Mobile hit Reigns is going to tackle Game of Thrones next

Swiping is coming.

There's another new game based on Game of Thrones on the way, but this one is a little bit different to Telltale's graphic adventure or the long-forgotten action game from 2012. It's a spin-off from mobile hit Reigns, and will adapt that game's swipe-to-rule mechanic to the brutal backstabbing world of the Seven Kingdoms.

There's a brief glimpse of how the gameplay works at the end of that trailer but for those unfamiliar with Reigns and its sequel, Reigns: Her Majesty, the idea is that you play as a royal ruler and must make important decisions by swiping left or right. The goal is to keep all the different factions in your kingdom happy - or happy enough not to kill you - while also protecting your borders and not running out of money. You can see how it's a natural fit for the ruthless fantasy soap operatics of Game of Thrones.

Reigns: Game of Thrones launches in October, for iOS, Android and PC via Steam.

Dan has been playing games since the 1980s, and doesn't plan on stopping any time soon. Also, get off his lawn. You can contact him by email if you need to know exactly how to leave his lawn.
