The games whole theme and setting is a tribute to 80's and 90's action movies, such as Commando, Predator, Alien and the like. Some events in game are even direct references to scenes from those films.
the player is only allowed to shoot straight left, right up or down. Some enemies, like snipers, are allowed to shoot diagonally, however.
It is possible to find or purchase more than 300 distinct weapon pieces that can be mixed and matched at wilEaster Eggs
The radio conversations are straight from the Metal Gear series, more specifically Metal Gear Solid's "talking heads" Codec chatter.
King looks a lot like a gruffer, scruffier version of Metal Slug's Marco, down to the bandanna and backpack.
The Wooden Sword. "It's dangerous to go alone. You should take this."
The "Peashooter" reciever is Mega Man's arm cannon. It works on multiple levels: In the first three games (and Game Boy games) it's denoted in the Weapon Menu as the "P" weapon (or P-shooter, if you will), and the description itself is a dead giveaway (designed by Light Industries, made to fight for everlasting peace).
The "Bolt" (read: Colt) 45's description references Billy Dee Williams' commercials for Colt 45 beer: "Works every time".
One knife in the game is named Corvo. It’s decent, but nothing special.
Another knife is just called "Snake". It's described as being solid.
There’s also a pickaxe that is visually identical to one in Minecraft. It’s nearly the worst melee weapon available.
The Pheasant is quite similar to a full-grown bird from Tiny Wings.
The Violence Kings come from Robertson's animation Kings of Power: 4 Billion%.
The Horse pistol, which is essentially Emperor, complete with the description "perfect for a mercenary on a bizarre adventure."
