Naughty Dog has kicked off a new series of videos that will reveal several “behind-the-scenes” aspects for their upcoming survival-adventure game, The Last of Us. The first episode of the new development series, titled “Hush”, launched this past week and explains how the studio came up with the idea for (and the visual look of) the Infected.
The idea behind the infected humans in The Last of Us came from a slightly distributing episode of BBC Planet Earth that showed how the real-life cordyceps fungus is able to infect and kill entire ant colonies (this also happens to be the same video that was used in teasers before the game was announced). Naughty Dog used that BBC video as a jumping off point for the game’s Infected, and expanded the idea by asking “What if the fungus jumped to humans?”.
