All sales from Hellblade the awesome game created by Ninja Theory today October 10th will be donated to the UK mental health charity Rethink, to help raise money on World Mental Health Day, which focusses on raising awareness of mental health issues in the workplace.
Mental health is a key theme throughout the narrative of Hellblade with players adopting the role of Senua, a traumatised Celtic warrior struggling with psychosis. Check out the trailer below to learn more.
Eurogamer’s Johnny Chiodini explained in his review :
Hellblade is a superb exploration of mental illness told with poise and poignancy. A sensitive depiction of psychosis without making any grand pronouncements about the nature of mental health.
World Mental Health Day takes place on October 10th every year and provides an opportunity “for all stakeholders working on mental health issues to talk about their work, and what more needs to be done to make mental health care a reality for people worldwide”.
