  1. From the start, go northeast across the nukage to two rocks, which look like they lead to the west fence. There is a switch you can use behind the fence here. Doing so reveals a soul sphere at the exit, which is where the secret is. (sector 166)

Inspiration and development[edit]


  • The map is inspired by the Japanese underworld, hence the torii gates at the spawn point. The title is a reference to Orpheus, a Greek tragedy about a man who ventured into the underworld for his wife.
