Quick Shots – Game of Thrones screens could use some lamps

We’re all agog to see how Cyanide’s RPG interprets and presents George RR Martin’s popular fantasy world. Apparently the answer is “dimly”. Someone hand these guys a torch.

The RPG hasn’t been dated beyond “second quarter”, so with any luck will arrive before the next season of the HBO series, to tide us over – especially as it utilises assets from the first season. The game features two original characters – Mors of the Night’s Watch, and Alester, the red priest, with players alternating between the two.

Cyanide was also behind last year’s PC-exclusive strategy game, which didn’t go down very well. The RPG is expected on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
