'Game of Thrones' Not Good For RPG's


Game of Thrones Ascent developer Disruptor Beam thinks that the world of Westeros is not the perfect environment for classic RPG's.

In a recent interview with A-list, Disruptor Beam CEO Jon Radoff stated;
“I don’t think it’s a good environment about classic single player gamers. I have nothing to say about any games that might be set in the same universe."

“Traditionally, most RPGs are about beating up monsters and getting loot; that doesn’t work well in Westeros, but it’s a good universe for a strategic gameplay.”
Radoff stated that Westeros' politics make for great social gameplay.
“A lot of typical fantasy worlds like Lord of the Rings have clear cut good and evil where good guys form a band to fight evil and that’s not very dynamic for social games. In Game of Thrones Ascent, you can evoke all the feelings of the series,” he said.

“Westeros is a fascinating world for players to play in and be able to live out similar dramas and political intrigues that happen in the show.”
Game of Thrones Ascent will be coming to Facebook but has not yet received a release date.
