Default A Game of Thrones: Genesis

For any fans of George R.R Martin's epic fantasy A Song of Ice and Fire you may begin rejoicing as I am. The video game adaption, a time strategy, has been confirmed for 2011.

http://www.focus-home.com/index.php?rub=games&gid=47

So far the images look quite good, and a time strategy game based on A Song of Ice and Fire will have plenty of different sides to choose. The Houses of Stark, Lannister, Greyjoy, Tully and from the look of the image below, the Targaryens will hopefully all be playable.



Dragons, just damn awesome no matter how you look at it. Definitely looking forward to this game which is now one of my most anticipated 2011 releases.

I have read in magazine that story is set before the books and will include things like Targaryen invasion of Westeros etc, it will not cover one period but many important events in history of the setting.

It better, otherwise the lore will be fucked. It'll be nice to see some of the Targaeryns during their prime.

Writer of crappy fics, I hope you might derive some enjoyment from them.

Yeah seeing Aegon the Conquerer and Balerion the Black Dread will be very nice.

Hope this will be good, there never is enough strategy games. Only Total War series keeps me interested.

Anything with Game of Thrones is always interesting. Bought Fantasyflightgames boardgame of that same name years ago and played it countless times with my friends and have to say could be best 5-player boardgame i have ever played. And played over 200 of them.

This computer version if done well could be really good and popular since series is about to start soon.

This is exactly the kind of strategy game i've been waiting for, where you can truly get down to the nasty shit of assassinations, betrayals, secret alliances, economics etc. Too many strategy games seemed to be based solely on the mililtary aspect without diving too much into the politics. It also can't hurt that its based on A Song of Ice and Fire, im currently on A Clash of Kings and really enjoying the series so far.

Looks and sounds cool. Hopefully it'll be as good as the total war games. Especially Rome Total War.

My youtube channel. Feel free to stop by and have a look if you're interested. I do Airsoft, some warhammer related videos, and gaming videos.

The official site has been launched, along with a list of all eight playable houses. Houses Stark, Lannister, Tyrell, Martell, Targaryen, Tully, Arryn and Baratheon. Very nice choices, shame no Greyjoys though.
