Have you heard of Game Transfer Phenomena? It’s the habit of taking video game experiences into the real world. And while scientific research into the process is still relatively thin on the ground, I bet you’ve done it yourself. I know I have. Every shopping mall air vent is a Batman stealth takedown opportunity. Every rooftop is ripe for Nathan Drake-esque traversal. Every viewing of Game of Thrones incurs an “imagine if Dark Souls did something like this” piece of commentary. With Elden Ring, it sort of has. 

Because while crafting the latest of FromSoftware’s typically dark, twisted and hard-as-nails action roleplayers, Hidetaka Miyazaki and his team sought the creative services of the A Song of Fire and Ice author George RR Martin. A Song of Fire and Ice, of course, was adapted into HBO’s A Game of Thrones fantasy drama series. “I have some good memories of those initial discussions,” says FromSoftware’s creative director Hidetaka Miyazaki in an interview with Edge magazine. “[George RR Martin] actually knew about the Dark Souls games. I knew immediately from talking to him, it just became apparent his skill and his passion for the fantasy genre, and for games as well.”
