The Mistborn trilogy of high fantasy novels will leave its mark on this medium with a prequel game in development for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, and Mac. Mistborn: Birthright will feature an original story written by Brandon Sanderson and is expected to release "late next year."

"As an avid gamer, I'm extremely excited by this opportunity," says Sanderson. "The chance to write the story for a Mistborn game while working with a team of talented developers is, quite literally, living a dream."

This RPG is centered around Allomancy, the act of gaining abilities by ingesting and burning different types of metals. In terms of game mechanics, it sounds like a natural fit. I can't say I'm familiar with the books, but having a large base of information to draw from should make Game Machine Studios' life easier.
