Cross me, and you'll never return.
Play with me, and you'll never see the dawn.
Renew me, and I'll give you Hell.
Yet don't worry, for as much as you pursue me,
You'll never reach me.

Who am I?

I think the answer is

Horizon

Cross me, and you'll never return.

I think this refers to the horizon of a black hole, beyond from which you cannot return if you cross.

Play with me, and you'll never see the dawn.

I think this refers to Horizon Zero Dawn, which is a game you can play

Renew me, and I'll give you Hell.

Thanks to Stiv from the help in the comments, I think this refers to New Horizons which was a spacecraft whose primary mission was to perform a flyby study of the Pluto system, and Pluto was the ruler of the underworld in classical mythology.

Original Guess: I think this refers to There Is a Hell Believe Me I've Seen It. There Is a Heaven Let's Keep It a Secret. which is an album by Bring Me The Horizon

Yet don't worry, for as much as you pursue me,
You'll never reach me.

Even when you chase the horizon, it moves further away from you.

  • $\begingroup$ I like this, I think you're likely pretty much there +1 I just remain to be fully convinced about the 'Renew me' line - to me it's almost a combination of this (which fits the word) and this (which fits a horror context of Hell). Is there another film that might provide a suitable quote? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Stiv, yes, I think you're right, there must be a better fit. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ One thought - the first link I suggested above might show you ('give you') this... possibly? $\endgroup$

The place could be

The Heaven

Cross me, and you'll never return.

You are dead, you can't return to the Earth

Play with me, and you'll never see the dawn.

I guess that in Heaven it's always sunny. You probably don't even need to sleep.

Renew me, and I'll give you Hell.

It could be "renew me" as "replace me with something else"

Yet don't worry, for as much as you pursue me,
You'll never reach me.

I guess it's a sin to crave the Heaven. To deserve this terrible place, you have to be unselfishly good and kind.
