Exit: From Software

This is a reluctant valentine for me. It’s time to clear the air. I want to begin by saying that I could be From Software’s biggest fan. I am not Japanese. I am a US American. I am not a fan that obsesses over minutia. I just genuinely love the things I love. And nothing has had a greater impact than “From” for me.

So it is natural I wholeheartedly embrace Sword of Moonlight. I trained my entire life for something like this. And it is fitting I found what I was looking for all of this time among those things that I treasure most. I ask what could be any cooler than a chance to make your own game? Not just any game. A game with a major league licensed IP attached to it. The original 3D game. One that by all rights as far as you are concerned is the king of video game IPs!

No company would give away its very successful IP right? Well From Software did just that. It is an admirable humanitarian gesture isn’t it. The people behind Sword of Moonlight must have come to realize it could never be a money maker. Sure so-called “game makers” looked like a viable genre back then. But Sword of Moonlight was something else. It is PC software. You don’t need it to distribute your newly minted PC games. And by the way. What you do with them is up to you. As long as you stick to original and or King’s Field IP you’re golden (although companies holding King’s Field licenses abroad may beg to differ.)
