Today, Ninja Theory announced an initiative of another kind. One which relates to mental health research and care more than it does gaming. They call it Senua’s Scholarship, and have named it after the heroine in their stellar game, Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice.
Senua’s Scholarship is a Ninja Theory funded scholarship that will support the training of mental health tutors and their incredible work at CPFT NHS Recovery College East, one of the key mental health collaborators on Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice.
To celebrate this announcement, while also paying homage to World Mental Health Day, the developers have released this 25 minute feature called Senua’s Psychosis. It delves into the work that went into creating a believable version of psychosis within the game, and those who helped make it so.
Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice is a great budget title that is currently available on digital services. It will soon be coming to retail. Don’t sleep on it.
