The Last of Us opening gets an 8 bit demake

While the rest of us are quite content to only imagine what The Last Of Us would look like as an 8 bit arcade game, John Meehan decided that he would recreate the powerful opening scene as it would have looked in the 80s. And the result is, well, considerably less heart wrenching than Naughty Dog’s version. Maybe it's the chirps instead of speech that does it...

Meehan used repainted backgrounds from Double Dragon and the end scenes from Street Fighter 2 to bring the the scene to spritely life. See the pixelated end result below. Also. *spoilers*
