I’m a sucker for Game of Thrones; I’ve read all the available Song of Ice and Fire books and follow the show religiously but I’ve yet to play Telltale’s rendition of Westeros. Why? It’s something I’d much rather devour over a weekend as opposed to several months. If you however have been playing each episode dutifully and are eager for more, I’ve got good news. Episode 4 – Sons of Winter, is out tomorrow.
Telltale Games are really busy. They’re still in the process of finishing up ‘Tales from the Borderlands’ and ‘Game of Thrones’, both of which are only halfway through their seasons. They’re also working on a mysterious Minecraft: Story Mode, which has seen nothing more than an announcement. Their schedule just filled up even more however, because they’ve now joined forces with Marvel.
I’m in a love/hate relationship with Telltale Games. Their take on The Walking Dead universe (both season 1 and 2) drew me in, made me invest myself emotionally, then punched me right in the heart! There’s definitely something special about the way they craft their stories and make you question your decisions days after you’ve made them. Their latest titles, Game of Thrones and Tales from the Borderlands, only have 1 episode out each. That hasn’t stopped them from planning their next project though. Apparently there is something new in the pipeline, we just have no clue what it is yet!
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.
It's common for games to receive a lengthy hype period leading up to it's eventual launch. That's what gets people excited and clambering for the game on release day, even if the wait feels excruciating. Telltale seemingly missed that class during Game Design 101, as they've decided to launch their take on the Borderlands universe right now.
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.
Not exactly, but it is his live-action counterpart and occasional Brock Samson, Patrick Warburton. There’s a new trailer out for Telltale Games’ Tales From The Borderlands. You can listen to the iconic pipes of Warburton, after the jump.
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 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’?
Telltale’s The Walking Dead series is pretty well established now. The first season received critical praise from many. While I don’t quite understand all the game of the year awards, it was a great game nonetheless and I really enjoyed it. The second season is nearing its conclusion, with just one outstanding episode. Looks like a third season is on the way too.
I’ve really grown fond of Telltale and their Walking Dead games. I love ruining peoples lives with my horrible decisions, its survival of the fittest after all! If you’re a fan like myself, you can rejoice, because the next instalment in the episodic game has some sort of release date.
I don’t think I would be entirely wrong in saying that Telltale’s The Wolf Among Us is better than The Walking Dead in a number of ways. I’ve been playing both, and while the storytelling is excellent across the board, there’s something about the Fables universe that makes each episode a bit more inviting, never mind entertaining. It could just be Snow White, who knows.
