Try one of Enter the Story’s low-budget but high-concept adaptations, which see classic literature transformed into pointand- click adventures. So far, the tomes to have been given the treatment are Dante’s ‘Inferno’ (pictured below) and ‘Les Misérables’, and more are scheduled for release by the end of the year.
