The Aztec god contained inside the egg Mandus finds in Mexico needs blood to break into our world. He tricks Mandus to kill all those people. First, Mandus needs money, that's why he makes pies. Seco...

If I'm not mistaking, the reference to Ozymandias was discussed even before the release of the game.
