The lights are on
An enterprising fantasy fan has made an 8-bit style platformer inspired by HBO's Game of Thrones.
Able Alves has created Game of Thrones: The 8-bit Game, which you can download on his website for free. It features many of the famous characters and locations from the show (and the books that inspired them), including the Wall, John Snow, and Daenerys. Stick around until the very end of the trailer for a quick glimpse of Theon Greyjoy.
Our Take:Eight-bit tributes are all the rage these days; it almost seems like a rite of pop culture passage to get one. Still, I'm a huge fan of the Song of Ice & Fire novels and the HBO show, so I'll probably give it a shot. I hope it has a Tyrion Lannister drinking minigame. Also, the iconic GoT theme song sounds great in the classic chiptune style.

really? hahaha it´s so cute and freak but I hope it's funny
And now my watch begins.
Looking forward to playing it.
It was amusing for a bit, no pun intended: but yea, still needs some work. No continues, you die that's it. Each character shares the total amount of lives you got, which if you are not going to give a continue or save/load feature, then give each character their own max lives. Otherwise it's neat enough to play through.
Is it still rated M? Because I do not think an M rating is enough to cover the show up.
Oh, I was just reminded of that one scene from this season. Thanks, Matt.
Really neat! And the music was really good in chiptune style.
Haha that's awesome.
It's Jon Snow, not John Snow
Seeing this is just a reminder to me that someone actually managed to screw up a current gen offering of the series. My mind goes wild with the possibilities of what could have been done on the ps3 with Game of Thrones. Still, I played through it. It does have a pretty interesting arena styled chapter in the sewers of kings landing.
Nice. I gave this a shot and it wasn't half bad.
At first I thought this would be another College Humor parody, then I realized they already did this one.
The controls are a bit stiff. I highly recommend reassigning the 'up' key to something else to make jumping a little more responsive.
