Artistic wise we have chosen Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap as the main influence, since we have given that cartoon touch which is very colorful and lively.
Holllow Knight for gameplay and mechanics – due to the fast and perfect response of the controls- and the platforming of Shantae and the Seven Sirens.
Lastly, Akita’s sense of humor is clearly influenced by the works of Akira Toriyama.
