Original text too short.
The first The Last of US Now introduced Joel and Ellie, although it did not really offer many details about the history of these characters. This change in his sequel, where we were able to know that Miller was the first surname of Joel, while that of Ellie was never revealed. Up to now.
Neil Luckmann, co-owner of Naughty Dog and creator of the franchise, recently revealed what is the first surname of ELLIE and interestingly, it is a tribute to the history of gaming.
Via Twitter, Luckmann said the first surname of ELLIE is Williams, which pays tribute to Ken and Roberta Williams. Who are these characters? It is about anything else and nothing less than the founders of Sierra On-line, a video game study responsible for titles such as King's Quest or Mystery House, and whose influence remains valid to date in many productions Modern
In case you missed it, the designs that Joel and Ellie have long ago filtered for the THOU series that prepares HBO and here you can see how they look.
Editor's note: With the Last of Us series, its authors are expected to give both characters much more depth. After all, the show will adapt the events of the first video game but apparently, it will also show us sequences and scenes never seen before.
