Demonic Digg.com Source Code Dante’s Inferno Marketing Ploy
If you’ve recently been told to check out the page source code at Digg.com, you may have seen a disturbing image. Rest easy, Digg itself is not inherently evil with a demon guardian protecting their source; this is yet another marketing ploy for Dante’s Inferno.
This isn’t the first marketing scheme for Dante’s Inferno that has captured attention. Back in November a website appeared for a devotional game titled “Mass: We Pray.” Attempts to order the game turned sour as the website deemed you a heretic and plays a trailer for Dante’s Inferno.
If you’d like to see the Digg source code yourself go to www.digg.com, right click on the page and select “View Page Source” in Firefox, “View Source” in Internet Explorer.
Dante’s Inferno is a singleplayer (for now), third-person action/adventure game based loosely on the poem, Inferno, the first part in Dante Alighieri’s The Divine Comedy. Gameplay has been likened to that of God of War. Players play as protaganist Dante as he navigates through the Nine Circles of Hell to rescue his beloved. It is already expected to gain co-operative play in promised DLC “The Trials of St. Lucia”. The game will be available on PS3, PSP, and Xbox 360 on February 9, 2010
