Dante brings his medieval mindset to Hell, Purgatory, and Heaven, where he finds humor, fear, denial, and forgiveness in a surreal vision of existence after death.

Thanks for the very interesting review, Becky, it answered all my questions about this game. So I'm not left with my only-too-often "iffy" problem trying to decide one way or the other.

Thank you Becky!
I'm very curious about this game because in Italy Dante is one of the most important poet, I still remember his Divine Comedy because we had to learn it by heart, so I really want to see the game now!

You learned it by heart? I thought it was an accomplishment just to read it!

Kudos to the Italians! bravo

Thanks Becky, that was such an interesting review! bravo I still haven't progressed with Les Miserables too much yet but I think I will be getting this one anyway as I am certain that at some time I will be in the mood for a classical fest! lol

Chrissie -- if you purchased Les Miserables, then you don't have to pay any more for The Divine Comedy -- your original purchase applies to Les Miserables, Divine Comedy and the next game (Genesis of the Gods).

So go download Divine Comedy already. lol This download will actually reinstall Les Miserables, so maybe it's good you didn't progress too far in.

You may find Divine Comedy easier to do a little bit at a time than Les Miserables -- you are going from level to level after all. You can do a level, save, then come back for the next level the next day.

You may be interested to know that no less than Bernard Shaw said that "...Dante's Divine Comedy, Milton's Paradise Lost, and [some work I can't recall] are the three great unfinished works of world literature because no one who started them has ever finished them". lol

I remember seeing a statue of Dante in Florence, holding his book. I asked the guide where his tomb was and was told that it wasn't in Florence (by the way, in Italy Florence = Firenze) but rather in Ravenna. Perhaps Carla can enlighten us as to why.

Can I substitute Moby Dick for the one you can't recall? lol

I'm curious as to what someone who has "lived and breathed" and even memorized Dante would think of this game. Do you find the modern tweaks in it intriguing or should the game have stuck even closer to the original text?

Thanks Becky, I'd forgotten about that! happydance I still have Les Miserables installed so presumably it will just overwrite it? When I get around to it maybe I should start with Divine Comedy if it's a little easier to do a bit at a time & go back to Les Miserables later. smile

Chrissie -- I'm assuming it will overwrite the original Les Miserables game. I don't know for sure, because the computer that I played the original Les Mierables game on bit the dust, so I played The Divine Comedy on a different computer.

Nice, as a laptop user, I'm delighted thumbsup to see this information and that you used a laptop to play the game because many times I buy a game and the game could not play on my laptop due to integrated graphics mad.
