The Literary References Of Dishonored

Dishonored has been continually described as a mixture of different famous tales and artistic directions. From everything like its art style to setting, plot structure to mechanics, a lot of names have been brought up. Usually in an “X meets Y” manner like Biohshock meets Thief. Among these are usually the names of famous authors such as H.G. Wells and Michael Moorcock. Most influences brought up are usually relating to the overall setting but there are a few direct literary shout outs within the title which seem have gone very much unnoticed. Hidden in the lore which directly refer to or mirror classic science fiction tales both well-known or otherwise. (Dishonored, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)
