Ever since their massive success with The Walking Dead: Season One and Season Two, Telltale Games has become widely known for games that focus on story and the player’s freedom to mold it. More than a complex control scheme, Telltale’s games depend on the choices you make and the alliances you form with other characters. Pouring through the details of the game’s dialogue trees and exploring the world with a keen eye can mean the difference between life and death for a friend, success or failure in pursuit of your goals. The HBO series, Game of Thrones, finds itself quite at home in such a frame.
