-based role-playing game that will take place in the lands of frozen Colorado, where survival is difficult and a happy outcome is never guaranteed. Players will face difficult moral choices and make sacrifices that will change the game world. Wasteland 3 is introducing vehicles, story-driven multiplayer, a revamped dialog system, and your own base of operations. Check it out here.
That’s everything for this update. Thanks everyone!
