I just throw that out here
Mastermind and Creator of the videogames Demon Souls, Darksouls 1-3 and Bloodborne (and more)... stated in a recent interview with gamespot to the question what inspires him:
There are some board games too, like Eclipse. The design of Eclipse is amazing, it's really fun.
So maybe there is hope either for an "space exploration videogame" or an "dark souls board game" Dark souls 3 will be the last "souls" title for some time afterall
