Adobe has collaborated with some talented concept artists to create virtual reality tours of parts of Game of Thrones’ Westeros never previously brought to the screen.
You don’t need fancy VR hardware to enjoy this virtual reality A Song of Ice and Fire, a cardboard viewer with your smartphone and the latest YouTube app will work.
In order, here are the parts of Westeros you’re able to look around in while in the virtual reality and the artist who helped bring them to life.
- Golden Tooth – Home to the key Lannister vassal House Lefford. Created here by Manuel Grad.
- Strongsong – House Belmore’s ancestral home, a strong family and support of House Arryn. This version was created by Rene Aigner.
- Widow’s Watch – House Flint’s ancient home, sworn allies of House Stark and guardians of the Narrow Sea. Some believe it was a Flint who became the Night King. Art experience created by Manuel Grad.
- Kingdom of the Ifequevron – The Kingdom of the Wood Walkers is in North Essos, so not technically Westeros at all. Illustrated by Chris Sanchez.
- Valyria – All that remains of the Valryian Empire, where the dragonlords and House Targaryen came from before The Doom. Art experience by Max Riess.
- Five Forts – While the Wall guards the North, far from Westeros, the Five Forts are an ancient bastion on the border of the Golden Empire of Yi Ti. History records that the Pearl Emperor used them once to defend against the demons of the Lion of Night. Artist Sven Sauer.
- Chroyane – Once known as the Festival City of the Rhoynar, the city of Chroyane was beautiful and rich until destroyed in a war with Valyria. Now the ruins are cursed and the Stone Men live here. Brought to life by Falk Boje
- Bleeding Sea – Turned red by strange plants. Illustrated by Benjamin Nowak.
- Tyrosh – A former military outpost of the Valyrian Freehold, the Tyroshi are rich slavers with a fashion for bright colours. Brought to life by Claudio Pilia.
