Hell Diary follows the adventures of Eun (pronounced " 은 " ) through the land of "hell," the dream-world equivalent. It was made by Uboachan user Mishka.
Between V0.01 and V0.02 the graphics and many locations changed and a large part of the story was redone.
Currently, V0.03 is avaliable for download, showcasing the beginning of the game, it has been redone using RPG Maker VX Ace and a few areas have been added as well as a new Dossier system to hold important information.
- The game is currently being rebuilt in RPG Maker VX Ace, so no further updates will be given to the RPG Maker 2003 version.
The game is set in the same world as Amihailu in Dreamland, and 29 years prior to the events in that game. The game's titular Hell appears to be a vast plain with many unknown features (as the entire dimension is pitch black from a lack of natural light). The game's setting includes a tall tower in the centre of the heavily populated Hell City, and one of the city's many boroughs, the city and region are connected by a rapid transit system, which makes a brief appearance in the game.
There are no "effects" in Hell Diary, instead there are certain items that have various uses, as well as other characters that may join you along the way, companions have their own items to help you explore such as a Multitool.
As of V0.03, a new dossier system has been added, as you explore and talk to the various residents of Hell, Eun will discover information that she will add to her dossier that can be accessed through the menu, this will contain a summary of important information relevant to many of the happenings across Hell as well as information on important characters and investigations that Eun is doing.
In 2221, the young shaman Hana has disappeared from the shrine complex in Nampodong, a suburb of the Galwi capital city, the elder priestesses fear a politically-motivated kidnapping, but their investigation turns up something far more sinister. Hana may have disappeared into Hell, and the only hope they have of finding her again is her old friend and former acolyte Eun Utai.
As she enters Hell for the first time, Eun finds that she is not the only one investigating Hana's disappearance, the Hell Investigative Bureau, run by a powerful clan of ancient demons, is working hard to stop a revolt of their own while preventing Hana from sparking an interdimensional and international incident, Eun teams up with the HIB to figure out why humans are suddenly being pulled into Hell, agreeing to share information as they search for the cause.
