Telltale, the studio that specializes in the kind of adventure game that allegedly went out of style in the ’90s but managed to pick up “Game of the Year” accolades for last year’s “The Walking Dead,” are turning their attention to another page to screen to game adaptation according to IGN: “Game of Thrones.”
While there are about a jillion “Game of Thrones” games (“A Song of Ice and Fire” games for those of you who have read the books) ranging from card to board to pretty “eh” computer RPGs this new effort announced by Telltale instantly had gaming’s Twitteratti at attention.
Not that Telltale has a flawless track record. They’ve adapted “Jurassic Park”, “Back to the Future”, and the comic book hit Fables all to varying degrees of success. The critical consensus is that Telltale is on a roll since “Walking Dead,” and George R.R. Martin’s story world is a perfect fit for the studio’s signature style of narrative choice driven games.
TL;DR: Shut up and take my money.
