Recently I bought the game Thymnesia. I knew it was called souls like and I have no problem with the mechanics.
But the animation for activating the safe points was do Bloodborne like. Also you had a safe zone, like the Hunters Workshop, with a little girl by your side resembling the doll.
Another example would be the game Wolcen Lords of Mayhem. There you got treasure insects instead of treasure goblins.
I am curious because I recently read that Monster was suing companies for using the word „monster“ in games or titles.
Why is it so different when copying game mechanics?
