Christ. Cynacide is already working on a Game of Thrones game... http://pc.ign.com/articles/... Really wish the author would've done his research....
+1 (btw, the studio name is CYANIDE)
Read the article. He acknowledges the game but doesn't feel it would do the game show/book justice.
but his idea wont necessarily neither . A rpg to explore westeros ? Ok then it cant mostly be heavily be linked to the books and focus instead on new chars adventures or previous ones . You can't easily do otherwise , besides a strategy game , when as much time is spent in courts and among characters dialoguing , rather than your regular fantasy battles and action scenes . Imo a rts is the perfect fit for A Song of Fire and Ice , compared to some brawler , or fighting nobodies in a rpg . Again the serie is even more about court intrigues and war strategies and alliances , than epic action tales .
@Baka-akaB, I tottaly agree. While I was watching the series it was like watching an RTS game on tv without the battles (don't really know why they don't show the battles on the show). It's all about diplomacy, intrigue, alliances and 8 houses fighting for the 7 kingdoms. That is all about an RTS game with a strong online/lan component, to play with 7 other friends, each one taking care of it's own house (We could even include the house of Greyjoy and the Dotrakhi). If Cyanide can make it work it will be awesome
Yea, more video games based on movies and shows is exactly what we need. Developers working on original titles sure would suck
Agreed, like the book is not enough we have to have a show and a video game also, only things missing are a clothing line, a food sponsorship, a soap opera, and an etching on the Moon.
Hell, I don't even think the show is anything special. I've watched four episodes so far and I can't get over how mediocre it is. I'm really, really trying to like it since I love fantasy stuff and all of my friends love it, but I can't.
Can't wait until I can reclaim the Seven Kingdoms from the Usurper without the aid of these Dothraki dogs.
spoiler alert!! dude, you're kind of dead.
How is your crown working for you.
Thats all wanted, what was promised.
You don't have dragon blood... A Dragon can't be hurt with fire
lol this made me laugh actually.
Silence!! You don't want to wake the dragon do you?
Can I try your crown?
as long as they keep the fisting scene in (mini game time) lol.
No.... Game of thrones is better in non-interactive format. Not everything needs a game. Let it be.
I can hardly picture a game anyway about Varys and Petyr slyly stroking their egos and jabbing at each other . Or verbal warfare between tyrion and Cersei ... The wars they say ? The books dont even depicts them as much as other franchises , and again that's what rts are for . The fight of the Nightwatch against whitewalkers/others ? So people would accuse the game of being a cheap dragon age rip off ? meh pass
They are making a game out of everything, "Banannas in Pyjamas: The Game" any other suggestions?
Teletubbies: Quest for the Tubbie Toast.
What about a Star Wars game that we could play moving our arms and jumping in front of a camera. Ahahahah.... oh wait... :S
Game of Thrones is 'effin awesome, but I don't think any game would be able to do it justice.
I would love to see a "Game of Thrones" Strategy RPG like Final Fantasy Tactics or Heroes of Might & Magic. Don't think it would work otherwise.
A game made about a book series that isn't complete yet? No! Not again. The WOT game was bad enough.
Won't work. Entirely too many characters, split up at too many different points. The way to be most faithful to the books would be the most boring of games. And I don't want to see one of my favorite series of books butchered.
