steamforged mini Dark Souls has become well known as one of the most punishing games currently out, and so of course with that kind of notoriety someone has to turn it into an equally tough game.  Steamforged games will be publishing the Dark Souls game and have said it will be a brutally hard exploration game for 1 to 4 players.  The game will focus on fast set-up with a long reveal, which translates to a small initial setup with a board you explore and expand similar to Escape: The Curse of the Temple, so you don't know what is coming before it's right on top of you.  They hint at an innovative behavior mechanic to control the monsters which will force players to play strategically and manage their stamina in order to survive.  The minis are also shaping up to be high quality and they have said the base game will include a good amount of content with Dragon Slayer Ornstein and Executioner Smough being two of the bosses being included.  Plus with tons of already created content from the Dark Souls video games, they won't being running out of ideas they can add for a while. Needless to say, they are doing good so far hyping the game and we won't have to wait long for more information as the Kickstarter campaign launches on the 19th of April.  You can head over to the Facebook post to read all the info and you can also Like the Steamforged page to get more updates.
