Ninja Theory Announces New Game Experience on 'The Horrors of the Mind'5 posts and 1 image reply omitted. Click reply to view.
Ninja Theory's most recent success was in the form of Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice, a game that purported to take psychosis and PTSD and place them into a compelling fantasy context. It was controversial, to say the least, with some people thinking it was a little exploitative. Whether or not you agree with that, it's interesting and maybe a little troubling to see Ninja Theory double down on this new direction. As PC Gamer reports, the company is presently working on Project: Mara, an experimental game designed, based on research and interviews, to "recreate the horrors of the mind as accurately and realistically as possible".
That feels … a little odd. While I'm all here for representations of mental illness, "horrors of the mind" sounds less like a nuanced portrayal of someone's pain and more like, uh, a pitch for a psychological thriller on Netflix. I liked Hellblade, but I'm a bit wary here. To be fair, Ninja Theory is also working on a broader initiative, the Insight Project, aimed at using videogames to address mental health issues. If nothing else, it'll be interesting to see how the game is received.
