Lords of the Fallen Dev Acknowledges Comparisons to Dark Souls, Offers Own Take
Executive producer says it’s up to people to acknowledge whether the changes made are positive or not.
Say what you will about Lords of the Fallen, CI Games’ dungeon crawling action RPG, and how it compares to Dark Souls. But when a game like this becomes a success and has a sequel on the way, does it really matter which game it apes (especially in this day and age)?
Apparently it does to some and executive producer Tomasz Gop spoke to Game Informer about how he responds to such comparisons.
“If someone tells you, ‘This place feels like your parents’ house,’ you can’t tell them it’s not true, even if you don’t feel that way at all.
“Or like what the Oracle told Neo in The Matrix – it’s like being in love. Uhm…I guess, what I mean is, no matter how much we see Lords as a game of its own, if someone says it feels ‘totally like Souls’ to him/her, I can only acknowledge that.
“The issue is not whether these comparisons happen or not. It’s rather whether people who base their judgment on it will see things we’ve done differently as automatically inferior because they’re…not like Souls. Hope not.”
The critics at least agree they’re not the same though some believe otherwise. What are your thoughts on the same? Let us know in the comments.
