The Tesla Tower, the looming structure that most of the game takes place in, is loosely based on the original concept drawings for Stalin's Palace of Culture and Science
(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palace_of_Culture_and_Science).
only wildly extaggerated and given a electrical rod at the top of the statue instead of a giant statue.

i had no idea! that's awesome.

here are some more inspirations, the romantic art is kind of loose inspiration for a loose scandi-russian cultural grounding, the plant is Pollia condensata-the shiniest plant in the world, which served as inpiration for the bio-electric flowers (or power plants, as they're known in the office) that charge you in the game.

in addition there's some buildings from bergen that stem from pre-industrial times that influenced the look of the city in Teslagrad

old automatons were a source of inspiration for the mechanical theatre sequences.
