Game Of Thrones Video Game

This is a wonderful look at the making of a video game.

There are a couple of things I want to cover when it comes to the making of "Game of Thrones".

First off, I am a writer. Two novels so far and a couple more in the works. And of course this is an adaptation of a series of books "A Song of Ice and Fire" by George R.R. Martin.



So, being a writer of epic fantasy it would be a safe bet that I would absolutely love to see one of my books made into a video game. Would that not be the coolest thing ever? It sure as heck would! And one of the great things about a project like that would be the interaction between writer and video game developers.

Think about it. As a writer, you have created a world. Possibly a whole world with races, cities, landscape and well.... anything at all that you wanted to create in your world. Then video game developers come along and turn that world into an game reality. Wouldn't that be the coolest? Being able to actually roam around the world you created?

And this also brings up some challenges like the fact that your novel is a series of events that happen. So, you can't make a game that goes through that series of events. Where would the fun be if the game player read the book and already knew what would happen. This is an interesting challenge and in this video the game developers talk about this and how they handled it.



About Game Of Thrones
Game of Thrones is a big role playing game developed by Cyanide for PlayStation® 3, Xbox 360® and PC. The game is based on the famous series of novels A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin, which has already sold over 15 million units around the world, and which HBO® has recently adapted into the critically-praised TV series Game of Thrones.

This is the most ambitious project of Cyanide Studio. Developed on Unreal Engine 3 and written under the supervision of George R.R. Martin, Game of Thrones will allow fans of the series, and more generally adepts of role-playing games, to live an exceptional adventure in one of the most finely-worked universe from the medieval fantasy literature.

Along the 30 hours of gameplay offered by Game of Thrones , play as Mors, sworn brother of the Night's Watch, and Alester, a Red Priest in search of redemption who is back to Westeros after a long exile. The Hand of King Robert Baratheon has just passed away, and these two charismatic heroes will find themselves dragged in a grand quest that will lead them through familiar and gorgeous places of Westeros, such like the Wall and its region, or the famous King's Landing. In this grand adventure, they will meet famous faces: Queen Cersei, Varys the Spider or Jeor Mormont, the Lord Commander of the Night's Watch faithfully reproduced from the TV series.

In Game of Thrones , you will choose the class of your characters, find your fighting style, reach a good balance between your strengths and weaknesses, and get ready for epic battles! Find, buy or loot new equipment and weapons to fit your approach of the fights, and gain experience to improve your skills or learn new ones. Slow the time down during battle to analyze the situation and choose your next moves. In game of thrones, political skills can be as lethal as a sharpen sword, so never underestimate the power of a silver tongue to solve a critical situation!

Game of Thrones will release on Xbox 360®, PlayStation® 3 and PC on May 15th in North America, and the first week of June in the rest of the world.
