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:
The USS Bonhomme Richard, which until 2012 was homeported in San Diego, is at the scene of an overturned South Korean ferry, standing by to help with rescue efforts. Media reports say at least five people have died in the disaster, and 295 are still missing.
