Dante's Inferno is an adaptation of the medieval poem The Divine Comedy by Dante Alighieri. The dark fiction gave birth to the Tuscan Italian dialect and is widely considered to have defined the western world’s contemporary conception of hell and purgatory. The poem tells the tale of Dante who journeys through the twisted, menacing nine circles of hell in pursuit of his beloved Beatrice.
Scary stuff! The same team behind Dead Space are developing Dante's Inferno so it should be good.
