Regular readers of this Not A Blog and my website will recall that the French studio Cyanide licensed the rights to do a pair of videogames based on A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE — a Role Playing Game (RPG)and a Real Time Strategy (RTS) game.

They’ve been busy ever since, both in France and Montreal. And now, in partnership with Focus Home Entertainment, Cyanide has unveiled some of the art from the RTS, which will be called A GAME OF THRONES: GENESIS.

So herewith a look at the Wall and Castle Black, as they will appear in the RTS. Enjoy!

“A GAME OF THRONES: GENESIS plunges you into the heart of the battles and intrigues between the Families that shaped the Kingdom of Westeros,” the press release from Cyanide and Focus promises. “However, victory does not necessarily result from brute force. The innovative game mechanics provide players with numerous paths to success: will you opt for a military, economic or diplomatic approach? Trickery, treachery and deceit are widespread and you will constantly have to watch your back if you want to avoid a bitter defeat! Peacefully or forcefully annex surrounding territories, besiege enemy castles, send spies to infiltrate behind enemy lines, assassinate trouble-making officers or capture them to ask for a ransom… When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die. There is no middle ground!”
