Divine Comedy: The Game

That was close! So much more I wanted to add, but didn't have the time.

Made for the Newgrounds Game Jam 5. the theme was Literature, and were allowed to pick our own litereary works and make games based off of them. Our team chose The Divine Comedy, by Dante Alighieri. We wanted to include all 3 epic poems in the collection: the Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso, but we ran out of time, and could only make a game based off of the Inferno.

Well this game was interesting it was different for sure and I think some things could run smoother as a whole but I did like what you had here and overall it's notbad at all and runs well as it's own style and unique game play so anyways nice work here I liked this

Decent game and really doesn't need any changes maybe some slight polish but not even that


I guess the game was somewhat playable. That's not a compliment. What I didn't like how was the animation looked pretty bad. It is cool to have a game based on classic literature. I don't know how faithful this is as I haven't read the poem. I should do that.

The music was okay. The game jams have given us much better stuff. Was this guy supposed to be Jesus? Why would he be in Hell? I wish you could jump on the enemies.


That game was horrible I didn't have fun SRY

i don't understand

the divine comedy was extremely graphic story even before dante got to hell how did a game based off it manage to get an E rating. And where is that one guy who guided dante through the 7 circles of hell. other than that i wish there was some type of fight inthis game. it was mario without any means of defence other than dodge and briskly walk in the other direction. i will say that it was way better than anything i could make so 6/10

Great game, I wish I could've played more of it.

I got into world 1-2 and then I kept trying to get the health pack and then I lost all of my lives and then, just like kimmy0stars, it wouldn't let me restart. I was sent back to the menu, I clicked play, sending me to the instructions screen, then I clicked play there and was told my game was over. I think you forgot to have the game say that you get more lives once you start over.
