George R. R. Martin's best-selling novels A Song Of Ice And Fire series has been made into television series (The Game of Thrones) by HBO and RTS game (A Game of Thrones — Genesis) by Cyanide. Now according to gamasutra, the well-known MMO developer Bigpoint (the creator of Battlestar Galactica Online) is making a Game of Thrones massively multiplayer online role-playing game based on George R.R. Martin's books.
We know very little about the Game of Thrones MMO at the moment, but George R.R. Martin himself will work with the German MMO developer and publisher on this project. In fact, George R.R. Martin is also working with other developers on a Game of Thrones RPG and a social game. HBO's award-winning TV series has brought the audience "lots of sets and big battles, dragons, magic", and A Game of Thrones — Genesis has taken players to go through the 1,000 years of the fictional history of Westeros. Can we expect some in-depth RPG gameplay from the MMO adaptation?
