Perdition is a modern sidescrolling odyssey through the classical underworld of Dante and Virgil that seeks to provide the player with a unique visual experience alongside gameplay that is both adaptive and immersive. As the player descends ever deeper into hell, they will be faced with a game that reacts to their individual play style, adjusting both the character, terrain, and story to match. While the world is heavily inspired by classical and medieval epic, the game’s lavishly painted backgrounds take their cue from the works of Gustave Doré, Albrecht Dürer, Rembrandt , and William Blake. Just as our story takes place in the modern era, however, so too have the styles of these incredible artists been revitalized and invigorated with the addition of brilliantly lush watercolors. Perdition aims to create an experience not just as a game, but rather as the exploration of a work of art.
