Post Snatcher - Possibly inspired by / Reference
I've gathered / researched a shit-ton of material related to Snatcher, and for my Snatcher (remake) over the years...

I've found many things that could have been possible influences on Hideo Kojima during the creation of the game.
I've also dug up stuff to use for reference with my project, so I figured I'd share my findings etc. with all you die-hard Snatcher fans like myself! :mrgreen:


I'll kick things off with the possible inspirations for the design / look etc. of : Harry Benson

I captured the following images from the movie : Futureworld (1976)
In the movie Stuart Margolin (actor) plays a mechanic named Harry who works on robots...coincidence? lol!

*Maybe you guys want to see more stuff like this? Let me know! I have plenty more to share if there is interest?* :-k

And of course we know that Random looks almost exactly like Feyd Rautha from Dune.

Hey thanks guys! :mrgreen:

It takes me some time to put together each "find" I present, as it's all been in my head/memory for years without any notes etc.
I really should have compiled this stuff as I came across it...DOH! This thread is helping me do that now though lol!

Feel free to help me out with anything I miss, or you'd like to add etc., as well as post your own finds here. :mrgreen:

Years back I did a screen-shot playthrough of the MSX version. After you input a name (you can change your name in this version) the ID is "registered to alphaville". Nickdaring mention it could be a reference to a retro cyberpunk film from the 60's by the same name
