Red and The Deadly Sins Is a Metroidvania Based on ‘The Divine Comedy’

101XP is proud to publish the debut project of Chinese studio Diantong – Red and The Deadly Sins on PC via Steam. The team was inspired by Dante Alighieri’s Divine Comedy, and deep philosophical concepts – thus Red and The Deadly Sins was created. The game is a classic Metroidvania, where players delve to find secrets, platform and do battle with their sword or spear against enemies. Players will face off with personifications of the deadly sins and build up enough power to collect 12 memory fragments, for each of the seven ancient ghosts. The goal is to find out the truth behind these ghosts.

The protagonist of the game is called Ruby, and he is a regular fighter serving the Soul Cleansing Committee. His task is to free souls that were doomed by negative emotions. The Committee believes that these souls could destroy the world if there are too many of them. To prevent this, the Committee hires many fighters just like Ruby. This game is an interpretation of The Divine Comedy, and everything – from Red’s mask to traps in secret rooms and even the final bosses, have some sort of existential subtext, or social commentary. Early Access will begin today and players will receive access to the first three bosses.
