**Story of a saga video games...**

If the Dark Souls series managed to seduce players and journalists, it was
mainly by word of mouth. It was such a great success that Dark Souls 2 was
named “Game of the Year” 2014 by the vast majority of gaming magazines and
websites. To date, this saga is one of the most important in the gaming
industry. The odd thing is that these games are well known for their
difficulty and their cryptic universe. This publication narrates the epic
success story, but also describes its gameplay mechanics and its specific lore
across more than 300 pages. Characters, plots and the scenario of the three
Souls (Demon's Souls, Dark Souls and Dark Souls II) are deciphered by Damien
Mecheri and Sylvain Romieu, who spent a long year studying these dense and
enigmatic games down to the smallest detail.

**The serie _Dark Souls_ and her spiritual father _Demon's Souls_ will not
have secrets for you anymore!**


In May 2014, Hidetaka Miyazaki succeeded Naotoshi Zin as president of
FromSoftware, after the studio was purchased by Kadokawa Shoten. This was a
highly significant promotion for the person who had led the company’s most
successful project, Dark Souls. And yet, he did not lose from view what had
attracted him to the field: an insatiable creative drive. In spite of his new
status within the studio, one of the conditions he requested and was granted
was to remain creative director of his new project: Bloodborne. This allowed
him to successfully design this spiritual successor to the first Souls game,
while also assuming his new responsibilities. Given his drive to work and
create, it is not surprising how quickly Miyazaki moved up through the ranks.


Passionate about films and video games, **Damien Mecheri** joined the writers
team of Gameplay RPG in 2004, writing several articles for the second special
edition on the _Final Fantasy_ saga. He continued his work with the team in
another publication called _Background_ , before continuing the online
adventure in 2008 with the site _Gameweb.fr_. Since 2011, he has come aboard
Third Éditions with Mehdi El Kanafi and Nicolas Courcier, the publisher’s two
founders. Damien is also the author of the book _Video Game Music: a History
of Gaming Music_. For Third Éditions, he is actively working on the “Level Up”
and “Année jeu vidéo” collections. He has also written or co-written several
works from the same publisher: _The Legend of Final Fantasy X, Welcome to
Silent Hill: a journey into Hell, The Works of Fumito Ueda: a Different
Perspective on Video Games_ and, of course, the first volume of _Dark Souls:
Beyond the Grave_.

Curious by nature, a dreamer against the grain and a chronic ranter, **Sylvain
Romieu** is also a passionate traveler of the real and the unreal, the world
and the virtual universes, always in search of enriching discoveries and
varied cultures. A developer by trade, he took up his modest pen several years
ago to study the characteristics and richness of the marvelously creative
world of video games. He writes for a French video game site called
_Chroniques-Ludiques_ , particularly on the topic of RPGs, his preferred
