Here's something strange that's getting a lot of traction on Twitter: Is a Game of Thrones game coming to the App Store (and Nook)? Massive mega-fan site just posted the vague teaser image you see to the right of a definite Game of Thrones app icon. Now, before you roll your eyes and say, "Eh, they're just releasing the books, dummy," consider this: The books are all totally available on both platforms. You can buy the Game of Thrones books individually and in a four book virtual boxed set (leaving A Dance with Dragons as the odd man out). You can also buy previous seasons of the show from the iTunes Store, and HBO has a number of official companion apps also available.

So, submitted for the approval of the Midnight Society, the suggestion of a Game of Thrones mobile game. My head is spinning with cool possibilities, ranging from things as simple as some sort of interactive gamebook to something as complicated as Clash of Clans where players can build their own armies, align themselves with one of the houses, and battle the others? When you've got a universe as vast as the one laid out in the A Song of Ice and Fire series, the possibilities are endless.

No further information seems to be available currently, but, seriously, I'd play the heck out of some sort of Game of Thrones game. Fingers crossed that's what this is, and not just another weird tie-in app!

    Nah, it could probably be city building simulation.

    To me the icon looks like an North vs South, 2 players battle (board?, RTS?) game.

      Or it could just mean the title of the series maybe ?

  • BGrifter

    Probably Angry Birds Of Winterfell or something equally awful. Didn't the console Game of Thrones title turn out lousy?

    • Eli Hodapp

      You joke, but I'd play the shit out of this.

    • toxiccheese

      I would love an angry birds tie-in!

      The console title was not a very good game but had an awesome story

  • Woodlandstar

    Could just be some kind of interactive episode guide.

    Just like The Hobbit, I wish Nimblebit or Rocketcat/Madgarden were working on a sweet old school RPG for Game of Thrones... But a kingdom builder were make a lot more sense HERE than for The Hobbit. Still pissed off that The Hobbit sucks so much with how cool it could have been if the license was used properly.

    Also, sweet Are You Afraid of the Dark reference! Totally random, but makes me want to pull out my AYAotD DVD!

    Please let it be a Geoffrey slapping game.
