All proceeds from Hellblade’s sales tomorrow will go to UK mental health charity Rethink. The donation coincides with World Mental Health Day, which this year is focussing on mental health in the workplace.
Coinciding with the announcement is a new accolades trailer. Unlike most – which feature quotes from gaming publications – this one highlights “the many touching messages received by Ninja Theory since the launch of the game in August.”
Ben Wilson reviewed Hellblade, scoring it a 9.5. He praised its ability to replicate the feelings of anxiety that someone with psychosis might feel, through its mechanics.
