A Game of Thrones screens are light on actual thrones, but rich in dragons

It's been half a year since Cyanide revealed early concept art for its adaptation of George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire novels. Today, publisher Focus Home Interactive revealed the first pair of screenshots from the series first outing, A Game of Thrones: Genesis, giving us a look at what the action therein will actually look like. Apparently, it's going to feature large, scary dragons. And villagers. And cottages which appear to enjoy being burned to the ground, signifying their approval with an olde-timey thumbs up placard. We think that's what's going on, there.

The publisher also revealed a few scant details about the title -- namely, that it will be a real-time strategy affair, with multiplayer support for up to eight different combatants. Victory can be claimed through force, diplomacy or subterfuge -- though, we imagine we'll be leaning on a healthy diet of all three.
