We certainly haven’t seen the last of The Last Of Us. There may not be any actual games in development beyond the eighteenth unnecessary remaster of Part 1, but the story is certainly having its own life in other media. There’s an HBO TV series adaption coming in two months, and now the story of Joel and Ellie will be told in tabletop form when The Last of Us: Escape the Dark is released.
Coming from board game company Themeborne, The Last of Us: Escape the Dark is a game for one to five players that sees participants controlling Ellie, Joel, Tess, Bill, Tommy or Marlene as they navigate a harsh post-apocalyptic world filled with fungus-infested zombies. Your goal is simply to reach a safe area, but with interchangeable chapter cards telling the story, the dangers won’t be in the same areas twice. The game is part of Theneborne’s Escape the Dark series.
When can you get it? We don’t exactly know yet. There are certain details regarding The Last of Us: Escape the Dark that won’t be revealed until its Kickstarter campaign launches on November 8. We’ll just have to bookmark the page and wait to learn more.
