Naughty Dog, developer of PlayStation exclusive franchises like Uncharted and Jak and Daxter, are the folks working on the recently unveiled The Last of Us.
After the viral marketing leading up to the announcement was done, Naughty Dog and Sony put out the well received first reveal trailer.
At the top of this post is a behind-the-scenes style video of how the trailer was captured, shot-by-shot. Naughty Dog uses their own unique formula of motion-capture when it comes to making their games, and that’s demonstrated quite well above. The result is a definitively Naughty Dog look and feel, as some have already pointed out that The Last of Us clearly looks like a Naughty Dog title.
We don’t know too much about the direction of The Last of Us. Naughty Dog has emphasized that this title will be much more focused on telling an emotional story than being an entry in the survival horror genre. We expect Naughty Dog to strive for their own standard of narrative delivery and character portrayal. If they achieve it, this game could be wonderful.
As more comes for The Last of Us, we’ll have it for you.
