Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice, developed by Ninja Theory, released in August of this year. It told the story of a woman named Senua as she struggled with Schizophrenia in an ancient, Norse-like setting. Over the few months since its release, it has garnered a great deal of attention for its honest and accurate portrayal of the suffering of mental illness and has received countless praise for how well the experience is handled.

Earlier today, Ninja Theory released a video on YouTube called the "Accolades Trailer". This trailer is simple but powerful in its message. The four-minute long video is a collection of screenshots that players took using the game's photo mode and submitted to the studio. Overlaying the photos are quotes that actual players sent to the staff who had a part of the game. Behind this heartfelt video was a song by VNV Nation.

The message was clear: they wanted to show that they acknowledge what everyone has told them, that they listened and understand. Hellblade had opened many people's eyes to the struggles of mental illness and helped those suffering from it to know they are not alone.

The video finished off saying that if you need help, visit hellbladehelp.info and find those who can do that. This was a noble thing to do, one deserving of praise.

If you have not played Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice, then I recommend it. It can be found on PC and PS4 for $30. You can watch the Accolades Trailer for yourself below:
