Fans of Robert Jordans Wheel of Time series of fantasy books will be pleased to hear that Red Eagle games will be making a series of games based on the books, according the VentureBeat. The Wheel of Time centers around the wheel mentioned in the title that controls the turn of time, those that spin the wheel, and those humans that have the power to control and manipulate those that spin the wheel, and harness its energy. When one of these humans inadvertently unleashes a dark spirit on the world, the group is plunged into a typical battle of good vs. evil.
With 11 books released and 44 million copies sold, three of which topped the bestseller list, the Wheel of Time isnt exactly an obscure series. The games will be launched alongside a movie series based on the novels, but this doesnt mean that the games will be your regular tie-in. Rather, it will represent whats becoming a growing trend in the entertainment industry by sharing the rights to make both the game and the film to a very high standard.
