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’ most iconic prop should be even more massive than what you see on HBO

One of the most iconic parts of HBO’s Game of Thrones — besides nudity and brutality — is the Iron Throne that the king sits upon when ruling Westeros. Although it looks impressive on your television set, George R.R. Martin says it’s all wrong.

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.

Here’s what HBO’s Game of Thrones would look like inside Super Mario World

Three years ago, Game of Thrones blew away viewers with what immediately became one of the most iconic openings in television history. Paired with an epic score, the introduction to Westeros was both informative and imaginative, spanning continents while focusing in on some of the key locations of the story. The opening matched the tone of HBO’s show flawlessly, which makes YouTube user NicksplosionFX’s Mario-themed parody even more delectable. With the help of an 8-bit remix of the ubiquitous theme, NicksplosionFX has recreated the opening scene inside of the Super Nintendo classic, Super Mario World. From Yoshi’s Island to Bowser’s Castle, the Mushroom Kingdom isn’t quite as vast as Westeros, but the parody is spot on. Check it out below. More →

Stanford researchers map the world of Game of Thrones

The fourth season of HBO’s hit series Game of Thrones kicked off this past week. 6.6 million people tuned into the premiere, making it the most watched single episode of an HBO show since the series finale of Sopranos. Based on author George R. R. Martin’s fantasy novel series titled A Song of Ice and Fire, the show takes place in a mythical world consisting of four continents, one of which is Westeros. We’ve all seen the models of Westeros in the show’s opening credit sequence, but a group of Stanford researchers have taken things to the next level by creating a series of geological maps that shows us how the landscape of Westeros might have evolved over time.

HBO might finish Game of Thrones before author Martin does

Ever since HBO first began production on Game of Thrones, fans of the series have been acutely aware of George R. R. Martin’s deliberate writing pace. Despite a 15-year head start, Martin has only recently released book 5 of his 7 book series, setting up the distinct possibility of the show surpassing its source material before Martin has time to finish book 7. In an interview with NewsOK, Game of Thrones show writer Bryan Cogman discussed that impending predicament. More →
