Here’s more from the press release: “Each week, users go to to find three new puzzles themed to the circles of hell as depicted in Dante’s Inferno. Finding clues hidden throughout Google products (Google Maps, Gmail, Google Search, Google Play, Google Docs, Google Cultural Institute and YouTube), and the world’s most popular social platforms, players will complete up to three puzzles each week and will have the opportunity to win weekly prizes, culminating in one grand prize – an Italian getaway with stops in Rome,Milan, Florence and Venice. As each new set of puzzles are unveiled week-to-week, the experience will become increasingly difficult to solve as the ‘Inferno Journey Through Hell’ progresses to its ultimate mind-bending final challenge.”

This interactive game was developed to promote the forthcoming Inferno film adaptation. The movie will hit theaters on October 28. Follow these links to watch the first teaser, the second teaserthe full-length trailerthe first international trailer, and the second international trailer.
