Game of Thrones Web MMORPG Details

Bigpoint reveals new details about their browser-based Game of Thrones MMORPG that was first revealed late last year. A preliminary website is online, and they say the game is in the works at Norwegian developer Artplant, and they say they expect it to go into closed beta testing in the fall. Here's a bit on how this will work: "Bigpoint’s design goal is to capture the show’s compelling drama and action and create a visceral gaming experience via an unprecedented level of visual fidelity. The bloodthirsty struggle for power, corruption, and deception will persist. To ensure survival of their dynasty, players must master combat and politics." They say more details will be revealed at next week's Game Developer Conference.

I just don't see this working out.

I love Martin's work...but it doesn't really make me want to play games based on it.
Exactly. What makes his work great is the characters, the drama, the story. None of it translates all that well really to any video game format, and particularly not an MMO.

But as for his books, he's probably my favorite author and has been for quite some time.

I like it too for the story, never wanted to be a part of it.
