DID YOU KNOW?
Hidetaka Miyazaki, president of From Software came from a poor family? His family lived some 100 miles south-west of Tokyo. His parents could not afford to buy books so he had to borrow from the library. Even though some of the books were too advanced for him, he enjoyed reading them. He would use his imagination to fill out the parts he could not understand. From Software has been responsible for some of the most regarded games in the industry. The dark fantasy adventure Demon's Souls and its spiritual successor, Dark Souls. These games take you to a dark world of monsters and fiendish traps. Add to this, punishing difficulty that requires precision and skill. You have the formula for some of the most atmospheric and challenging games out there.
After the critical success of these games, Miyazaki went on to work on their next game, Bloodborne. Its world has moved from the past games' fantasy medieval setting. This time, it's in the dark and horror-filled Victorian era. This take on the horror game genre was a departure from the company's usual type of games. It was another critical success for From Software with fans across the world praising it. In a short time since, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice released to the world. It's a slight departure from the company's usual games. It's a stealth action-adventure game that features a stylized and colorful world. It's also a much more forgiving game but still requires skill and precision to win. The Sekiro skill tree is also quite generous allowing for various play styles. From Software can do no wrong and it's pretty exciting what game they come up with next.
