Well hello there Telltale, what’ve you been working on? Tales from Borderlands? Sounds awesome, I love the crazy world of Pandora! Let me just grab tha… wait, what do you mean you’ve also been working on a Game of Thrones title and the first episode is out today?
Telltale has been on a roll lately. They launched Tales from the Borderlands out of the blue to overwhelmingly positive reviews, and they're not even done for the year. The other highly anticipated game they're working on takes place in the most popular fantasy world today, and now we know that Game of Thrones will be arriving extremely soon.
The upcoming Game of Thrones episodic game by Telltale recently got some new details, shedding light on all those damn teaser tweets we saw over the past few months. The game has just received a new teaser trailer, as well as more information on House Forrester, the family that the story will focus on.
Last week, I told you all about some details finally surfacing on Telltale’s Game of Thrones. We always knew the story was going to revolve around House Forrester, a family who have never been fleshed out, we just never knew to what extent it was going to be. Some screenshots have been leaked online, and they show some new characters, as well as familiar faces.
Murder, betrayal, incest… these are just a few of the characteristics of Game of Thrones. Having watched the show and read the entire available ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’ series (the large tomes that the television adaption is based on), you could say I am a big fan. I look forward to seeing what Telltale will do in their upcoming episodic title. We don’t have much information on the game, other than some random teaser tweets which I’ve done some speculating on. That may change soon.
Telltale have been super busy lately. They wrapped up the stellar seasons of The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us this year, while simultaneously working on debut seasons for Game of Thrones and Tales from the Borderlands as well. The latter is still only coming out next year, but you want have to wait that long for a trip to the Iron Throne.
Telltale Games have certainly earned my trust when it comes to making titles that have a strong emphasis on narratives and tough decisions. As a big fan of both book and series, I’m quite excited for the upcoming Game of Thrones game. Not much is really known about it just yet, but Telltale have been nice enough to release another teaser tweet to keep fans like myself salivating.
Telltale have done some amazing work on franchises such as The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us. They are working on several other projects, one of which is a Game of Thrones tale. Where will their story fit into the vast lore of ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’?
Marketing is coming. That's right, Game of Thrones is about to kick off their fourth season of the wildly popular series, and they're looking for some unique marketing opportunities. Thinking outside the box, HBO is teaming up with an eSports giant.
Put your dragons away and cover up folks, because here’s one rumour that might just make your Friday that little bit more awesome.
Game of Thrones season 3 has recently started up on DSTV again and I have to admit I’m one of those people who are slightly addicted to the violent, sexy, tangled drama that makes up Game of Thrones. Even so I do get confused as to who is sleeping/killing who at different parts in the series.
It’s no secret that Game of Thrones: The Game of Thrones: The Game of Thrones: The Game of Thrones: The Game of Thrones: The Game (Geoff hits Darryn with a wet fish)…Where was I? Oh yes. It’s no secret that the Game of Thrones game is pretty much, well, crap. There’s so much that could have been done to make it better, but instead we were left with a sub-standard RPG experience instead. Instead of getting something far more awesome…like this!
Here is some of the most amazing geek stuff I’ve seen lately. From iron thrones to keyboard sandals, some one please make me a millionaire! I’ll be dreaming about these all weekend.
With the HBO adaptation of the George RR Martin novels sitting high and mighty on the Iron Throne of television right now, a video game adaptation was inevitable. So far, those incarnations of the world of Westborous have failed to live up to the high standard set by the show itself, but can Game Of Thrones, live up to the impossible standards of the show, or should it be banished to a lifetime of service in the Night Watch?
