      Crytek cancelled a game that looked similar to Naughty Dog’s The Last Of Us

      From what we know so far, Crytek’s cancelled game was referred to as Project Jelena. Jelena is actually the girl that has appeared in various tech demos for CryEngine 3. In addition, the Forest map that was featured in one of CryEngine 3′s SDK was actually an early level from Project Jelena. After all, Cevat admitted – back in 2009 – that the Forest map was part of a cancelled prototype project.

      Not only that, but Maciej Kuciara had previously posted on his website some concept arts from Project Jelena. These concept arts were under the ‘Cancelled Crytek Game’ category and as we can see, two main characters - a man and a girl - would be working together. Our guess is that the player would control the male character and would have to protect and escort the girl to safety. In one particular concept art, we can see the main characters hiding from a bunch of people (suggesting that the game would feature survival elements), while on another we can see a destroyed car with two characters searching for survivors.

      It’s pretty obvious that there are similarities to Naughty Dog’s The Last Of Us (especially when looking at the following concept arts).

      Funny thing is that Maciej Kuciara joined Naughty Dogs after his partnership with Crytek. We don’t know whether Kuciara shared his thoughts on Crytek’s cancelled game with Naughty Dog or not, however it seems peculiar that both of these games – that had Kuciara involved – look so similar.
      This debacle aside am i to believe that any future Game that features a Man and a Women as the main Protagonists will be considered a TLOU Rip Off?

      lol pretty much, as far as the Sony Defence Force is concerned. And these concept arts were revealed a long time ago on the Crydev forums I believe. Not exactly new.

      Naughty Dog has a thing for 'setting standards' you know.

      He left Crytek after finishing work on Crysis 2 (some time during the development of this cancelled game). Work on The Last of Us began after Uncharted 2's release, back in 2009. Hence, the interesting part isn't all that interesting, when you consider that he isn't the only person responsible for crafting the artistic look of TLOU.

      And how long ago is 'a long time ago' in your book? In any case, I don't recall it being discussed on these forums before.

      A Game cancelled in 2009 being compared to a Game yet to be released after 3 Years with only common factor being a Guy who worked in Both Studios

      Didn't ND start TLOU after finishing UC2? This would have been yet another PC game with ND game ripoff written all over it then. This cancellation saved the PC fans a lot of trouble for making up weird excuses.

      The concept art itself dates back to 2008. That should give you an idea.
