Game of Thrones Ascent brings George R.R. Martin's tale of incest and intrigue to Facebook

Disruptor Beam has announced it has aquired a license from HBO to create a social game to accompany the hit series Game of Thrones.

Set in the fantansy world of writer George R.R. Martin, Game of Thrones Ascent will sing A Song of Ice and Fire to users on Facebook.

Social gamers will take the part of a Westrosi noble, choosing their house, and combining the game's strategic and social elements to cement their holdings and make their claim for the Iron Throne.

:"Everyone at Disruptor Beam was a huge fan of Game of Thrones long before we began working on the game, so we recognize that other fans expect character-driven conflict and intrigue to take center stage in our new game," said Jon Radoff, CEO of Disruptor Beam.

“We recognize that one of the reasons Game of Thrones has been so successful is because of its large and ever-supportive fan community,” said James Costos, VP of HBO Global Licensing.

“For this reason, we are delighted to give our fans the opportunity to dive even further into the world of Westeros and live out tales of intrigue, sacrifice and deception inspired by the stories they love.”
