While the Pokemon Go mania continues to sweep the world at a mildly terrifying pace, its developer has revealed that his “personal fantasy” is to see “Westeros mapped out on Earth”.

Pokemon Go developer Niantic’s product marketing lead Archit Bhargava told that the company is “really trying to create the genre of real-world gaming,” reports the Independent.

“There could be a board game you could make in the real world where people are capturing locations like Risk or something. My personal fantasy is a Game of Thrones game where Westeros is mapped out on Earth and you join House Stark or whatever,” he continued.

“No one’s really done this in a way that we were all excited about. It’s all about getting people moving, getting them exploring the world around them,” added Bhargava.

However, there has been no such official confirmation from Niantic whether they are planning to make Bhargava’s “personal fantasy” a reality. On the same note, since ‘Game of Thrones season 6’ raked in a massive 25.1 million viewers per episode, it is speculated to be a good one to start with.
