The lights are on
Yesterday, we shared with you the fifth developer diary for The Last of Us. Today brings two new items for Naughty Dog's emotional and thought provoking title. The final developer diary is now available (containing spoilers, be warned) and you can now own museum-grade pieces of visual art based on the game.
The final video focuses on the visuals of the abandoned world following the outbreak. This fits nicely with the selection of giclees (fine art, high quality digital prints) that are on offer from Cook and Becker.
The prints include a variety of pieces of concept art that include Joel and Ellie, along with some that explore the locations through which they travel. Much of the featured work is the artistry of John Sweeney, a concept artist at Naughty Dog. You can see the full gallery of prints on Cook and Becker's website, with even more images from the game set against Gustavo Santaolalla's mournful soundtrack below.
Our TakeI'm extremely pleased to see that my favorite scene from The Last of Us is featured in one of the selected giclees. The prints include some of the lighter moments of Joel and Ellie's travels, along with some of the more sorrowful. If you are a collector of game-related art and are interested in adding a high-quality piece, there are some fantastic ones to choose from in this group.
