Preview: Combating Death and Depression in The Last of Us' Bleak New World - Push Square

Push Square: "We hope that you cope well in a crisis, because you’re going to need nerves of steel in order to navigate The Last of Us’ nightmarish vision of the future.

It’s too early to say what kind of impact The Last of Us will have on the industry, but we’re increasingly eager to find out. More than that, though, we want to know where this tale between two completely incompatible personalities leads. And honestly, judging by the short slice that we’ve been lucky enough to sample, you’re definitely going to want to join us for the journey."
