When you are playing Uncharted and under heavy fire the colour drains out of the screen indicating that Nathan Drake is running out of health, right? Wrong. Nathan Drake never takes an bullet, or indeed an arrow to the knee, all the bullets are missing him until the final, fatal shot.
The colour draining from the screen actually shows Nathan’s luck ebbing away rather than his health, so once his luck is gone he can die. This information was revealed by Naughty Dog developer Jonathan Cooper in a tweet.
Former Naughty Dogger Amy Hennig has confirmed the revelation tweeting that “The original intention [was] to stay more aligned with the spirit and tone of the films we were homaging.”
