Go to Hell Social Gaming with Visceral Games

Dante’s Inferno Application Sends Friends, Family, Places and
Products to Hell with the Click of a Button

Visceral Games, an Electronic Arts studio announced
‘Go to Hell’, an all-new social application inspired by the upcoming
game, Dante’s Inferno™. This application takes the poem’s
canonized nine circles of hell, and brings them into everyday life. With
the click of a button, anyone can send a friend foe, place, product or
brand to one of the nine circles of hell. Angry at your mom for
grounding you? Send her to ‘Treachery’. Mad at your ex- for cheating?
Send them to ‘Lust’. The free ‘Go to Hell’ app launches today on
Facebook® Platform, with consumers able to share data across other
online destinations including MySpace, iGoogle and Twitter. Dante’s
Inferno releases February 9 on Xbox 360® videogame and
entertainment system, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and
PSP®(PlayStation®Portable).

“This app is awesome! Not only will it be a blast to see who the world
sends to hell, but it’s also a great opportunity to take Dante’s notion
of the 9 circles of hell and make it current and relevant for people who
may not be familiar with the poem,” said executive producer Jonathan
Knight. “Let the damning begin.”

The ‘Go to Hell’ app calls on people to damn others to the
nine circles of hell: Limbo, Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Anger, Heresy,
Violence, Fraud or Treachery. From there, users can choose to punish or
absolve their victim… and see how the community reacts. The ‘Go to Hell’
app comes complete with a ‘Hell Browser’ that serves up a snapshot of
all the activity in hell on a day-to-day basis. In the browser, see who
takes top spot as the most deplored evil demon – be they a loudmouthed
celebrity, a slimy politician or a hated TV character.

Apple AppStore.
