Last November’s announcement that The Walking Dead developer Telltale Games would be trying their hand at creating a thrilling adventure set in George R. R. Martin’s Game of Thrones– or, to be specific, A Song of Ice and Fire – universe was met with positive reactions from gamers and critics alike. The team responsible for the episodic survivor drama of The Walking Dead video games have already proven that well-developed, gripping character-centric stories do have an audience – as such, it most likely comes as no big surprise that the same team would be sailing onto the dark waters that is the gritty and twist-laden Game of Thrones saga.

According to the latest pieces of information regarding the project, Ty Corey Franck himself – Martin’s personal assistant – will be collaborating with the team at Telltale in order to achieve the perfect level of authenticity and thus stay true to the novels and the world so richly described on their pages. This could be taken as a sort of quality assurance, if you will – Franck’s influence will, we are hoping, ensure that the video game adaptation brought to life by Telltale will deliver the same level of quality as HBO’s tremendously popular TV show. Possibly the only bad news to be found here lies in the utter scarcity of information regarding the actual game: at present, all we really have to admire is a brief, uneventful announcement trailer released at the end of last year. Regardless of how development of the project goes, life never stops at Telltale: they have already launched the second season of their popular The Walking Dead series, while The Wolf Among Us, an adventure game based on Bill Willingham’s Fables comic books has only recently celebrated the release of its third episode.

Telltale’s Game of Thrones adaptation will be launching sometime this year.
