In another surprise announcement, Telltale have revealed that they are making an episodic Game of Thrones game! Just how many more games can they make at once?
Telltale Games are working directly with HBO to create an episodic game (much like their Walking Dead series) based on the hit TV series. Dan Connors, CEO of Telltale Games said in an interview at VGX:
"We'll be taking advantage of all the fiction to make something great, we're just really getting into it right now and thinking about characters - who has the most at stake, who has the biggest impact on the world."
Game of Thrones and Telltale seem like a perfect hit, they almost perfected the episodic TV drama with The Walking Dead, so a Game of Thrones game seems like the obvious choice! I have total faith in Telltale to make a great series out of this license. To be honest I am amazed that they are making so many games at once, The Walking Dead, The Wolf Among Us, Tales From the Borderlands and now Game of Thrones. It seems like an awful lot to concentrate on, hopefully they can pull it off without over-saturating that genre.
Let me know in the comments below what you think of this announcement. Do you think Telltale can successfully make so many games at once?
