Game of Thrones: Iron From Ice

Need a Game of Thrones fix? Telltale Games, the studio that developed the extremely well received Walking Dead game, is creating a six episode Game of Thrones video game, called Iron From Ice. Here's a description from the studio:

"This new story tells of House Forrester, a noble family from the north of Westeros, loyal to the Starks of Winterfell. Caught up in the events surrounding the War of the Five Kings, they are thrown into a maelstrom of bloody warfare, revenge, intrigue, and horror as they fight to survive while the seven kingdoms tear themselves apart. 

You will take on the role of different members of the Forrester household, and determine their fate through the choices you make; your actions and decisions will change the story around you."

The art style of the game has the similar "painted" look from their Walking Dead game, which I only played one episode of but still enjoyed. In this trailer narrated by Cersei Lannister, you see glimpses of Cersei, Tyrion, Margaery, and Ramsay Snow. According to the description, you don't play as any of these characters, but will run into them as the game's events coincide with season four of the show. The Forresters are characters from the books and not the show, so there's definitely some leeway in what the writers can do.

No word on a release date so you can check out more information on the game from the Telltale Games site, and here's the teaser trailer for Iron From Ice.
