It seems that there are few in the world who don't know at least a little about Game of Thrones. Now that it's being turned into an MMO, even more folks will learn of the duplicity of the Lannisters and more. We caught up with Max Pfaff to talk about Game of Thrones Online. See what we discovered!
MMORPG.com: How has your relationship been with HBO and George R.R. Martin? What input did they have in the game?
Max Pfaff: We have a great relationship with both HBO and George R.R. Martin. Mr. Martin is not involved in the day-to-day workings of our project, but he’s been a great influence in the direction that we’ve taken the game. Bigpoint has the license to HBO’s show, and they are a wonderful partner. We collaborate with HBO in every step of the process, from the production to business elements of the Game of Thrones MMO; we receive valuable feedback from HBO as everything is reviewed and approved before launch. Naturally, with any licensed IP, we want to ensure that the game represents the lore as authentically as possible, while keeping the community and fans enthusiastic.
