I go once, squish grapes, eat to brush off pooped, then do stuff to get my energy to 0, but can't get back to hell. What am I doing wrong? I'm trying to work on the achievements for visiting hell.

Well, if you can't get into hell, obviously you aren't doing anything wrong. – GnomeSlice Oct 18 '11 at 16:55

It appears you can only go to hell once per game-day. You get the debuff Pooped when your energy is very low(5% of max energy) with a duration matching the time until the next game day, which is every four earth hours.

Usually 9am to 5pm. – robyaw Oct 18 '11 at 23:48

Get your energy down to low levels. Then, do one of the following:

  • Drink a beer for a energy debuff that takes 35 energy over time.
  • Do some No-No Powder, then wait until the rush and the crash wear off.
  • Idle at 0 energy. Eventually, you'll croak.

I did notice that, the one time I died, I got to 0 energy almost immediately after I came back and didn't die right away. Since you start with low energy after a death, my assumption was that there was a small forgiveness timer that gave you a chance to recover so that you didn't immediately end up back in Hell via performing one or two actions to get something that allowed you to recharge.

I think I'm really asking for the duration of the forgiveness timer. If we can find that, we've got an answer. – antony.trupe Oct 18 '11 at 18:58
@antony.trupe: I don't know for sure, but my guess is that it's tied to one of the debuffs you get when you die (Pooped or Super Pooped) and that you'd be able to die once you got rid of the debuff (by getting more energy or waiting for the next game day, respectively). – Shaun Oct 18 '11 at 19:15
I tried that, and am still unable to get back to hell. It seems you can only go once per day. – antony.trupe Oct 18 '11 at 23:02
