Naughty Dog’s next game is the post-apocalyptic PS3 exclusive The Last of Us. It follows Ellie and Joel, two people who are merely trying to survive in a world where humanity has been almost completely wiped out by a mutated form of the Cordyceps fungus. This fungus has adapted to infect humans, creating a freaky fungified creature that’s sort of like the mutant offspring of a mushroom and Left 4 Dead’s infected.
Developer Naughty Dog is adamant that this is not a horror game, but there’s no denying its strong horror influences, especially when it comes to these sexy fungus zombies. Head past the break for an uncomfortably close look at these things.
