The Best Game Of Thrones Video Game So Far Is 8-Bit And Free

The console game was rubbish, the browser-based social strategy game lacks action -- what's a Game of Thrones fan gotta do for a satisfying video game adaptation of their passion? Spanish comic artist Abel Alves offers this free solution.

Like the fabled NES games of old, Game of Thrones: The 8-Bit Game foregoes telling George R.R. Martin's entire story (or what's he's done so far), instead focusing on four characters as they battle their way through key moments in the saga. We've got Jon Snow heading to the wall, seen above. In the official trailer below, we get a glimpse of Daenerys Targaryen, perhaps looking to recover her stolen dragons from those creepy bald guys.

I'm not quite sure who the other two characters are supposed to be. Oh well, one way to find out -- Game of Thrones: The 8-Bit Game can be downloaded for free right here.


    The best game of thrones game so far is a Crusader Kings 2 mod.

    omg, those projectile waves, the direwolf ability, and the floating platforms!

    It's exactly like how I envisioned it!

    When even game developers can't tell the difference between 16bit and 8bit style graphics I realise there is no hope left for anyone to care or understand the difference.
