in fact my inspiration source is DEAD ISLAND, for those that played the game they surely know it was a bright lush nice place with gorgeous scenery and yet any time you heard a screamer you'd shit your pants not knowing where the freaking zombies would attack from. point is it doesn't have to be dark to be scary.
I was just teasing you, but this actually surprises me. There are so many elements of LOST here, and especially with the winning condition being All temples + Volcano... that's almost the plot. Plus the military base, the antennas, etc.
Perhaps the creators of LOST were also inspired by the Dead Island game.
At any rate, I don't think any semblance to the show is a bad thing. Someone suggested a LOST map in the melting pot a while back and I thought it was a great idea and I like the look of this one on its own too.
