Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice is a game primarily about mental health, and this trailer shows how it aims to depict the struggles of its lead character. In it, we see the heroine plagued by voices, and about to do battle with the demon in her mind. It’s really well done, actually – enhanced, of course, by some good acting and amazing motion capture.
Despite its detractors, Ninja Theory’s always been an adventurous developer, and with this “AAA indie” it’s endeavouring to embark on path that few have taken before it. We’re really hopeful it can marry traditional character action with a storyline that will change players’ perception of real-world mental health issues.
