The dismal look at the future of humanity is a subject that has been done to death by game developers, writers, artists and creative types from the world over. Our fascination with our inevitable demise fuels something very creative and moving within us.
The Last Of Us is a game put out by heavy weight developers Naughty Dog that are known for the Uncharted games and their snarky protagonist, Nathan Drake. The Last Of Us is set in post-apocalyptic America 20 years after a devastating outbreak desecrates the world that humans have worked so hard. 20 years on and life looks very different. The player takes control of rugged, manly man Joel and guides him through this world of chaos and violence with his precious cargo and side-kick, 14 year old Ellie.
