EA Announces Dante's Inferno Game

Jonathan Knight wrote:

the time is right for the world of interactive entertainment to adapt this literary masterpiece, and to re-introduce Dante to an audience who, until now, may have been unfamiliar with the remarkable details of this great work of art. It’s the perfect opportunity to fuse great gameplay with great story


Just when it looked like the computer game might actually climb out of the slime-pits of mediocrity and start recognising itself as an emergent art form (Mask of the Betrayer and BioShock giving some credence to the idea), shit like this is created. The Divine Comedy... as an FPS.

What next? Don Quixote as a rape simulator?

I really don't think TDC is exactly computer-game material. Mind you,
I haven't played a computer game in years...

You're right - its form is inherently ill-suited to an interactive medium.
