I know that there is some homage to Platos account and related "Atlantean mythos"

But since this is not really based on these accounts, what did provide a source of inspiration for this plot line?

I was thinking it might be the Illiad. Also interesting that the name of the boat Perluma is from Plato I think.

A.E. is mildly inspired by Plato’s stories. The connection being that Atlantis has always been known as an underwater city. Aside from that, the rest of the game is all dreamed up by our team.

I've been wondering about other possible sources of inspiration.

After seeing the name "Miranda", I couldn't help wondering if The Tempest was an inspiration for the game. Will we get to see a character like Caliban?

Non, il n’y a pas d’inspiration de la Tempête de Shakepeare.

No, there is no inspiration from the Storm of Shakepeare.
