Quick — how could you completely ruin the amazing Game of Thrones universe expertly crafted by the books and the HBO series??
If you answered, "With a watered down game for Facebook called Game of Thrones Ascent, of course," you are 100% correct!
This is just proof of brand exploitation!
HBO and Disruptor Beam Studios just hatched a
dragon deal that will not contain the adult-themed material in the show, but promises to let players, 'venture through the ranks in order to achieve greatness by exploring the land and utilizing strategy to overcome the odds.'
Here's what Jon Radoff, CEO of Disruptor Beam, had to say:
“Everyone at Disruptor Beam was a huge fan of Game of Thrones long before we began working on the game, so we recognize that other fans expect character-driven conflict and intrigue to take center stage in our new game. Westeros is the perfect setting to deliver on our vision of weaving stories through decisions and social interactions.
Game of Thrones Ascent will bring the world of Westeros to the over 500 million social game players in the market today, featuring original artwork in a highly engaging game experience that is, most importantly, fun for fans and their friends!”
YAWN. Maybe if you get to play as Jon Snow.
The game is still heavily under development, so there aren't many gameplay deets. Otherwise, we're going to recommend to stick to the brilliantly wonderful season unfolding on HBO right now on Sundays!
