The Last of Us dev diary shows ruin porn

Urban ruins are awfully popular nowadays, standing testament to the impermanence of humanity and the creative bankruptcy of people who own a camera and have watched The Wire. At least in The Last of Us the ruins we're gawping at come in the wake of a horrifying parasitic fungal outbreak. A new video dev diary from Naughty Dog delves into nature's reclamation of our cities after the apocalypse, with a look the developer calls "Wasteland Beautiful."

It's a nice look at the work process at Naughty Dog, from concept art to lighting with a hearty dose of collaboration and criticism. With lots of pretty in-game footage too.

The Last of Us comes to PlayStation 3 on June 14, preceded by a demo on May 31. Check our recent preview to see how it's shaping up (pretty dang nicely).
