"In the game of Game of Thrones, you win or you reload."
Telltale recently confirmed that they had secured a major and exciting licence. Previously they had spoken of the great potential offered by the Game of Thrones licence for storytelling, and it was a property they were interested in working on:
"I think we’d like to do that. It has a lot of what we need in a franchise, for sure. The intrigue, the threat, that looming threat that can be called in on you at any time. Or someone you love, similarly. It’s a dangerous world, basically, and a haywire, chaotic world with a lot of group dynamics. That’s super interesting."Based on information from Westeros.org, it appears that such a game would be based on the HBO TV series rather than the Song of Ice and Fire novels. We await official word on the rumours from Telltale, HBO and George R.R. Martin. Based on the superb quality of their Walking Dead game (easily the best slice of the franchise released in any medium to date), I hope this news is true.
