Throne Together Is A Game For Windows 8

Last week we made the discovery that Microsoft had filed a patent for game software called Throne Together.  Obviously we had no idea what it was, but seeing as Microsoft promised eight brand new IPs at their E3 2013 press conference many assumed that this would be one of them.  Sadly, we were wrong.  The game is for Windows 8 and now Xbox One.

Throne Together is a free-to-play puzzle game for Windows 8.1 devices.  It is available now from the Windows Store.  Here is the official description:

“Place blocks to build castles for your royal clients and please the Castle Inspector in this addicting block-based puzzle game. Build wisely or risk being ‘overthrone’ as the kingdom’s premiere architect!

“With your dragon assistant Fidget, place doors, windows, gargoyles and more as
per your royal client’s specifications! But be careful – clumsy positioning and uneven weight will make your masterful castle crumble to the ground!”

So there you have it.  No Xbox One title.  It does make you wonder though, what are those new IPs Microsoft promised?
