Telltale have released the first trailer for their upcoming Game of Thrones game series. The narration is confirmation that the game will have actors from the TV adaptation as it’s narrated by
Cersei Lannister Lena Headey. It’s accompanied by a blog entry specifically explaining that Heady will be joined by at least three other cast members – Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister), Natalie Dormer (Margaery) and Iwan Rheon (Ramsay Snow) – with more to be revealed as the story progresses.
The story itself revolves around House Forrester who have managed to get themselves caught up in the War of the Five Kings. Frankly, you could do that simply by mentioning it but anyway. You can play from the points of view of five members and hangers-on of the house, which echoes the chapter structure of the books. They “must do everything they can to prevent the house from meeting its doom” while dealing with the knock-on effects of each character’s actions
Telltale have this to say about House Forrester:
“House Forrester is a noble house from the Wolfswood in the north of Westeros. Bannermen to House Glover, they have always offered unswerving loyalty to the ruling great house of the North – the Starks. The Forresters are seated at Ironrath, an imposing stronghold surrounded by towering ironwood trees. Built over fifteen hundred years ago by Cedric Forrester and his triplet sons, Ironrath is a testament to the strength and endurance of Ironwood. The Forrester house words are ‘Iron from Ice’, which echoes their belief that – like the ironwood itself – the adverse conditions and unforgiving landscape of the North only makes them stronger.”
Truly ’tis grim up North. Just look at Graham.
