Games of Thrones confirmed by Telltale Games

Coming in 2014.

Telltale Games has confirmed rumors that it is working on an episodic adventure series for Game of Thrones.

A teaser trailer for the adaptation was played during this year's Spike VGX awards. The theme to HBO's TV version of the show was played, and the HBO logo was also displayed. While the TV series looks to be the main inspiration behind the game, Telltale says it will be "taking advantage of all the fiction" for its adaptation.

No details were given about what characters or locations would be featured. A 2014 date was shown in a teaser trailer. Telltale would not confirm whether it would be featuring the series' voice actors or likenesses in the game.

The game will be similar to Telltale's previous adventure games, but big battles--a key part of the source material--were hinted at.

Alongside Game of Thrones, Telltale is also working on a second season of The Walking Dead, A Wolf Among Us, and the just-announced Tales from the Borderlands.

Telltale is a company iv grown to trust and even admire, matching if not surpassing (in my personal opinion) some of the giants of story telling such as bioware. Im sure if they put in the same amount of artistic vision and passion that is found in wolf among us, this will be a knock out game!

Hmm wonder what graphical look they'll go for? Game of Thrones does have a series of graphic novels now so they may be able to get away with using the same artists as their current titles.

There better not be any wieners in it. Keep all the booby shots though.

Which characters of the books or Tv show are going to be in the game? -We don't know. 

Ok, but where is is going to play, just in a few locations or will you exploit the whole storyline from the books? -We don't know that either. 

So if there are any characters from the show in the game, will they be portrayed by the real actors? -We don't know. 

....

Hey you also got that Borderlands game coming out...-We can't share any more details about that right now.

.....

You have two games coming out in the next two months, can you tell us something about the second season of The Walking De....-No.


Fascinating news!

A good Game of Thrones game? Well, they'd have to work really hard to make it worse than that game by Cyanide Studios. While people die all the time in Game of Thrones, a game verson shouldn't make you feel like being poisoned by cyanide, because of how dull and mediocre it is.

So when are they going to do Breaking Bad and complete the "Best TV of 2013" trifetica?

Not a big fan of episode content. It just screams in my mind low production values and unfinished no matter how good the game may be.

expect more dude to dude, brother and sister, and torture sex scenes in the game

Hoping this will be more of a prequel and deal with the Targaryens. If Martin is helping with the writing of the game, it would give him a chance to greatly expand on the Targaryen period of rule. Vhagar, Meraxes, Balerion... THE DRAGONS ARE COMING!....Maybe

Are tell tale games trying to start a point and click revolution?

Perhaps they are  doing something like the 360/PS3 game where it's a side story featuring their own original characters (approved by GRRM and the shows' creators of course) with cameos by characters from the series voiced by the actors/actresses who portray them on the show. Still waiting for the MMORPG though.

Telltale bringing you the best books in gaming since 2005. not saying they are not fun but their games are pretty much Graphic novels with a tiny bit of  interaction

I might try it but Tell Tale has been hit or miss in the past.

Holy mother of ass! Just how huge are they? When they started making The Walking Dead, I thought they were just a small dev team, almost an independant one, but now they're crafting four games at once!

A remake game since game didn't come out long ago. Go do South Park or the Simpsons don't remake people stuff .

TWD season 2, TWAU season 1, Tales from the Borderlands, and now Game of Thrones... I'm afraid Telltale is biting on more than it can chew.

Two great tastes that taste great together. really hope TT delves into the books' canon more than the show's but I'm in regardless.

@denhoffi I imagine we will play as Jon Snow, and Bran at some point. Those 2 were more connected with the "fantasy " part of the show

@Hurvl *sigh* I really wanted a good RTS game set in Westeros. The whole huge map +  RTS think sounded really promising. I'll have to make do with the Crusader Kings 2 mod :(

@xJointChiefx In all fairness; I don't want Martin helping them with the game. I want GRR Martin writing Winds of Winter.

@breathnac They've been trying for years, it's great :P although Walking Dead and such are more interactive novels than point and click adventure games.

And yet still manage to be excellent. Back to the Future was just fantastic the whole way through, and Game of Thrones was a pleasant surprise. After Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones is my second favorite show. So this news is just music to my ears.

Well Game of Thrones is far better than Walking Dead.... so hopefully they put more resources into this than season 2 of Walking Dead.

What would be great is if they used the show's likeness of characters and location, like an extension of the show, but used more of the details from the books.

@NavMan92 @xJointChiefx By his own admission, he's a very slow writer. He's also stated that he cannot allow the show to catch up to the books story-wise, although I don't see how that can be avoided since we still have no tentative release date for The Winds of Winter, and A Dream of Spring will probably be another 5 years after that. He doesn't need anymore side projects. He does the convention circuit, writes an episode for each season of the show in addition to his producer duties, and he's got 1500 pages of manuscript to edit, rewrite, and pass on to his team of continuity/fact checkers.
