In a interview with Niche Gamer, the development team said that the game’s premise of being able to “meet the common people going through the pains of a cyberpunk dystopia” was inspired by one of the sequences in Ghost in the Shell, the bar scene in Blade Runner, and the decayed state of Venezuela (the country in which they are based) at the time. They also confirmed that the visual design was inspired by anime such as Bubblegum Crisis.

Minecraft
Attachment
The feature to feed parrots cookies to breed and tame was removed in a patch due to outcry from the Minecraft community. In real-life, chocolate cookies can kill birds if fed to them and people felt that children who played the game would try to copy this. The feature was changed prior to the release of patch 1.12.

Feeding cookies to parrots was also a subtle reference to the song "Polly" by the band Nirvana.

For Honor
As of March 2017, unlocking all of the in-game outfits, emotes and minor items would cost around $732. The cost for acquiring all of the items outraged the game's community prompting the game's director, Damien Kieken, to respond by stating "We never had an intention for you to unlock everything in the game. For us that doesn't really make any sense." He then compared the game to how in World of Warcraft and in any MOBA players would never try to unlock everything and just play one to three characters.
