Hidetaka Miyazaki, who created the game, had multiple sources of inspiration, such as "Choose Your Own Adventure" books. Seemingly and more prominently, he took a lot of inspiration from the manga-turned-anime series "Berserk."

"Berserk," noted for its heavy violence, focuses on its protagonist and orphan, Gus, who becomes a warrior leader of the Band of Hawk. This togetherness with his fellow warriors helps him learn the importance of the connection in contrast with his solitary life.
