I Shall Remain video game

Marine Sgt. Jacob Way spent more than a year of his life creating a new video game called "I Shall Remain," according to the Marine Corps Times. The game pays homage to the Marine Corps in many different ways - which might sound surprising, considering the game takes place in a post-apocalyptic world filled with Zombies. But according to the game's trailer, the main character is a Marine:

It turns out that this main character,Capt. C.J. Hodges, is named in honor Cpl. Craig Hodges Jr. - a real Marine and friend of Sgt. Way - who died in 2010.

Way also modeled a lot of the main character's heroic traits after his former superior, Capt. Tyson Ackermann. Ackermann told the Marine Corps Times:

Way is a Tagalog linguist stationed at Marine Corps Base Hawaii, Kaneohe Bay. He spent more than $40,000 to create "I Shall Remain." You can watch a trailer for the game on YouTube:
