The Last Of Us inspired webseries "What Remains" debuts

As one of the most highly anticipated titles to come out this year, Naughty Dog's survival horror entry entitled "The Last Of Us" is a Playstation 3 exclusive and is finally seeing release for the console this June 14. Since its reveal last December 2011 at the Spike TV Video Game Awards, the game has gotten a lot of people interested and invested on the plot, which features two survivors trying to navigate a post-apocalyptic America that was ravaged by a fungal virus that killed millions and turned most into creatures known as "The Infected".

Inspired by the plot and dedicated to making a fanfilm based on the series, gaming filmmaking group Manifest Films have created a pretty good homage series that they call "What Remains", which is set in the same world and universe as "The Last Of Us". The pilot episode was just released, and introduces us to two characters that meet for the first time and find themselves in a situation that sees them having to work together and trust each other in order to survive.

Clocking in at 18 minutes, this is a pretty good fan film, straight from the official "What Remains" website. Much like zombie shows like The Walking Dead, this is pure survival horror at its finest. Watch and be warned... Not for the faint of heart.
