Learn how Dark Souls has become one of the most successful game series of all time despite its difficulty

Shaye Ruecker breaks down how Dark Souls thrived as one of the most successful game series of all time despite the crushing difficulty and esoteric lore, while showcasing gameplay of some of the most iconic and difficult bosses in the series.

The "Souls" series of games are infamous for being extremely difficult and punishing. The game design, story and mechanics are esoteric and strange. So why has it become one of the most popular game series of all time? Shaye Ruecker breaks down what makes the series special, the intricate and unique approach to story, game design and the rocky birth of the series and the overwhelming success of the franchise. There will also be live gameplay of the most difficult and iconic bosses in the series.

Shaye Ruecker is a video game collector and historian from Regina. With the growth and prevalence of digital only media, Shaye has spent the last decade cataloguing, collecting and preserving video games so that media isn't lost to time, and sharing exceptional gaming experiences with audiences large and small.
