A Game of Thrones RPG Screenshots

The Cyanide Studios Website has a couple of screenshots from the company's semi-announced upcoming Game of Thrones role-playing game. Thanks Entropy, who mentioned this in our forums after thismorning's story about the game.

Well, just having two games with (almost) the same name can be confusing (just ask Bethesda, who go to town if you so much as think of using the word "scrolls").

They'd do well to publicise the fact that there are two distinct games here, but I'm sure they'll do that before release. When I saw the title of this thread, I thought maybe Genesis was going the King Arthur / Kingdom Under Fire root of mixing RPG and RTS.

Personally, if Genesis is going to be a standard Warcraft 3-style RTS then I'm not particularly interested (just not my type of game - to each his own and all that). I'm curious about this RPG though, and it'll be interesting to see what kind of RPG they're going for.

Yeah...I can see where it can be confusing at first look RTS and RPG all start the same and appeal to the same audience. But, the Real Time Strategy looks like it might be going for a quality almost as good as and hopefully better than Battle for Middle Earth II which is still the game I play when I get an RTS itch.

I really didn't know that they were going to do an RPG until I saw this. I did send blue an email on sept 13...tuesday last week...that the RTS was reported in GRR Martin's blog. Perhaps this report and the one this morning that the RPG is a long way off is to help clarify that there are two games now in development...the RTS is finished and just getting wrapped up while the RPG has just begun development.

I look forward to the RTS and will be judging what the RPG will be like based on it...perhaps not fair to the team in France, but I've been burned by so many RPGs catering to the elemetary school level that I'm very jaded.
