The reason why none of the backstory was in the game itself?

Maybe the game design came first (let’s imagine the designers knew they wanted to use their 3d tech to make something demonic and visceral).

While that was under construction, they may have realised they needed a manual with an introduction. They many have anticipated there would be confused players asking a lot of who/what/why about the game. And maybe for PR reasons, they might have felt they needed a backstory so that the game didn’t seem as shamelessly vulgar as it might have.
