I found - on line - a photo by Sean O'Boyle that appears to be an inspiration for parts of the game. http://www.oboylephoto.com/steel/beth_steel7.htm It is at the bottom of the page. Have a look and tell me what parts of the game it reminds you of.

Great find.  Those photos reminded me of something I read in an interview with JD called "The Great Machinations of Amanita Design".

“...there is probably a subconscious influence from many Czech animated movies and many Czech and Eastern European artists,” says Dvorsky, who claims that the dilapidated industrial buildings of his home country have been a huge influence on the studio’s visual style. “There are some locations in the Czech Republic that were very industrial. The country was hugely industrial in the Communist era, and now it’s abandoned it’s beautiful to see how nature has begun to reclaim that space. All the rotten houses and rusting machines – I really love this kind of stuff where you can see nature taking back the inventions of mankind”.

I thought I'd get more interest in this. Has anyone noticed that the spigot labels are in the same order as the solution for the bomb the Black Hat Brothers placed on the tower?

Also, the pipes and valves remind me somewhat of the water works puzzle below the fountain on the Mezzanine. Does anyone else see this?

The labels are almost in the same order. ;o) (The first two letters are switched.)

But yeah, that picture is remarkably Machinariumesque.
