Three Game of Thrones tie-ins due in 2012

0

While fans of George R R Martin's epic fantasy saga, A Song of Ice and Fire, are used to putting up with the author's "it will be done when it's done" attitude, elsewhere in the franchise it's a lot more prolific. Hot on the heels of Cyanide's less than stellar A Game of Thrones: Genesis, the developer is working on an RPG for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Apparently the lucky buggers over at Cyanide have been getting sneak peaks at the second season of HBO's adaptation so that they will run parallel.

On top of this, Bigpoint, the developer behind Battlestar Galactica Online are working on a free to play MMO set in Martin's universe, as well as a casual game for social network platforms. None of them have release dates, but are due in 2012. Incest, murder and warfare? Sounds like a perfect fit for Facebook.

I'm a fairly big fan of both the books and the HBO series, but the pedigree of the developers working on these projects does not inspire me with confidence. Genesis was a definite miss, which leads me to worry about this RPG Cyanide are working on. The f2p market has quickly become saturated and social games rarely hold my interest for more than ten minutes. So none of these are initially all that interesting, but I'd love nothing more than to be proved wrong. In the mean time I'd rather just play the Westeros total conversion mod for Total War: Medieval II.
