As the whole western half of North America experiences record inferno heat, we imagine so many of you are holed-up inside your homes, enjoying the deepest, darkest corners of the internet. No, not that corner, come back over here to the good stuff!
In this week’s round-up, we have a bunch of gameplay videos and short films, including one made by industry professionals to honor The Last of Us in time for the HBO series of the same name that’s currently filming. Enjoy!

APART by Lukas Galle | Full Exclusive Post-Apocalyptic Short Film

Stay (Short Film) – Inspired by The Last of Us
Someone forwarded this short film to be a few days ago and I couldn’t wait to include it in this round-up.
