It's easy to say you'd love to live in the world of [Game of Thrones](movie:817617): adventure, fantasy and dragons can be pretty alluring until you remember that at least two people die per episode. So, instead of wishing your way to a certain, probably gruesome death, the folks at Telltale Games (creators of the award winning [The Walking Dead](series:201193) game series) decided to welcome fans into House Forrester in the latest installment of the television show's companion video game series.
The game focuses on three young members of House Forrester that quickly find themselves partially responsible for the survival of their family, and the realm around them.
House Forrester is in disarray. Their liege lord and his heir are dead, and Ironrath is occupied by Whitehill soldiers. The survival of the family depends upon those who are left. Placed at King’s Landing, the epicenter of intrigue, Mira Forrester must weigh her loyalty to Margaery Tyrell against the needs of her family, while choosing how to play the political games of Tyrion Lannister. One misstep could spell doom for Mira and her entire family. To the far north, Gared Tuttle finds that the wall and its crows hold little love for a squire from the Wolfswood, but finds kinship in the bastard son of Ned Stark. Gared must prove worthy of becoming a ranger in order to carry out the mission given him; one that is vital to the future of those he serves. To the east, Asher Forrester, the exiled son, is called back to Westeros to aid his family, but how can one man help when the Boltons rule the north with an iron fist? Meanwhile, an unexpected source of hope returns to the Forresters, but Ironrath is no place for the weak.
If you've ever wondered what it might be to learn from Tyrion, kick it with Jon, or be besties with Margaery, now is your chance! The games rely heavily on decision-making, and many choices that the player must make can prove to be fatal.
