puzzleboxpuzzlebox Telltale Alumni

Based on HBO's award-winning television drama, Game of Thrones - A Telltale Games Series tells the story of House Forrester. Caught up in the events of The War of the Five Kings, they are placed in a precarious position where members of the household must do everything they can to prevent the house from meeting its doom.

Our game series is based on the world, characters and events seen in HBO's TV show, which in turn is based on George R. R. Martin's books (A Song of Ice and Fire). The events in our game series begin towards the end of Season Three of the TV show, and end right before the beginning of Season Five. You will visit familiar locations such as King's Landing and The Wall, as well as unfamiliar locations such as Ironrath, the home of House Forrester.

House Forrester is a noble house from the Wolfswood in the north of Westeros. Bannermen to House Glover, they have always offered unswerving loyalty to the ruling great house of the North – the Starks. The Forresters are seated at Ironrath, an imposing stronghold surrounded by towering ironwood trees. Built over fifteen hundred years ago by Cedric Forrester and his triplet sons, Ironrath is a testament to the strength and endurance of Ironwood. The Forrester house words are 'Iron from Ice', which echoes their belief that - like the ironwood itself - the adverse conditions and unforgiving landscape of the North only makes them stronger.

Ironrath sits on the edge of the largest ironwood forest in Westeros, which has proven to be a strategic advantage for the House. The trees are a valuable commodity; many of the best weapons, ships, and defensive structures include the use of ironwood. House Forrester controls the majority of the ironwood forests in the Wolfswood, much to the chagrin of their bitter rivals, House Whitehill.

Although the Forresters have not appeared in HBO's TV show, they are canon to the world created by George R. R. Martin, having appeared in the book 'A Dance with Dragons'.

You will play the game from five different points of view. Each character you play as is a member of House Forrester; either a direct family member, or a person in service to the House. Scattered across Westeros and Essos, each character will play their part in seeking to save House Forrester from destruction.

Playing as five characters not only reflects the epic scope of Game of Thrones, but is also something that the player needs to be mindful of. This is because the actions of one character can ripple out to affect the rest of House Forrester. Multiply the actions of one character by five, and you're truly playing the Game of Thrones…where you win, or you die.

Additional details on the series and its upcoming premiere episode, 'Iron From Ice' are forthcoming. Stay tuned here to the Telltale Games Blog, twitter, and Facebook pages for more information as we approach the premiere, the first of six episodes, which will be arriving for download soon on PC/Mac, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and iOS, with additional platforms to be announced.

  • I Think its good thing that we are not playing as a known House since their stories are pretty much set in stone and the player cant do very much to change the fate of house Stark or lannister

    playing as a lesser house also means that the characters can move freely around the world without it contradicting the storylines of the show or books

  • It'd probably be a waste of cash for Telltale.

    Though they did release it on the Vita, which also had terribad sales, but, you know, that's probably because of their little partnership with Sony.

  • Oops, yeah....Silly me. I read it was 6 episodes but forgot for a brief moment when I was posting.

    As in regards, to spoilers, I'll steer clear of the GoT part of the forum until all 6 episodes are released (I'll still visit TWD and TWAU parts though).

    Its 6 episodes AND you'll gonna need a goodl shelter not to see or read any spoilers along the way waiting.

  • Good luck with that friend. If you managed to accomplish that, you have my sincere respect and admiration. :)

    Here's the description of what House White Hill is. House Forrester's rival. "The White hills are one of the few northern families to follow the Faith of the Seven instead of the old gods. They are also sworn banner men of House Bolton."

  • I second this motion.

  • It's a realistic Lord of the rings drama with twists, realism, dragons, sex, gore... good dialogues also. A lot of characters to take in at first but if you could get into TWD you can probably get into GOT.

    I mean playing it without watching tv show seems weird for me.

    Already tried, I just couldn't get into it.
