Dante's Inferno
« on: December 11, 2009, 08:43:05 am »



Plot
Quote
Dante's Inferno is based on the first part of Dante's Divine Comedy. The player controls Dante, a veteran of the Crusades, who chases his beloved Beatrice and attempts to free her soul from Lucifer, who needs to wed a heaven-bound soul to break free of Hell and make another attempt to take over the Throne of God. As his pursuit takes him through the monstrous entities within the nine Circles of Hell to save Beatrice, Dante must face his own sins, his family's past and war crimes.

* Prologue
o Dante returns to his home to find his lover, Beatrice Portinari, has been murdered, and witnesses Death drag her into Hell. Giving chase, Dante steals Death's scythe and begins his journey to save Beatrice.
* The First Circle of Hell - Limbo
o Meeting the soul of the poet Virgil, Dante begins his descent into Hell, fighting demons, unbaptized babies and other tormented souls. He rides on the back of Charon, the ferryman, to reach the serpentine King Minos, the Judge of the Damned, whom he must defeat to continue his journey.
o Confirmed Bosses: Charon, King Minos.
* The Second Circle of Hell - Lust
o Reaching the second circle of Hell, Dante discovers Lucifer is personally holding Beatrice's soul, even dressing her as his hellish bride and deceiving her into thinking Dante broke his vow to her. Dante must journey to the phallic tower in the center of this circle's endless hurricane to defeat Queen Cleopatra, who rules as one of Lucifer's regents.
o Confirmed Boss: Cleopatra
* The Third Circle of Hell - Gluttony
o Having defeated both King Minos and Cleopatra, Dante journeys to the next circle, one populated by gluttonous demons, great landscapes made of living organs, storms of human waste and giant gorger worms with insatiable appetites. There he must face the "great worm", Cerberus, a mass of worm-like stomach protruding from a open maw.
o Confirmed Boss: Cerberus
* The Fourth Circle of Hell - Greed
o Defeating Cerberus, Dante enters the circle of Greed, which is mechanical in nature compared to the previous circles. Within the circle are occupants who are boiled alive in molten gold below, condemned for spending their life hoarding and or wasting riches. In this "factory of torture," Dante will be faced with the horrendous puzzles of the Wheel of Fortune which is used to deliver punishment, and come face to face against the fallen god Plutus, a living golden statue.
o Confirmed Boss: Plutus
* The Fifth Circle of Hell - Anger
o Dante continues to search for Beatrice and confronts Phlegyas, a giant, flaming demon who Dante unknowingly rode across the River Styx. Escaping the behemoth's fury, he witnesses the beast entering the City of Dis, and he must follow if he is to save Beatrice.
o Confirmed Boss: Phlegyas
* The Sixth Circle of Hell - Heresy
o Upon entrance into Hell's capital, the burning City of Dis, Dante descends into the lair of the Heretics who are trapped in flaming tombs and nailed to inverted burning crosses. The Dark Priests, necromancers and conjurers are free to worship the "Fallen One" and guard this circle. The souls of the ancient followers (Ex. Abraham) are trapped here as well, waiting the arrival of "The One" and their redemption. Dante also encounters a former Crusader friend who died because of him.
o Confirmed Boss: Unknown At This Time
* The Seventh Circle of Hell - Violence
o Dante enters the seventh circle of Hell and must traverse a river of boiling blood, the Wood of Suicides and a desert of buring sand.
* The Eighth Circle of Hell - Fraud
* The Ninth Circle of Hell - Treachery
o Having journeyed through all of Hell, confronted his past and atoned for his sins, Dante must now face Lucifer in his true form: a giant, three-headed demon. Only by defeating the Prince of Darkness himself can Dante save Beatrice, and his own soul.
o Confirmed Boss: Lucifer

You basically fight your way through the nine circles of hell to get to Beatrice. Dante the character you are playing is not in any way like the one in the book though, The devs says that if they would've used the Dante from the book, the game would suck.

Weapons



Deaths Scythe: Dante's primary weapon is a scythe, which he steals from Death itself. So far it has been confirmed that the scythe can be in 3 sorts of modes. Normal, Spear and then a sword version. The scythe can be upgraded.



Holy Cross: The holy cross which is given to him by Beatrice before her death. It fires a burst of light that push away anything in its path. I don't know how effective the cross is. But I've heard that it is meant to push back enemies.

Magic: Not much information has been said about this. All i know is that it is different from the cross. I will update when i know more.

Punish or Absolve
This is basically how you upgrade you equipment. Throughout hell are several "Shades" which you can interact with. Shades are the people who go to hell for making poor choices in life. They are bound for eternal pain and suffering. So with theese Shades you can either Punish them or Absolve them. If you punish them you kill them with your scythe, and so the scythe grows stronger. But if you absolve them you send them to Purgatory (or heaven i don't really know). And thus your cross becomes more powerful.

This thread is mostly not made by me, I liked the lay-out and I'm a lazy bastard. I take no credit for this thread.



So, any thoughts? It kind of looks like a GoW clone more or less, although I'm fairly interested in the story.

Dear god that Cerberus is scary/ugly as hell.

You'll never know why.

Cerberus was supposed to look like somebody intestines puked out. A job well done I suppose.

This I will probably buy.
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

Played this weekend, finished the game in two days. It was awesome. The scenery is amazing, the story was good and the final boss battle wasn't too hard and the ending video was rewarding. If you have a few days to play, rent it and play it!

I hate this game it has the most annoying checkpoint system, the puzzles are usually plain annoying because of the camera just deciding to randomly teleport and you can't turn on the damn subtitles when you've started a game who in godsname invented that?

wow, we had different experiences. I loved this game, I haven't been drawn into a single player game like this in a long time. The puzzles weren't too bad though one I just couldn't do. I unlocked a bunch of stuff at the end including a new costume for Dante.

I couldn't play it, I can play the most gruesome nasty games out there, but shortly after I came across the unbaptized babies I stopped playing. It was a bit to much for me.

I have this game but I can't play it. It's like it's locked away in a safe and I don't have the combination for it.
You can probably find me, if you have pesterchum, under burningOrigins or cantankerousZealot.
