Sadly, not many have found success, but Telltale Games wants to turn that trend around. More →

Telltale Game of Thrones Adventure Game

This looks like the video game ‘Game of Thrones’ fans have been craving for years

This looks like the video game ‘Game of Thrones’ fans have been craving for years

It’s incredibly hard to take an established property and convert it from one medium to another. The rate of success for movies and TV shows being adapted into video games seems to be getting a little better every year (see: Shadow of Mordor, the LEGO games), but there are still plenty of franchises that have yet to have their day in the sun. Game of Thrones is one of them, but Telltale Games could finally give the fantasy phenomenon its due later this year.

What Westeros Should Really Look Like On Game of Thrones

This is what the Westeros should really look like on HBO’s Game of Thrones

This is what the Westeros should really look like on HBO’s Game of Thrones

As much as George R.R. Martin appreciates what HBO has done for his stories, he still thinks its portrayal of the scenery in the Game of Thrones series is wrong, or at the very least not what he personally envisioned. That’s why he spoke at 92Y in Manhattan on Sunday about his new book The World of Ice & Fire that chronicles the history of Westeros and what everything should look like.

Game of Thrones Subway Map

Travel in Westeros would be so much easier with this proposed Game of Thrones subway system

Travel in Westeros would be so much easier with this proposed Game of Thrones subway system

Complex transit maps are usual daily sightings, but few of them are actually artsy, as they have a more useful purpose in mind. However, graphic designer Michael Tyznik has come up with a unique, and very interesting, subway and rail map, which may be the best you’ve ever seen so far. Too bad public transportation isn’t actually possible in that particular location, at least not as the designer imagined it. More →

Watch as individual scenes from Game of Thrones come to life with CGI

Between the practical stunts, the engrossing performances and the beautiful locations featured on Game of Thrones, the special effects that tie the show together often go unnoticed. Mackevision, one of the visual effects studios working on the HBO smash hit, has shared a highlight reel of its work on season 4. The studio does everything from sprucing up the backdrops to crafting large cities to giving real-life sets a digital makeover with just enough medieval panache to pass as part of Westeros.
