Tell Of Tales: Game Of Thrones: Details Of Game 

HOUSE FORRESTER!!!!!!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

House... Forrester?!!!!?? Now come on, come on. I mean, no-one expected to be a Stark, but COME ON.

You will be a member of House Forrester in Telltale's upcoming adventure/chat-o-dilemma adaptation of Game of Thrones - specifically the TV version, specifically set just before season 5. HOUSE BLOOMIN' FORRESTER.

Of the RPS staff, Alice is particularly distressed by the revelation that the Walking Dead dev's take on Game of Thrones will revolve around a lesser house. I've shared her concerns below.

Alice: Pip, this game's about House Glaven's struggling in the Bantor Hills. Even you don't care about characters that minor.
Alice: Pip I... made them up. I invented all of those things. Proof: GoL fans don't even read them #hipsters
Pip: yeah, but you happened to be actually close with one of them. Wasn't sure if you were "riffing"
Alice: Oh like Littlejohn's always doing with Gandalf
Pip: I don't even know what that means
Alice: Book 4, Chapter 7, MOTHERFUCKER
Pip: If you mean GoT, the chapters don't have numbers, they have the name of the protagonist they're focusing on
Alice: Don't you know about The 7 Theory? Check back, Pip. Think: where have you seen the number seven?
Pip: The book of revelation

No, Pip, it's worse than the end of the world! It's HOUSE FORRESTER!

OK, they are actually real - Asha Greyjoy mentioned them once (that's Yara to you televisual philistines) - but come on. COME ON.

... Maybe something completely unrelated to the argy-bargy between the Lannisters, Starks and Baratheons is the best way to make it a personal story. That is where Tellatale most excell, after all.

Here are the details. Basically, outsider house, multiple protagonists, visiting key locations at a point when Westeros is in chaos. Honestly, I think the GOT world is None More Telltale, and while I worry that they often pull their punches in terms of both narrative and technical ambition, I'm genuinely interested to see where they go with this.

Iron From Ice, the first episode of Game Of Thrones: A Telltale Games Series, will be available 'soon'. Apparently.
