Dark Souls is an action role-playing video game developed by FromSoftware and published by Bandai Namco. Dark Souls was first released Fall 2011, as successor to the acclaimed game Demon’s Souls. The games, directed by Hidetaka Miyazaki, have been some of the most influential of the last decade. Both Dark Souls and it’s spiritual predecessor started out as sleeper hits. At first, the games received notoriety for their challenging difficulty, yet that merely touched the surface of their appeal. Gamers found themselves enchanted by the deep lore, the inventive level design and the lack of hand-holding. This at a time when many were disenchanted by too many slick, easy and unrewarding blockbuster games. Dark Souls was different, they felt, and captured what made role-playing games so great.
The Dark Souls games, of which there are three, have spawned a huge, dedicated following that shares thousands of YouTube videos and forum posts, covering every minute detail. They have also opened the eyes of many game developers, showing another way of doing things.
