TGL Interview: Naughty Dog’s Neil Druckmann talks The Last of Us

by Shane Willoughby - on Aug 16th 2012 at 4:50 pm (IST). This post has No Comments

The Last of Us and its brutal post apocalyptic cordyceps consumed landscape, represents one of 2013′s most anticipated gaming experiences, not least because this isn’t your average survival action adventure game; it’s a Naughty Dog survival action adventure game. Like no other game creator this generation, Naughty Dog has pushed the collective creative envelope of game making; crafting unique and incomparable entertainment experiences that tick every conceivable box – be it visuals, storyline, gameplay or characterisation. It’s somewhat fitting that their company logo is embezzled with that of a paw print, as Naughty Dog have, and continue to, leave their iconic print and their acclaimed creative stamp on every generation of PlayStation to date.
