Brush up on ‘Game of Thrones’ with interactive recap-map
Season three of “Game of Thrones” starts tonight on HBO. If you’re in need of a bit of a refresher as to what happened when and where and with whom the past two seasons, check out this cool interactive recap-map.
As you scroll your way across the kingdoms of Westeros (there’s Qarth — the greatest city that was and ever will be!), info boxes pop up with brief episode synopses.
“The parallax scrolling effect was just icing on the cake, tying all the data and plot points together in a fun, interactive way,” said Roger Kethcart, editor of the web team that developed the map for Direct.tv. “I think the final product works at refreshing the memory about every episode without being too overwhelming.”
They’ll keep adding to the map as the 10-episode season three continues.
And in case you missed it, check out my interview in today’s Sunday Show with “Game of Thrones” co-creator D.B. Weiss, a Highland Park native.
