First Screens from TellTale’s soon to be released GoT Game

Purported photos have surfaced from the new TellTale GoT based game series. Game Informer is reporting that they were posted in a Twitter feed but TellTale has not confirmed that they are official screen grabs from the game.  They do say, however, that they are similar in style to TellTale’s other games and probably are legit.  

There are a total of eight screen shots that show stills of not only Cersei, Tyrion and Margaery, and others that I presume are members of House of Forrester.  The article also says that the game should be released before the end of 2014.

    1. The visuals definitely look worse and less inspired than The Walking Dead, and especially The Wolf Among Us. Although, that could just be a result actually being familiar with the characters’ real-life counterparts. It’ll also be strange to hear different voices coming from familiar faces. Looking forward to it all the same, despite the usual Telltale shit we’ll have to put up with.

      What do you mean by this? I’ve never followed Telltale before now, so I’m just curious.

    3. Bill,

      Pretty sure that’s not Ramsay. Probably one of the Forresters. As evidenced by the Cersei, Margaery and Tyrion pics, if they’re trying to make the character models look like the actors, they can get a lot closer than the supposed Ramsay pic.

      Morgan,

      In the last few years, ALL of their releases have had game-crippling save bugs and atrocious framerate issues.

      There was also a serious drop in quality for Walking Dead season 2 and The Wolf Among Us, as much as I love the latter one. And the issues of publishing dates not being correct and the episodes being pushed back again and again.

      No wonder since they were making 4 games at the same time, hopefully they did devote enough resources for GoT.

    5. Cian,

      Yeah, I didn’t think they were going to bring so many show characters into this, but now that they are, I would rather they have translated them into their usual comic bookish style, just to put some more distance between these models and the real actors and get them out of the uncanny valley territory they’re in right now.

    6. Josh,

      That guy looks closer to Ramsay than the Margaery model looks to her. Their style just narrows the faces somewhat, which I think is why Ramsay looks a little off. But the vest matches his outfit from the beginning of season 4 and the facial expression is very Ramsay. Plus their earlier teasers directly hinted at the Boltons being part of the story.

    7. HBO announces Westworld is going to series in 2015. Best bet is the Fall slot now vacated by Boardwalk Empire. This show will be the next “Big Thing” and will probably carry the flagship once Game of Thrones wraps up.

      It was looking a little thin for a while with True Blood and Boardwalk Empire wrapping up but with the emergence of True Detective and Game of Thrones becoming the biggest show they’ve ever had, HBO has some big tentpoles they can use for the next few years to launch their new hits.

      If Westworld hits, that takes care of their Fall period and with Game of Thrones transitioning into The Leftovers and True Detective in the Spring and Summer, they’re covered off really nicely there. Even having comedies like Veep and Silicon Valley tagged along with GoT has worked well for them since both of those shows are critically acclaimed and awards darlings.

      The only blank spot now is the Winter session. True Detective held the spot last year and was a huge success but now that it has seemingly moved its production cycle to air every summer, there’s a hole there. Girls obviously gets its buzz there but it’s only half an hour and they need to pair it with a heavy drama. Once they find this project, we could be looking at a year long dominance we haven’t seen from HBO since the early 2000’s (Sopranos, Deadwood, Wire, Six Feet Under, Sex and the City, Carnivale, Rome).

      Westworld btw, stars Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Thandie Newton, James Marsden (Cyclops), Evan Rachel Wood (Vampire Queen Sophie), Miranda Otto (Eowyn!) and Jeffrey Wright (Dr. Narcisse). And it’s produced by JJ Abrams and written by Jonathan Nolan (brother of Chris). And it’s based on a Michael Crichton novel so yeah, it’s kind of a big deal.

    8. Afeastfordances,

      Mmm. I’ll reserve final judgment until I see/hear it in action, but until then I’m remaining sceptical. I wouldn’t worry about narrow faces, though. The aspect ratios on the source images are all off for some reason.

      hodoringhodor,

      Exactly. At the same time, even if they do dedicate enough resources to GOT, does it really matter in the long run when they’ll just refuse to release patches and iron out problems? As much as I adore The Walking Dead Season 1 and The Wolf Among Us (and Back to the Future!), I’ve really soured to Telltale over the past year.

      One and the same although the show will most likely tone down the cheese and flesh out the scenario in order to fit into the ongoing series template (much like the BSG reboot did).

    10. King Tommen,

      I watched the first season of both the Leftovers and Silicon Valley and even though they have great production value and watchability, IMO they are nowhere near the level of the Sopranos, Boardwalk, GoT etc. The leftovers by far had the stronger premiere season and lots of potential to turn into something great. Silicon valley however is more of a niche series with a narrower audience (tech geeks, nerdy humor). Jonah from Tonga was funnier than S.V.

    11. Darjan,

      Comedy is subjective so I won’t really argue about what does and doesn’t make you laugh. I like Silicon Valley a lot and thought it had a very strong first season. But you are right in saying that it’s a niche comedy that will appeal to a specific audience. I’d make an argument however that the vast majority of HBO comedies could be described the same way. It was nominated for a handful of Emmy’s so at the very least, it along with Veep have critical acclaim which is in many ways is all that HBO asks from its shows.

      I am a massive fan of The Leftovers and think it’s doing something extremely unique and interesting on television. I acknowledge at the same time that it’s a very polarizing show that some people are turned off by. I still think it’s cool.

    12. I still don’t understand what type of ‘game’ this is. Does it actually involve game play where you are walking around/fighting and actually involved throughout? I haven’t had a gaming system for several years, and even if I did, I doubt this would really interest me. I need to be more engaged in a game, and if I can’t run around beheading a bunch of asshole queen’s men, then it’s not worth my time and money.

    13. Patchy Face,

      From the character descriptions, it seems like the robots will be main characters who learn their reality isn’t real. That’s a guess, but it could be an intriguing take on the material. The original was basically Jurassic Park shading into Yul Brynner as the Terminator.

      To be fair that seems to be a problem with most game releases and they all need few patches before running as planned – all new buyers are beta testers these days!

      It’s a point and click game. And you don’t need a console to run it. It will also be available for iOS (iphone and ipad).

      Telltale games are story driven and not about gameplay. It’s more of a “Heavy Rain” and “Beyond Two Souls” type of game

    16. Turncloak,

      Last I heard about that project was over a year ago. Del Toro has about 8 million projects he’s currently trying to develop so I have no idea where this one is at or if it’s dead.

      The HBO project that does seem to be further along is the adaptation of Maddaddam, the Margaret Atwood book trilogy that Darren Aronofsky is going to do. That seems very interesting but there’s nothing imminent there either.
