In Memorium: Bryan Davis (Resident of San Franciso)

#1 Posted by idiottoyman (14 posts) -

So, I don't know how many of you actually watched the credits, but at the very end it says "In Memorium: Kenny + Bryan Davis (resident of San Francisco) "

Thanks Iron Galaxy.

@idiottoyman: Is that some sort of reference to Ryan Davis or do they really mean Kenny and Bryan Davis? If so who are they?

I wonder if it was because of the hunkadunk...

(it's really not that surprising but cool of dave)

@i_stay_puft: I have to fully believe it's Ryan Davis. Considering Dave Lang's involvement and that seems like the type of thing he would do. If it's not, I will be very surprised.

@i_stay_puft: Kenny was actually the late brother of a kickstarter backer. The backer donated enough money to design a character and took the opportunity to immortalize his brother in the game.

The Bryan Davis bit however, I'm assuming is just a joke, which made me smile. Especially after having to go through S-Kill.

Good on ya, Dave.

That's some inside baseball, folks.

That sounds great. Always trust Dave Lang to inject some levity to something like this.

That's awesome. Good on the Lang-Zone! I miss the duder like many of you.

Thanks Dave and the Divekick team.

Mine just said Kenny. Maybe it's because I played it on the Vita?

This is pretty great.

@spookytapes: Weird, mine says both and I'm playing on Vita as well.

Did you download the patch? It might have been included in that.

Can anybody confirm this? I might purchase this game just because it has a memorium to Ryan in it.

That's amazing

#28 Posted by spookytapes (272 posts) -

@petiew: Ahhh, you know what, I think both times I beat the game it was before I had downloaded the patch. Makes sense. I'll give it a run through with a different character tonight.

I think it's funny that they did it through a goofy reference, but I kinda wish it just said Ryan Davis.

Either way, good on 'em.
