This 'Game Of Thrones' Interactive Title Sequence Lets You Literally Fly Over Westeros
Have you ever wanted to see the world of Game of Thrones through the eyes of a dragon? Well, good news: With Facebook's Game of Thrones 360 title sequence experience, you can! Word of advice: Before you hop on Drogon's back to go flying around Westeros, though, you might want to put on a Dramamine patch — or, you know, five. Because yes, going inside the title sequence — which quickly swoops over a CGI map of Westeros — is as epic as you are imagining, but if you're anything like me, it will also make you reconsider wanting your superpower to be flying, because admittedly I started to feel a little nauseous after a while. That said, zipping from King's Landing to Winterfell to Dorne is exhilarating — especially when you start stumbling onto the hidden easter eggs in the sequence.
That's right: Easter eggs. According to Inverse, there are seven easter eggs hidden in the video, and after an hour of touring Westeros and beyond, I found three... I think. Maybe you will have better luck and not get stuck staring at the sky for five minutes like I did.
If you can't find any of the other easter eggs, do yourself a favor and look skywards as you pass under The Titan of Braavos around the 1:24 mark. (Also, if you have ever wondered what exactly the Titan was hiding under his skirt, you can now find out for yourself in delightfully graphic detail. I'll spare you the preview.)
The video has way more to offer than just things that will make you giggle uncontrollably, though — it also has a direwolf lurking at The Wall. Is it Ghost? Could this be yet another clue that Jon Snow will be alive again soon? Is it actually Jon warging into Ghost's body?
OK — it is probably none of those things, but still, direwolves are always cool, especially when you catch a glimpse of one while you are soaring over The Wall. It's not like that is something you get to everyday.
Hands down, the best part of the video is getting a closer look at the intricate design of the titles, though. From the sudden burst of color from the blooming Weirwood trees to the serpent wrapping itself around the top of Dorne's spire, there is so much detail packed into the titles it will blow your mind"
Check out the video below and prepare to make your phone swoop like Drogon chasing down a farm boy if you want to see everything. Remember to fly responsibly, everyone.
