PREPARE TO DIE: INTERDISCIPLINARY PERSPECTIVES ON DEMON'S SOULS, DARK SOULS AND BLOODBORNE

Rudolf Thomas Inderst, Pascal Wagner, Christof Zurschmitten



 

Hardly any current franchise deserves a more in-depth examination in game studies than the Souls series, which has been under development at the Japanese studio FromSoftware under the leadership of Hidetaka Miyazaki since 2009.


Demon's Souls, Dark Souls, Dark Souls II, Dark Souls III and Bloodborne fascinate both the gamers, the specialist press and game research, which is bundled with the present volume for the first time in German-speaking countries to take a closer look at the series.


Thematically, the authors take up the narration and themes, the spatial design and the social component of the individual games. The volume includes contributions from a total of 16 authors and provides a profound insight into a game series that has already sold more than 25 million copies worldwide.
