    When asked what inspired the creation of this world, Noronen offers that "Sami Timonen, who is [the] original father of the Iron Danger world, has described Iron Danger early on with phrase 'Lord of the Rings meets Transformers'." An ambitious combination of ideas to be sure, but one that becomes more apparent as Noronen continues. Kalevala is an allusion to the national epic of Finland, a compilation of epic poetry with deep roots in Finnish folklore and mythology, and he says that though the team brings an eclectic mix of inspirations, the common thread is this folklore with deep roots in the identity of the team. As Noronen explains, "there is connection with lots of myths of which we bravely steal, change, and rewrite for our own purposes. Most of the team is from Finland and the tales and the world they stem from are running very much in our veins." He also cites the nature of Finland as a big inspiration, "especially on the visual looks and overall atmosphere of the game."
