His Dark Materials reference?

Post by kensu »

Does anyone else see an influence from Philip Pullman's trilogy on the game?
A quest called "The Severed Child" seemed a pretty obvious reference, but there is also the relationship between the Changing God and the First Castoff, which is very similar to the relationship between the The Authority and the angel who lead the revolt (whose name escapes me at the moment, but the equivalent of Lucifer).
There's also the Transdimensional Scalpel which works very similar to the way that the Subtle Knife works. You also come across a weird sort of compass in the Merad's vault which might be a reference to the Alethiometer.

Does anyone else think these were intentional references, or am I just reading too much into it?
