Telltale Games has announced an upcoming game based on the popular Game of Thrones series by George R. R. Martin. Game of Thrones has also been adapted into a popular HBO series, and is set in a fantasy world where numerous royal families try to outmaneuver each other on both the battlefield and the King’s court.
The announcement comes with a teaser trailer (below), which reveals nothing except a general release date of “2014.”
Telltale scored a big hit with their adaptation of The Walking Dead, a point-and-click adventure where much of the drama was wrung by making difficult moral choices—something Game of Thrones also has by the barrel, where characters who make the “noble” choice are just as likely to end up with their head on a pike. Given that Telltale has also made similar games out of Fables and Back to the Future, chances are the Thrones game will take the same form.
