Barely over a week out from the release of The Last of Us, Manifest film has released the first episode of a web series that is based on the Naughty Dog game.
What exactly is “What Remains?”
“What Remains is an epic live action series produced by Manifest Film. All content on this page is intended to serve as reference material for a complete overview of the work and content characters that has been created so far by MANIFEST FILM. This web series is not endorsed by or affiliated in any way with Naughty Dog or any Sony company. WHAT REMAINS is a unique piece of content chronicling the journey of three unlikely friends as they attempt to survive in a world 10 years after a new strain of fungus as all but wiped out the human race.
This series asks the question: “What does it mean to be human when humanity’s time has passed?”
Check out the first episode below:
I haven’t posted news on this site in awhile. Been really busy lately with the podcast and just life in general. However, I had to throw this up as it is the latest trailer for a game I have had my eye on for awhile. Naughty Dog’s follow up to their smash hit Uncharted series; The Last of Us
“The Last of Us is genre-defining experience blending survival and action elements to tell a character-driven story about a population decimated by a modern plague. Cities are abandoned and being reclaimed by nature. Remaining survivors are killing each other for food, weapons, and whatever they can find. Joel, a ruthless survivor, and Ellie, a young teenage girl who’s braver and wiser beyond her years, must work together to survive their journey across what remains of the United States.”
With the latest trailer comes the release date, which is May 7th 2013…still a ways out, but trust me, that day is circled on my Calendar for sure now!
If you frequent this site then you are no stranger to the anticipation level I have for Naughty Dog’s latest game The Last of Us, from the studio that brought us the Uncharted series:
The Last of Us is genre-defining experience blending survival and action elements to tell a character driven story about a population decimated by a modern plague. Cities are abandoned and being reclaimed by nature. Remaining survivors are killing each other for food, weapons and whatever they can find. Joel, a ruthless survivor, and Ellie, a young teenage girl who’s braver and wiser beyond her years, must work together to survive their journey across what remains of the United States.
Every time I see new footage of this game I want to get my hands on it early, even more. Unfortunately that isn’t likely to happen, so I will have to wait with everyone else for 2013!
Uncharted has to be one of my favorite new game franchises. The first one was released a bit under the radar, but eventually caught on, while Uncharted 2: Among Theives was my pick for GOTY. I haven’t had a chance to delve into the third installment just yet but reviews from reviewers/critics & fans alike have me feeling it will be another fun time. Now comes the news that Naughty Dog has a survival-horror game in the works titled “The Last of Us”
In fact there is a trailer for it just released at the Video Game awards last night. Check it, along with the official synopsis for the game, after the jump!
