The most obvious source of inspiration is from the epic poem, Inferno, by Dante Alighieri.
The 9 levels in the game correspond with the 9 Circles of Hell. The environments are similar to the poem like Limbo and the Cocytus. However, levels like Wrath take a complete 180 from the epic poem description, but still delivers the same messages. Now, how the game delivers these messages and ideas is from NES classic.
Legend of Zelda [NES]:
The game play is inspired by the Legend of Zelda on the NES.
The simple ideas of exploring and solving puzzles corresponds with this Zelda classic. However, what the game does differently is that Descend is focused around one item, the lantern. This one weapon can be used in many ways in different situations which will create unique puzzles and environments.
