Session Name: Going to Hell - A Concept Design Overview of Dante's Inferno
Speaker(s): Ash Huang
Company Name(s): Electronic Arts
Track / Format: Visual Arts
Overview: Dante's Inferno is a 3rd person action game that takes its inspiration from the medieval poem of the same name. As part of the larger body of work written by the author, Dante Alighieri, the Inferno was the first of three poems that formed a treatise on the afterlife entitled The Divine Comedy. Rich in description and vivid in its imagination, this seminal piece of work served as an inspirational framework around which to create a game. The following session will discuss the journey and creative process that the concept team at Visceral Studios took to create this game.
