So I just finished the game last night. While casually glancing through the credits I noticed Dave Lang under "Special Thanks". So what exactly did Dave do in this game (other than hangout in the Lang zone)?

Motion capture for the robot horse

The "Charge" Vigor works like a divekick. THINK ABOUT IT

Iron Galaxy worked on the PS3 port

The idea for tears came from The Lang Zone. Think about that!

Bioshock Infinite is just a giant ad for Divekick. THINK ABOUT IT.

#7 Edited by Morbid_Coffee (955 posts) -

So Bioshock Infinite is like the Soda Drinker Pro of Divekick?

My mind is blown.

Because he is fucking Dave Lang. Give the man his propers.

Special thanks could be anything. It's the same reason Jeff has a credit in Guitar Hero II

He mo-capped Elizabeth.

A better question would be:

Why isn't Dave Lang credited in every game?

Dave Lang has been sent back through time to destroy himself who is actually Ken Lavine through the power of Dive Kicking

Why wouldn't you credit Dave Lang

Not one serious answer so far... ha. I assume it has something to do with Iron Galaxy doing the PS3 port?

If that was the case, they would be credited proper. If it was related to the PS3 version, it was most likely just friendly help as colleagues in regards to making UE work well on the PS3.

The credits for Uncharted 2 have Infinity Ward and Bungie in their special thanks, but they certainly didn't work on the game. They do know a thing or two about online multiplayer though, so I'm sure some friendly discussions took place between them

@mildmolasses: I said something to do with, not because of it. I also believe Iron galaxy is mentioned itself. Dave Lang's thanks could be to do with his contribution specifically. We can't know for sure, but whatever got him a mention is probably related to the contact they had because of the port.

The game actually started as a project to digitally capture the Lang Zone.

If you clip through the Songbird model, you'll see Dave Lang's digitized head on a stick.

If you follow a specific route at the end of the game you end up in the Lang Zone™.

The mind-boggling story of Bioshock: Infinite could only be plausible in the Lang Zone.

The spoiler to Bioshock Infinite is that it all takes place in the Lang Zone.

They had to license the lang-zone as the basis for Elizabeth's powers.

I don't know whether they worked on Infinite directly but Iron Galaxy did port the Bioshock 2 dlc to PC and were involved in patching that game, according to their website.

Iron Galaxy did indeed get mentioned in the Special Thanks too, along with a bunch of other studies (Ubisoft Montreal is one I remember).
