Do you feel it, Zach?
My coffee warned
me about it.


Dark Souls is so hardcore man, it's unreal. It's brutal, just brutal! So I want to see how it would look as a more casual and gamer-friendly game.

Dark Souls 2 is releasing tomorrow on consoles and next month on PC so the timing is perfect for a big contest!



Prizes:
  • The top TWO entrants win a copy of Dark Souls 2 for a platform of their choice, courtesy of Something Awful!
    (Alternate equivalent-value prizes are available for top-two finishers who are either hardcore gamers that already preordered Dark Souls 2, or counterintuitive gamers that don't care about this release, even though they're posting Photoshops of it in a thread about it!)
  • For other podium spots - forum upgrades and/or a custom forums smilie which can be Dark Souls-themed if you want (or whatever).

Some ideas:
  • Photoshop Dark Souls characters/enemies into casual games.
  • Change the game's genre into something way more casual.
  • Make the game easier with casual mechanics, handholding etc.
  • What if Dark Souls was made by a mainstream studio like Bioware, Activision, PopCap etc.?

This contest ends Thursday at 5 p.m. central. Good luck and I can't wait to see your entries!

No, you wouldn't save so you could reload a previous save.

You clearly have not played Dark Souls.

I was also thinking I might throw on a chicken head, and add Fable UI full of fart emotes and Infernal Wrath, but I don't want to make it too complicated.

My boyfriend refuses to play Dark Souls because it doesn't have this feature in it (like Bioshock, Dead Space, etc) and it is therefore "too hard".




Exploration is part of the fun!
