Hellblade dev, Ninja Theory, Turns Its Attention to Real World Metal Illness Tomorrow

If you’ve been looking for an excuse to buy a copy of Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, tomorrow you may have one of the best you could ask for. Tomorrow, October 10th, Hellblade Developer Ninja Theory will be donating ALL proceeds made to the UK mental health group Rethink.

In the game (which i have not player, for the sake of disclosure)  the protagonist Senua suffers from psychosis. This has draw both praise and criticism to the game for it’s depiction of mental illness, but overall there seems to be a consensus that Ninja Theory handled the topic with the respect it deserves.

Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice has an 80 or higher on both Metacritic and OpenCritic, and is widely considered to be one of the best games this year (which is saying a lot. 2017 has been a good year for games).
