“When he meets this girl, she is his one chance at redemption. That kind of arc has always been intriguing.” – Neil Druckmann, the game’s creative director.
“We’re trying to move the medium of video games into an area elevated in the same manner of respect of film. We want to redefine what our medium is even called. ‘Video game’ is not an accurate name anymore. It is not necessarily a game with rules and a winner and a loser. It’s an experience.” – Naughty Dog co-president Christophe Balestra
