Re: Funny message on mountain compound (MUST READ!!!)

I'm not sure if I got it^^ Is it a word play like "Huge Ass Truckin' Lines". So the man is an idiot, a lazy fat trucker? Maybe it's the same guy who cause the accident you can read about on a green console. And now "he" appear in the "special thanks"-list for making easier infiltrating the Syndicate mountain complex by Konoko. Why I'm thinking that way? At least it seems to be a gag name.
What do you think Mukade?

"Hugh Jass" is a very common gag name as paradox pointed out. The Wikipedia page is quite complete. Note the Simpsons' Moe's Tavern episode.

In Oni, the "Hugh Jass Truckin' Lines" label can be seen on both doors of both armored trucks you see: interestingly, in the first and last chapters.

I'm not sure if the Hugh Jass credited in Special Thanks is a 100% gag name as it usually is (i.e. it doesn't correspond to a real-life person or group).
There is a rock band called Hugh Jass (http://www.hughjassrocks.net), and possibly other perfectly real people that chose to go by this gag name.
So maybe the credits and the marking on the trucks refer to someone or something real that more or less directly participated in Oni's development.

Another gag name in Oni is BGI. On the original Oni Central Forum, the developers admitted that it was just standing for Bad Guys International smile

Other easter eggs in Oni include more or less obvious references Myth and Marathon, "Bungie numbers" and names of Bungie employees (three on a poster, two others in terminals, maybe more).

Behold the power of that which is yet unborn! For the swirling images that flow forth from the Chrysalis are only a shadow of the sleeper's true power.

Hugh Jass is the codename for a part of the game's internals but also a reference to the person who coded it, Chris Hughes. wink
