The Game of Thrones RPG, in development by French studio Cyanide and due for release May 15, promises to further flesh out the already-quite-fleshy world of George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire book series. As a game based on a show based on a book, or possibly a game based on a book with a show also based on it, it's going to have a lot to live up to in the story department.

As anyone familiar with the series knows, taking the black is no trifling matter. The game's plot looks like it'll uphold the series' signature cloak-turning, back-stabbing, drama-creating style, so hopefully fans will have nothing to complain about once they get their hands on it. And if they do, we can just send them to the Wall.

The second season of the Game of Thrones show starts on April 1. Are you more excited for that or the game? What about the sixth book, which is sure to come out some time in the next two decades? Let us know in the comments or on Twitter.
