The game tells the story of Akuji, a Voodoo priest who is murdered by his brother on his wedding day and cursed to spend eternity in hell. After being contacted by his late wife's soul and told about his brother's actions, Akuji sets out to collect the souls and artifacts of his ancestors to allow him passage out of the underworld.

Shaft actor Richard Roundtree provided the voice for Akuji. Holds a Guinness World Record for being the earliest action-adventure video game to revolve around a black lead character.
