Demon’s Souls is a brutally challenging PlayStation 3 game developed by From Software. Released in 2009, director Hidetaka Miyazaki took a huge risk with this game, which favored player discovery over clear communication of what should be done next, or even how to hurt an enemy. That freedom was embraced by the player base, and the formula From Software established became the foundation for an entire genre of games.
