I love this game, can't recommend it enough. The game and story change depending on which house you choose to swear fealty to at the beginning of the game. Each has different advantages. After you've gotten past the first of the current 3 volumes, you can reincarnate to a new character keeping only the power (game status if you will) and one talent, like the Stark Hunting Lodge or the Lannister Mine. So you can really get the whole story and perspective. You can also play for achievements, which works for us completion nuts. Your choices affect your character's values. I'm currently working on being a Spider sworn to the Lannisters. My only complaint would be my wife gets mad that I spend too much time on the game. This really is a great game.

Re: Ascent
I am a believer in indie game companies. And I think it is very generous of you to give them a shot at a great franchise. But seriously. If you can't do it yourself, you need to hire someone to assure quality control. This is YOUR NAME they are trading on. And insulating yourself from what people are doing with this license is going to harm your reputation down the road. Particularly among gamers. Gamers hold long, long grudges.
If I didn't care. I wouldn't take the time to post.
