Dante Alighieri's 14th century masterpiece The Divine Comedy has now inspired a video game. Electronic Arts Inc. has announced that it is working on a new game based on Dante’s Inferno.

“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,” said Jonathan Knight, Executive Producer for Dante’s Inferno. “It’s the perfect opportunity to fuse great gameplay with great story.”
