The director of game design, Egill Arnarsson comments on the development if the character stating, “The Gargan was actually supposed to be a fire giant and be on the Keepers of the Ancient’s team. Back then, it was called “Scorcher”. When we decided on faction colors and had fleshed out the game’s backstory a bit more, the Gargan switched sides. We couldn’t keep the unit red, so we changed it into an ice giant and adjusted its special ability accordingly.
The unit’s name comes from the word “Gargantuan” and back when it was a fire giant, the references we used was the chained giant from 300 and the fire giant form Age of Mythology.”
