Game of Thrones: Seven Kingdoms (WWW)
A browser MMORPG developed by Bigpoint in cooperation with the experienced Norwegian studio Artplant. The game is based on the fantasy novel A Song of Ice and Fire written by George R.R. Martin. Game of Thrones: Seven Kingdoms is set in the same time frame as the first volume of the books and it focuses on the conflict between the houses Lannister, Baratheon and Stark, who all want to have their own man as the king’s governor. In the game the player isn’t a member of any of these houses. Instead, he belongs to one of the lesser houses and he can decide which side of the conflict he will join. The game focuses mostly on PvP mode in which the player fights other players. The combat system is very action based – reflex and a good tactical sense are required for victory. Later in the game the player also participates in giant battles and sieges of strongholds, the conquering of which provides access to resources and tax income.
