"James Silva, creator of The Dishwasher series, has stated that his influence in these games creation was his own work as a dishwasher which, he felt, did not garner as much respect as the work deserved. He has also pointed out that the legendary Bruce Lee was a dishwasher once as well. From there the idea was formed. That’s pretty much all of the influences I could find. While playing the game though I couldn’t help but notice a few mirrors to our own society." -Nathan from Leviathyn.com.
