Bioware Takes Inspiration From GRRM

Bioware, makes of such classics as Baldur’s Gate, Neverwinted Nights, and Knights of the Old Republix, are working on a new computer roleplaying game called Dragon Age. What’s interesting for GRRM fans is the fact that Bioware has stated that they’ve taken some inspiration from “A Song of Ice and Fire”.

We did a little digging and found this post from the lead writer on the game discussing the many things that have influenced him while working on the game, and he says, “I’d be lying if I said that the George R.R. Martin books weren’t a big influence on me.”
