"We’re all familiar with the Red Wedding, yes? Even if you haven’t watched the HBO TV show Game of Thrones, or read George RR Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire book series, you probably know, in broad strokes, what the Red Wedding is. (Short version: everyone dies.) In the world of Westeros, the Red Wedding signaled a sea change in power and ethics that left what scraps remained of the virtuous, northern Stark clan dishonored, starving, and spread thin across the vast continent. For TV viewers, it boldly declared, “your favorite characters are never safe, and there is nothing you can do to help them.” Telltale’s new adventure game based on the show begins with the Red Wedding, showing the slaughter of House Stark’s loyal bannermen outside the castle at the same time the treacherous Freys are serving crossbow surprise in the dining hall."
