Game of Thrones RPG Plans

French site FactorNews has details (in French) on a Game of Thrones RPG in the works at Cyanide, in addition to the previously announced A Song of Ice and Fire-based RTS game A Game of Thrones - Genesis. The project does not yet carry a release date, but they have word from Cyanide on the story, as they say (courtesy of Google Translate): "Cyanide has chosen to make an RPG strongly narrative, citing Planescape - Torment, Baldur's Gate II or KOTOR as an example." Thanks Joystiq/Big Download.

How is this IP a good fit for a MMO of any kind or even a video game???? It's a great series because it's different and is not a action based narrative. It's politics and intrigue.

Game of Thrones - Living Card Game by Fantasy Flight is an awesome game that feels like you are playing a game based on the series. If you haven't given it a try head down to Barnes and Nobles and buy the core set. It's $40 and plays great. Any action based game would not be this series.

Personally, this would be great for an RTS(Total War type of course). You have a very well defined map, you have defined kingdoms with particular skills/resources, etc.

As far as an RPG, an RPG that follows the story will be boring, but an RPG that occurs within the rich world will not be. Similar to KOTOR, set an RPG within a well defined and vibrant world and you have the basis for building a winner.
