Behind the ScenesEdit

Dominion Line Cruises Advertisement
  • Icarus may be a reference to Project Icarus, the codename that was given by Irrational Games to BioShock Infinite before its name was officially revealed.
  • In Greek mythology, Icarus was the son of an inventor named Daedalus. In an attempt to escape Crete, Daedalus and Icarus used his father's winged contraption, made out of feathers and wax, that enabled them to fly away from Crete. During their escape, Daedalus warned Icarus that if they flew too close to the sun the wax would melt. Icarus completely ignored his father's warning and flew too close to the sun, melting the wax off his wings and he fell into the sea, where he drowned.
  • The poster was based off an advertisement for the Dominion Line with cruises from Liverpool to Canada.
