Winter is coming. As is a game based on George R.R. Martin’s epic series Game of Thrones.
According to IGN, Telltale Games, which received critical acclaim for its riveting storyline and heart-wrenching decisions in The Walking Dead game, is planning a game set in the world of Westeros. Details surrounding the gameplay, and whether it follows the storyline from Martin’s novels or the HBO series, are still unknown.
The studio has been particularly successful with the adventure games genre, some of which include old-school favourites like Monkey Island and the Sam & Max series. A plot-driven adventure game for Game of Thrones is definitely not surprising, seeing how Ned Stark (spoiler alert!) and many others have died in such a short span. Choosing who lives or dies and affecting the plot of the game are the studio’s signature, and it should work quite well when players live through the epic saga.
So oil those mouse buttons, and get comfortable in your home-made Iron Throne. When winter comes, you’ll be facing murder, betrayal and hopefully, dragons when you play the Game of Thrones.
