Editor notes (2)

The connections to Judeo-Christian mythology are thin, but it was apparently the author's intent to make this connection. The author planed to include much more content referencing Dante's Inferno. For example, there were originally 9 levels, not 3. There were also plans for many more characters and the player participating in their conflicts. There was supposed to be an alignment system that interplayed with conflicts. The dialog in the game clearly indicates all of this.

The premise is that your friend didn't show up, and you found a strange note on his fridge. Later you're with your girlfriend and she's curious how it went with your friend, but you explain he wasn't there and mention the strange note. Of course she has to ask what was on it and you recite it to her, only to find your girlfriend disappear. Assuming foul play, you call out without reply, except for a phone call apparently from Heaven. Trying to explain what happened, you incredulously, as you can't believe that could possibly be it, utter the incantation again. And so begins our adventure, with you, your girlfriend and your best friend all in Hell, separated from each other.
