Developed by Telltale, Game of Thrones is the highly anticipated graphic adventure game adaptation of HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” the hugely popular TV series adaptation of George R. R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” epic fantasy novel series.
The game features settings and characters from the TV series, with voice work performed by some of the actors in the show, including Lena Headey as Cersei Lannister and Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister (pictured).
However, its five playable characters hail from House Forrester, whose members haven’t appeared on the show, but have appeared in “A Dance with Dragons,” the fifth book in the novel series. “The actions of one character can ripple out to affect the rest of House Forrester,” Telltale notes. “Multiply the actions of one character by five, and you’re truly playing the Game of Thrones … where you win, or you die.”
