How many times does the press need to tell you the latest game is the best you’ve ever played? Even as reviewers, we appreciate you’ve probably got the memo by now. It’s so refreshing to see Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice take a different direction for its accolades trailer, then. This clip is filled with quotes pooled from letters and emails that Ninja Theory has received, and it’s set to screenshots taken from within the game – it’s pretty powerful stuff.
More importantly, the Cambridge-based developer will be donating all of the proceeds it makes from sales of the game today (10th October) to UK mental health charity Rethink. This is all timed to coincide with World Mental Health Day, which you can learn more about through the link. If you’ve got some spare cash, maybe consider picking up Hellblade tomorrow – it’s a brilliantly thought-provoking experience, and it’ll be for a good cause.
