On September 22, 2011, the first part of the Dark Souls series appeared in Japan. Since then, From Software has offered players many challenging adventures, and there are many indications that the best is yet to come.
From Software has been developing games for 34 years, but it’s no secret that many gamers learned about the studio only in 2009 – then Demon’s Souls debuted on PlayStation 3. The demanding and intriguing production never lasted, but the developers suggested Dark Souls in 2011. .
Since then, the developers have taken care of a few more projects, but from the programs they focused mainly on developing challenging adventures:
- 2011 – Dark Souls
- 2012 – Core V Armored
- 2012 – Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn
- 2012 – Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor
- 2013 – Armored Core: Judgment Day
- 2014 – Dark Souls II
- 2015 – Dark Souls II: The Realm of the First Sin
- 2015 – Bloodborne
- 2015 – Diary Monster Hunter: Poka Poka Airou Village DX
- 2016 – Dark Souls III
- 2018 – Uproot
- 2019 – Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

Dark Souls changed the view of many gamers in games, and at the same time, thanks to From Software, a new genre was born, which was developed in various ways by subsequent developers. It’s hard not to get the impression that production’s celebration of the decade had a huge impact on the entire industry.
I’ll never forget when I bought my first Dark Souls – I didn’t know what to expect, I had never played Demon’s Souls before and couldn’t understand ‘why this skeleton is so strong’. Later it turned out that this was just the beginning of a very long journey.
