Telltale Games Teases Game of Thrones, Hysteria Ensues
The folks at Telltale Games are masters of the tease. We haven’t heard a thing about their upcoming Game of Thrones series since it was first announced at VGX last December, then they announce that Tales from the Borderlands will be playable at PAX, so we all assumed the focus would be on Pandora. One tweet was all it took to throw us into a tizzy.

The above image was officially Tweeted by Telltale Games, leaving us with a vague quote and a hashtag to follow as we wait for an official screenshot, video or something of substance for Telltale’s venture into Westeros. This wait is getting unbearable.
An analysis of the quote by hardcore Game of Thrones fans suggests we may be playing as a member of House Forrester, one of the houses without a single known character in the book or TV show.
According to IGN, all we know about House Forrester is that “they’re from the Wolfswood in the North and sworn to House Glover of Deepwood Motte. Also in the books, they’re mentioned as the scouts Lady Glover sends to help Stannis Baratheon travel through the Wolfswood as he travels to Winterfell.”
Back in March, in an interview with Digital Trends, Telltale CEO Dan Connors has revealed that the game will be set in the HBO universe, which makes this even more interesting. A completely original character in the lore makes the most sense for Telltale, as that’s what they’ve done with The Walking Dead and Tales from the Borderlands, and it seems to be working for them. Stay tuned for up-to-date coverage on Telltale’s Game of Thrones once more information is available.
