Story & Themes
The game's themes of father-daughter relationships are central to the story and modeled after the real relationship between Insomniac's Chief Creative Officer Brian Hastings and his own daughter. Like Hastings' daughter, Merryn is a brave, determined girl who is valued as a protagonist for her intelligence, creativity, and persistence instead of her appearance.
