Telltale’s Game of Thrones Is Not A Prequel


One of the big announcements last year came from Telltale Games, creators of The Wolf Among Us and The Walking Dead episodic series’, in the form of a Game of Thrones title based on the HBO series. According to Telltale CEO Dan Connors, the game is not a prequel to the books or television show. While speaking with Digital Trends, Connors said:

It’s not a prequel. I think the show provides a timeline, but the world is huge. There’s so much going on and it’s so rich. Every decision that King Joffrey makes impacts so many people. Any microcosm in that world [looking at how] people are affected by the decisions that are made plays out across the whole thing.

The show does a great job of interpreting George R.R. Martin’s work, and his work provides a huge dictionary of knowledge about what the franchise is. It’s really a dream to sit down and say, ‘What’s our space in this world? Where are we in this world?’ And the world offers you so much to explore.

The upcoming Game of Thrones episodic series was initially announced at the VGX awards show last year by Telltale Games. It has thousands of gamers excited, no doubt.
