Bioshock's Ken Levine digs into some creative influences

Oct 20 // Liam Fisher

The Bioshock series is obviously an inspired one; the worlds of film, literature, and pop culture have left a very clear mark on Ken Levine and his creations. In this interview from Complex, Levine goes a bit deeper into some of those influences. 

Comic-Con, Jack Kirby, The Shining, and famous political trends all feed into the creation and expansion of this world and in many ways, it shows. The way Bioshock: Infinite seems to balance a vibrant airy world with the macabre themes already prevalent in the series has me really excited.
