Ninja Theory is a group of people that are behind the amazing game that is known as Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice. The story of the game is well received because of its story. It shows the mental health struggles and overcoming them. It was an amazing game that was loved by all for its storytelling, characters and it shows us how different are the lives of people that are suffering from mental illnesses. After, Hellblade the studio didn’t say anything about whether they are making a game or not.
But now, Ninja Theory recently revealed that its project and it will continue going down the same path but in a new and innovative way. This project they are working on is called The Insight Project. The UK studio is working with Paul Fletcher, who is a neuroscientist that worked on their previous game called Hellblade. Ninja Theory and Fletcher are finding new ways for which they find new therapy methods to help people with mental health struggles by using body sensors and more.
Ninja Theory’s Tameem Antoniades told CNET “If you can see what’s happening inside your mind, then you can remove yourself from the symptoms and view it in a new light.” The Insight Project is in the early stages right now and Antoniades want to create a polished, high-end game that can appeal to the mainstream and help people better understand the realities of how mental health affects people. According to the announcement, the company expects its project to take shape over the course of several years.
The game’s aim will be to help people recognize, respond to, and control their anxiety and fear. Furthermore, Antoniades said that eventually, he wants to make a compelling, high-end game, rather than something that feels like it should be played in a laboratory. He said, “If we can turn it into a mainstream game that people want to play, then it has the potential to reach an audience that goes well beyond that small section of the population that needs and seeks therapy.” If you want to read the full story you can visit CNET on The Insight Project and more.
