Game of Thrones Goes Retro-Old-School-Platform-Style

The first person to make any kind of comment about the impending arrival of the cold season will be sent to Joffrey and used as a target practice dummy.

When it comes to head-rolling, arm-stump-waving, family-stabbing, fleet-of-ships-exploding, pot-of-boiling-gold-on-the-noggin action, Game of Thrones has got you covered. It's one of the most entertaining TV shows in years. However, the same can't be said for the sad, shambling mess of a game that was rushed out to cash in on the show's huge appeal at the end of last year.

But wait! Here's a Game of Thrones game that looks fun. Created by Abel Alves. a Spanish comic artist currently residing in Uruguay, his game of Game of Thrones is a classic, retro-take on the series in the form of an old-school platform game. Whether it looks more 8-bit or 16-bit is arguable, but I'm sure everyone can agree that its price tag is a winner: the princely sum of absolutely nothing. Meaning I can avoid making some hideous, cliched comment about Lannisters and debt repayment. Huzzah!

Here's a video, so you can see what it's like, and if you fancy downloading it, here's the source.
