Default Game of Thrones - A Telltale Games Series

Sauce:

Quote:
Based on HBO's award-winning television drama, Game of Thrones - A Telltale Games Series tells the story of House Forrester. Caught up in the events of The War of the Five Kings, they are placed in a precarious position where members of the household must do everything they can to prevent the house from meeting its doom.



Our game series is based on the world, characters and events seen in HBO's TV show, which in turn is based on George R. R. Martin's books (A Song of Ice and Fire). The events in our game series begin towards the end of Season Three of the TV show, and end right before the beginning of Season Five. You will visit familiar locations such as King's Landing and The Wall, as well as unfamiliar locations such as Ironrath, the home of 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.



Ironrath sits on the edge of the largest ironwood forest in Westeros, which has proven to be a strategic advantage for the House. The trees are a valuable commodity; many of the best weapons, ships, and defensive structures include the use of ironwood. House Forrester controls the majority of the ironwood forests in the Wolfswood, much to the chagrin of their bitter rivals, House Whitehill.


Although the Forresters have not appeared in HBO's TV show, they are canon to the world created by George R. R. Martin, having appeared in the book 'A Dance with Dragons'.


You will play the game from five different points of view. Each character you play as is a member of House Forrester; either a direct family member, or a person in service to the House. Scattered across Westeros and Essos, each character will play their part in seeking to save House Forrester from destruction.


Playing as five characters not only reflects the epic scope of Game of Thrones, but is also something that the player needs to be mindful of. This is because the actions of one character can ripple out to affect the rest of House Forrester. Multiply the actions of one character by five, and you're truly playing the Game of Thrones…where you win, or you die

From what I've read, this coincides with Stannis's driving out the ironborn in A Dance with Dragons.

I played it last night and loved every minute of it. Getting to know of a obscure Northern family and their house was a big selling point but another is how much like the books the game feels. You jump between a few characters and every interaction has weight to it. Although there is some action the game is much more about making the right choices. The HBO cast lending their voices to the game is great and immersive. Plus I got well over an hour, maybe two out of the first episode so less than $30 for all six is a steal.

It's great that these newly introduced characters are well fleshed out, and in cases like Whitehill adequately hateable.

How much do the endings vary? With the choices I made young Lord Forrester was killed by Ramsay.

Not sure if I could even replay it, looked around and it seems like I could only start off with that last chapter, and in the meantime the game is on my fathers PC which I don't have regular access too. I sort of want to go back and not choose Tuttle as the guy I listen to.

I do love the fact that it is a one time price for all episodes, it wasn't clear to me at first and seemed steep.

afaik, the death of the boy is a fixed point in the game, whatever choices you made don't effect that outcome

I am actually very interested in this as I played the TWD series, the Fables games and Poker Night at the Inventory 2. I already enjoy GoT a lot so this should be neat.

Finally got around to playing all the released episodes (no computer except at my dad who lives far away) and loved every bit of it.

I decided to check out Telltales' Game of Thrones game and here's my review of it. I understand this game got on Forbes' 2015 most disappointing games because it took a whole year to finish the story (they we're peridiocally released) but if you play it in one sitting, it's quite an enjoyable story for fantasy + Game of Thrones fans.
