This post contains spoilers relating to the ending of Demon’s Souls.
A few months ago, when I thought Demon’s Souls multiplayer was going offline, I wrote up some of my experiences with the game’s unusual multiplayer elements. I was burning through the game as quickly as possible (which wasn’t all that fast), but it looked like I wouldn’t be able to finish the game in its original form. Naturally, only a week after my article was posted, Atlas announced that the multiplayer servers would remain active! My grueling trek to the end would remain filled with the questionable hints, hilarious death scenes, and downright terrifying hostile PvP invasions.
Several weeks ago, after many deaths and thousands of lost souls, I finally finished the game. Now that the initial sense of numb disbelief has worn off, I wanted to return with a few more thoughts on Demon’s Souls and its conclusion.
