Fans on the lookout for developer Telltale's "Game of Thrones" were served with a trick or treat mind game in the form of eight leaked screenshots, reportedly uploaded by Twitter account lifelower. Game Rant said the photos have been removed, but vigilant netizens took the short-time opportunity and stored them -- now they've become viral.

A French PlayStation 4-dedicated website (click to see) also posted the images.

The photos are quite appealing after all, with characters adopting fine details from their TV counterparts. It must be noted, however, that Telltale hasn't released an official statement confirming their legitimacy. The developer itself appears to be subtle when it comes to dropping hints on the franchise.

So the big question remains: Could they be real?

Game Informer noted that Telltale is releasing "Game of Thrones" after "House Forrester." In another report, the outlet cited that "Game of Thrones" will be a six-episode series.

Just recently, Gamespot reported that Telltale has released a new teaser for the game -- revealing that "Iron From Ice" will be the first of the six episodes. According to the outlet, the developer will be "taking advantage of all the [series'] fiction" for its adaptation. Of course, this sounds very promising. But we'll still have to wait until it comes out.

According to Polygon's note, the game series will be covering events from the third to the fifth season of its TV counterpart. The fifth season arrives in 2015.

Telltale's episodic game series is based on George Raymond Richard Martin's novel work "A Song of Ice and Fire." SparkNotes wrote that Martin began writing the saga in 1991; HBO acquired television rights to the franchise in 2007.

HBO's "Game of Thrones" stars Aidan Gillen, Lena Headey, Jack Gleeson, Natalie Dormer, Stephen Dillane, Michael McElhatton, Gwendoline Christie, Jerome Flynn, Rory McCann, Alfie Allen, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Peter Dinklage, Charles Dance, Pedro Pascal and Carice van Houten, among others.

The game adaptation is expected to arrive at the end of this year, wrote IGN. The source mentioned that Martin's personal assistant, Ty Corey Franck, was appointed by HBO to help Telltale develop the game. This appears to be an interesting collaboration!

Platforms expected to get the first episode of Telltale's "Game of Thrones" include PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, iOS and PC.

What do you think about the screenshots? Are they real or fake? Vote below!
