Did You Know?
The 'Ish' subplot discovered through a multitude of notes in 'The Suburbs' chapter of the game is inspired by George R. Stewart's 1949 novel, 'Earth Abides.' In it, Isherwood Williams, AKA Ish, returns to civilization after spending an extended time at his remote archaeological camp to find that almost all of humanity has been wiped out by a virus. He meets a light-skinned African American woman named Emma, and they decide to raise a family together and found a community. But, after the death of Ish's son, Joey, Ish gives up all hope of reestablishing a society that he fondly remembers before the virus outbreak. See more
