Telltale: Game of of Thrones will not be a prequel
Telltale Games' take on George R.R. Martin's Game of Thrones will not be a prequel to the books. Speaking to Digital Trends, Telltale Games CEO Dan Connors explained that Martin's created universe is so huge it allows Telltale the opportunity to explore other aspects of the story.
"I think the show provides a timeline, but the world is huge," Connors explained. "You’re talking about the politics of an entire– it’s like Europe and some other continent. 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," Connors concluded.
Telltale's Game of Thrones was first revealed back in December during VGX. Not much was said about the game, other than that it will follow a storyline closer to the show than the books. Game of Thrones television network HBO is also said to be involved in the game's development, but, again, we don't have much in terms of details.
