What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“As a team who value the power of the statement and allusions, we hope, that our game will be the gamers-intellectuals’ cup of tea. However, since this is our debut project we left an opportunity to finalize the game with the Early Access launch.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“If the game suits you now, and we will have to finalize only what we originally intended to develop (it will take about 7-8 month). If the game must be changed, then we will need 12-14 month – due to our optimistic assessment.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“With your help we will make the game:
  • Smarter;
  • Deeper;
  • More acute social and authentic.

Also, we hope to add:
  • 4 new levels and 4 bosses;
  • More fighting mechanics;
  • More opportunities and systems of development;
  • More interesting characters;
  • More secrets.

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Now there are three of seven levels available with the full set of features: bosses and usual enemies, characters and everything necessary for the decent play. Also there's a Challenge room.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The cost of the full product may be a bit higher.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We would like to receive the community feedback through the Steam Hub. We believe in the player community potential. We want to use the time of the early access to get your offers how make the game better, moreover, we would like you to tell us what do you want to see in the final version. We hope that with your interest and help we will finalize the game Red and the Deadly sins and to make it awesome together.”

About This Game

Acute social subtext about life from the perspective of “Divine Comedy” – this is how the Red and the Deadly Sins is presented by indie-studio Diantong, that consists of two friends-co-founders. Under its uncomplicated design developers hide plenty of allusions about reality, and a journey of a faceless hero is telling another interpretation of Dante Alighieri’s masterpiece.

Explore the underworld, inhabited by evil souls and save them. It is an order of Soul Purging Committee, and that’s what Red will do - an ordinary soldier without a name, face nor past. But even a usual man can clear the world from the Sins if he has enough determination and faith.

Leave your hope anyone who downloads the game:
  • Minimalist design. Co-founders of Diantong believe the power of the statement is more important than vivid visual aspect;
  • To overcome the Sin is simple, but to understand it’s essence – that’s the trial for the real explorers. Search for the memory shards, in order to know the truth about ancient spirits. To understand what Diantong wanted to say;
  • Authentic soundtrack from an independent songwriter Lamark Kane;
  • One book is seen differently in various cultures. Inspired by “Divine Comedy”, Diantong blended its vision of Dante’s journey and Chinese philosophy of life (by all means). Developers have put existential and social subtext in everything, from the mask of Red and traps to bosses and game ending.
