Ninja Theory’s latest game Hellblade Senua’s Sacrifice was a rather interesting experiment in AA game development. The game offered visuals and presentation that is mostly seen in a large scale production but it was made on a relatively small budget. The actual game itself also ended up being a great experience which shows the capability of Ninja Theory by creating stellar visuals on a small scale budget as an indie production self published game.
Hellblade Senua’s Sacrifice deals with mental health issues and this is a topic that has been greatly raised by Ninja Theory. They announced on October 10th that all the proceeds from the sale of Hellblade Senua’s Sacrifice will be donated to mental health charity Rethink Mental Illness, and today they have confirmed the amount of money that they raised for the charity.
According to Ninja Theory’s official PR, they managed to raise £60,798.80 (approx $80,000/€69,000) from the sales of Hellblade Senua’s Sacrifice on October 10th which was donated to the charity.
Ninja Theory’s Co-founder Tameem Antoniades said ‘We’re proud of our fans for showing their kindness towards others who, like our hero Senua, need our help and support to continue the good fight. Our donation to Rethink Mental Illness will impact many people’s lives in a meaningful way and help shed light on their darkness. Our small gesture has made a big difference. Thank you.’
