Based on the critically acclaimed book series A Song of Ice and Fire, by screenwriter and novelist George RR Martin, A Game of Thrones - Genesis is billed to immerse "you into the heart of the battles and intrigues between the Houses that shaped the Kingdom of Westeros," according to the press release.
A Game of Thrones - Genesis follows a thousand years of history through this series, and follows the April 17th HBO series premier of Game of Thrones. With the debut of the video game this summer, Mr.Martin has the trifecta of media - books, TV and video games - to claim his name to. Their are board games and RPG games based on this series too. I'm very intrigued by the storyline, and the screenshots that Cyanide released today for the game along with launching the official website, help too.
Basically, the book series encompasses a fictional wold between two primary contintense, Westeros - in the west - and Essos, you guessed it - in the east. There are some humans, some people called the "Others" (name reminiscent of LOST, but definitely not the same people) from the North. So who's from the South? There is war between some families in Westeros, while the Others (from the North) are threatening to attack from the other side a very large wall of ice.
