Yup, you hear it right. A custom Sega Genesis NHL 94 Rom created by “The Sauce” created a Game of Thrones Rom you can use on your Genesis emulator to play for the Iron Throne!
9 House Teams…
The White Walkers…
The Westeros Hockey League…
A Battle for the
Cup Iron Throne has begun!
WINTER IS HERE!!!
Some ROM details include
- It contains the 9 major Houses plus the White Walkers as playable teams. As a bonus, I also threw in an 11th team that contains NHL Hall of Famers (the best of the best). Teams 12-32 are not playable. They are simply team #11 repeated/copied as placeholder.
- The playoff structure is set-up so the winner of the Houses squares off against the White Walkers for the Iron Throne. Because there are 9 houses, but only 8 can appear on the right/left brackets (see screenshot below), I programmed it to rotate every house out of at least one playoff scenario. So, in turn, no one is truly left out.
- All players, who are not White Walkers, are named by [Last Name], [First Name]. So, for example:
Lannister, Jaime, Lannister, Cersei, Lannister, Tyrion Etc.
This was done because, when you score a goal, the pop-up window only shows the number and last name of the scorer (and whoever got the assist(s)). That’s confusing if a team has all of its players with the same last name. So now, when a goal is scored, the first name appears (with their number). However, in all other game sections, you should see first and last name listed but in the order structure mentioned above. Not exactly a big deal (IMO).
- Not every character from the GoT universe is in the game. I only included those who are part of these major houses (both alive or dead). I apologize to all you Hodor or Brienne of Tarth fans. Lol
Some characters included may not have been in the TV series but, they are in the books.
- As there are several women in the rosters, they are all defaulted to 144 pounds in weight (as we can’t go any lower).
- The team colors are based on their respective house flags/banners. Those flags/banners serve as the Team Selection &Center Ice logos. As the White Walkers don’t have a banner, I found something that serves as one (a skull with a crown).
We find this absolutely AMAZING and will be having a tournament this weekend! Videos to follow!
