October 10th is World Mental Health Day. In honor of that, the critical and commercial hit Hellblade: Sensua’s Sacrifice, itself an exploration of mental illness, is donating all of its sales from today to Rethink, a UK-based charity for Mental Health issues. Read Robert’s review for a reason to buy one of this year’s best. There’s a new trailer out too, to promote the game and the initiative:
From the Destructoid article:
Alongside today’s charity drive, Ninja Theory has released a new trailer for the game, featuring fans in-game photographs and sharing stories about their own personal struggle. I am no stranger to the draining, sometimes crippling, effects of mental illness. I sincerely hope that any members of our fantastic community who are affected by these issues, be it they themselves, or their loved ones, can find comfort, support and relief through friends, family, colleagues, forums and healthcare professionals. You are not alone in this, nor do you have to be. I promise you.
Hellblade: Sensua’s Sacrifice is available on PC and PS4, all proceeds will be donated from sales made for the duration of Tuesday, October 10.
