IGN Covers Game of Thrones: Genesis

The strategy game A Game Of Thrones: Genesis, being developed by Cyanide Studio, receives some coverage from IGN, a leading source of PC and video game information.

The interview with designer Regis Robinson illuminates some more details of the gameplay, explaining the single-player focus on a linear campaign covering the breadth of Westerosi history in the last thousand years (from the time of Nymeria’s landing in Dorne) to Robert’s rebellion. One important aspect that Regis emphasizes is the fact that the game really isn’t about resource-production or warfare—it’s about political intrigue and subterfuge more than anything else.

Also of note, a new release estimate (at least, it’s new to us): Q4 2011.
