Some players may notice a similarity between one of the gods on the main loading screen and in the game. They may also notice a similar looking NPC in another game. Most images in gaming are created using real people as inspiration by graphics designers and artists.
The back story on that image is one based in real life. The NPC image was created in honor and tribute to one of our staff, AMZ Surreal who also worked for another game company under a different name in her role as head admin. She passed away in early 2015. I was contacted by two game companies about creating a usable NPC based on her real life photograph, I gave permission and also provided the photograph that was used. Some people did know my real life partner of 8 years, whom now, is immortalized in the game that she loved and for me, its a chance to keep her memory alive at AMZ Games and also in gaming which was a big part of our lives.
So please, before players rush to claim that we stole the image and it belongs to another game, take the time to think about what you are trying to accomplish.
