Devolver Digital Games, who have previously published the charming Reigns: Game of Thrones, are at it again with a Game of Thrones-themed mobile game. This time, That Silly Studio has developed Game of Thrones: Tale of Crows which has been released as an Apple Arcade exclusive for subscribers to the iOS service. The particular genre of mobile game—an “idler”—means that actions and decisions are made periodically, sometimes after hours or even days of nothing in particular going on.
In this case, the game has you play as a succession of Lord Commanders of the Night’s Watch, making decisions and awaiting their repercussions as well as new challenges and surprises in real time; a raven that takes a day to reach its destination in the game will actually take a day before you see how it’s received, as an example. Unlike some other games in this genre, Game of Thrones: Tale of Crows has no in-app purchases or advertising, so what you get is an actual, narrative-driven game that presents some choices and decisions matched with what looks like some lovely, minimalist art depicting Castle Black, the Wall, and the lands beyond.
Below is the trailer Devolver Digital released for the game:
