In an interview with International Business Times, Steve Allen (Senior Vice President of Publishing for Telltale Games) announced that Telltale Games’ upcoming release Game of Thrones will be focusing on multiple character narratives by featuring five player characters. All five characters belong to one family, and the choices and actions of each individual character has consequences for the family as a whole.
This announcement continues to up the ante as far as playable antagonists go in Telltale games. Telltale’s other upcoming title, Tales From the Borderlands, features two playable characters, allowing the player multiple perspectives on the story.
While details are scarce for Game of Thrones, Telltale has stated that the game is still on track to have its first episode released in 2014 along with the first episode of Tales From the Borderlands.
I have a great amount of affection for Telltale Games. I thoroughly enjoyed Back to the Future, and once I played The Walking Dead: Season One, I was all in. I am ecstatic to see Telltale get to work with so many high profile IPs, and will continue to purchase everything that they put out. They are absolute masters of interactive storytelling, and they consistently floor me with their superb content. I also love Game of Thrones the franchise as well, to me this is peanut butter and chocolate, it’s just meant to be.
