Game development studio Cyanide launched their real-time strategy interpretation of George R. R. Martin's acclaimed fantasy series A Game of Thrones
yesterday. You can see a trailer
and a few screenshots
if you're so inclined. Cyanide also confirmed one of their other offices is working on a completely different RPG based on the series
as well. It's still a ways out, but they say it will be "Mass Effect
-style," and will pick up at the start of the first book. "True to the style of Martin's books, it will tell the story of two different characters, switching back and forth between them as their tales move alongside the events of the first book (and occasionally intersect with one another). None of the characters from the book will be playable, though the game's protagonists will cross paths with plenty of familiar faces over the course of the game."
