Daria's Inferno Due This Fall
5:09 PM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story
Ever the producers of cross-platform multimedia, Simon and Schuster Interactive have announced that they will be releasing Daria's Inferno, a puzzle/adventure game based on the droll MTV cartoon with its deadpan voice talent. All of Daria's close friends and idiotic nemeses will be there, and you can be sure that the sardonic comments and excess verbiage will fly thick and fast. Here are details from the press release:
Simon & Schuster Interactive announced today the company has teamed with its sister Viacom unit MTV, to produce a CD-ROM game based on "Daria," the popular TV show seen Fridays at 10 PM on MTV. Scheduled to ship in October 2000, DARIA'S INFERNO, will take fans to the deepest depths of hell which looks a lot like Lawndale High.
About "Daria's Inferno" As if your nightmares weren't enough, now you can have Daria's! Our heroine falls asleep in history class and lands in hell. Not just any hell, mind you, but the hell which is also known as Daria's life.
Ms. Li, Lawndale High's tough-as-nails principal, reports a strange series of missing items including her cherished "Disciplinarian Award." This sets the stage for a series of challenging puzzles as Daria tries to make her way through five levels of the underworld. Your goal is to utilize those steely wits and the substantial time you have on your hands to help Daria find the missing items and wake up.
In this journey through Daria's netherworld you'll be meeting all the characters from "Daria" including vainglorious football players, misguided teachers, and supercilious fashion clubbers. You'll also hear more of Daria's hydrochloric acid wit, written and performed by the same fine people who do the show (not the usual frauds who ordinarily show up in nightmares).

Watch for this one later this Fall. We're just relieved it isn't Panty Raider 2: Beyond The Elastic.
