We’ve already had one Game of Thrones RPG that tried to go the traditional route of skills, stats and melee combat. That didn’t work out so well. Now, Telltale, who’s been the vanguard for making adventures games cool again, is taking a crack at it, and rather than focusing on the swords and sorcery, they’re looking at the plotting and backstabbing; the reasons most people watch the show, in other words. It would be a gutsy move for any other studio, as most games based on a license tend to be shoddy, cynical cash grabs taking advantage of fan goodwill. But this is Telltale we’re talking about, and they’ve knocked it out of the park again.
