Hello and welcome to the inaugural episode of The Fire Keepers: A Dark Souls Podcast! We will be going through the entire quintuplet of games in the Dark Souls universe in absurd and unnecessary detail, with new episodes popping up every second Thursday on Goomba Stomp!

Our first episode, which your beautiful eyes are staring adoringly upon, concerns Demon’s Souls. We open things up by looking at the game overall and how it fits into the series, as well as giving a bit of input as to how we came to find these games in the first place.

We also get into some of the unique mechanics and ideas that were first introduced in Demon’s Souls, and how they would go on to effect the gaming industry as a whole.


Thanks to MenasLG for providing our artwork, and thanks to BenSound for providing our theme music.

You can find our show on all major podcast services including: iTunes, Stitcher and Google Play.
