When CI Games and Deck 13 delivered Lords of the Fallen , gamers couldn't help but notice similarities to the acclaimed Dark Souls franchise.
Well, here's the developer's take on that.
In a recent Game Informer interview with Lords of the Fallen executive producer Tomasz Gop, he addresses the comparisons in question:
"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."
Gop added that it doesn't matter if the comparisons occur; what matters is whether or not people think the different things in Lords of the Fallen automatically make it an "inferior" game to Dark Souls . "Hope not," Gop finishes.
Well, the art style and gameplay is indeed similar but after doing our review (linked above), we have to conclude that there are distinct differences. Wouldn't you agree?
