Actors from the main Game of Thrones TV series reprised their roles for the video game, providing voice-acting for the in-game appearances of their characters, including Lena Headey (Cersei), Peter Dinklage (Tyrion), Natalie Dormer (Margaery), and Iwan Rheon (Ramsay). Other actors and characters from the main TV series were to appear in later episodes.
In an interview with Eurogamer on August 29, 2017, Telltale's head of creative communications Job Stauffer stated that plans for Season 2 were on hold due the other games they are working on and because they want to see where the narrative of the Game of Thrones TV series goes. Job Stauffer said that the project was having a hold up at least until the Game of Thrones TV series ends with Season 8. 
On September 21, 2018 it was announced that Telltale Games was undergoing a studio closure which meant that multiple Telltale employees had been laid off with just 10% of the staff staying on to fulfill the company's obligations to its board and partners". The second season of Game of Thrones: A Telltale Game Series, as well as all of Telltale's other in-development projects, were canceled upon the majority studio closure and eventual bankruptcy and collapse of Telltale Incorporated. The status of the game's canonicity in relation to the television series is uncertain.
Following the news of Telltale Games' closure on 21st September 2018, Season Two was cancelled. After reforming under new management, Telltale Games later clarified that they no longer possess the license for Game of Thrones, as is the case with many of their games.
Game of Thrones, also known as Game of Thrones: A Telltale Games Series, is an episodic graphic adventure game developed and published by Telltale Games for Android, iOS, Microsoft Windows, OS X, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. It is based on the television series of the same name.
The game follows the episodic format found in other Telltale titles, where player choices and actions influence later events across the six-episode arc. The story revolves around the northern House Forrester, rulers of Ironrath, whose members, including the five playable characters, attempt to save their family and themselves after ending up on the losing side of the War of the Five Kings. The game includes settings and characters from the series of novels A Song of Ice and Fire and the television adaptation. Emilia Clarke, Iwan Rheon, Kit Harrington, Lena Headey, Natalie Dormer, and Peter Dinklage reprise their roles from the television series as Daenerys Targaryen, Ramsay Bolton, Jon Snow, Cersei Lannister, Margaery Tyrell, and Tyrion Lannister, respectively.
After previous video games based on his works received negative or mediocre critical responses, George R. R. Martin opined that he wanted "a Game of Thrones game to be made by a studio that knows how to create a thrilling and interesting story". Telltale Games had found critical success in several licensed adventure games, including their The Wolf Among Us and The Walking Dead episodic video game series. Game of Thrones arose from internal discussions within Telltale of what other popular franchises they wanted to write games around, with much support given for Game of Thrones, considering its emotional equivalence to The Walking Dead. They approached HBO with the concept, and after a year of negotiations, were able to secure the license.
In December 2013, Telltale announced Game of Thrones at the 2013 Spike VGX video game awards program. George R. R. Martin stated that his personal assistant, Ty Corey Franck, was working with Telltale Games as a "story consultant". Telltale's CEO Dan Connors explained that the game would not be a prequel to the television series, and that the established world and timeline of Game of Thrones allowed Telltale to explore fixed stories in more depth, to appeal to players.
Game of Thrones is an episodic point-and-click graphic adventure fantasy drama video game, released as 6 episodes following the model of Telltale's previous adventure games. The player is able to move their character around some scenes, interacting with objects and initiating conversation trees with non-player characters. Choices made by the player influence events in future episodes. The game switches between the viewpoints of five different characters.
Some scenes are more action-oriented, requiring the player to respond to a series of quick time events. Failure to do these correctly may end the scene with the death of the playable character or another character, but the game will restart at a checkpoint just before that scene to allow the player to try again. In some instances, failure at particular quick time events results in minor game decisions.
The game takes place concurrently with the television series, from the end of the third season until just prior to the start of the fifth season. The story focuses on House Forrester, a family not introduced in the television series, but mentioned briefly in the novel A Dance with Dragons. House Forrester hails from Ironrath, a fortress within the Wolfswood forest in the North of Westeros, where they control the valuable Ironwood groves, coveted by many because of the wood's military importance. The game primarily takes place near Ironrath, but also in other locations on the continents of Westeros and Essos.
Game of Thrones is an episodic adventure game series that consists of six installments that were released between December 2014 and October 2015. The six episodes are:* Game of Thrones: Episode 1 - Iron From Ice
It is based on both on the original fantasy novel series A Song of Ice and Fire and the HBO TV series adaptation. From the TV series it takes the appearance and voice acting of famous characters such as Cersei Lannister, Tyrion Lannister, Jon Snow, Ramsay Snow, Daenerys Targaryen and Margaery Tyrell. It also takes place concurrently with the TV series, starting at the moment of the Red Wedding at the end of the third season and following the events just up to the start of the fifth season. It does not expand upon or contradict the TV series, as it focuses mainly on House Forrester. It is a family not yet mentioned in the TV series, but briefly mentioned in the fifth book A Dance with Dragons. As such it is a spin-off and does not deliberately break the canon as the book does not contain any detailed information about House Forrester, but it introduces the Forrester viewpoint for many prominent characters and events. The game is set mainly in the Wolfwood region, known for its forest and carpentry supplying the other Houses, and especially the fortress Ironrath. Other prominent locations are also present, such as King's Landing or the Wall, and many others on the continents of Westeros and Essos.
The gameplay is typical of previous Telltale games focusing on choices and consequences. Most of the gameplay consists of conversations where the player has to choose between dialogue options. Choices are remembered and important ones are carried over across episodes, leading to branching stances for the relations with the different characters. Most of the conversation options have a time limit and if none is chosen, silence or a neutral stance is activated. For a small amount of important decisions there is no time limit. There are some sections with free movement where characters can freely explore to initiate conversations and examine the environment. Objects and characters that can be interacted with are highlighted with a white circle showing options. There are no puzzles, but in some cases it is possible to pick up items, stored on the left side of the screen, that can then be used in later situations. There are some action sequences with Quick Time Events. If these are not performed correctly or fast enough, characters can die and a part has to be replayed. Some other small interactions are also available, usually based on a dragging and holding mechanic. After completing an episode a rewind function becomes available to return to an earlier part of an episode and try new choices.
The season premiere episode is available today on PC and Mac from the Telltale Online Store, Steam, and other digital distribution services, and on the PlayStationNetwork for PlayStation 4 in North America (SCEA). The episode will be available on Wednesday, December 3rd on the Xbox Games Store for Xbox One and Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, as well as the PlayStationNetwork for PlayStation 4 in European (SCEE) territories.
