Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice is amazing unique and beautiful!

Senua’s Sacrifice is the new viking themed horror-ish adventure game from Ninja Theory. It’s described as an “indie tripple A game” by the developer. I didn’t even hear about  the game until recently and we bought it today and immediately fell in love with this beautiful unique experience!

I don’t want to spoil the game for you so I will stay in the basics. Senua is the protagonist of the game, she’s on a journey through the grim world of Hellheim filled with whispers, demons and  self reflection. Senua’s journey is very dangerous and each failure is fatal in an interesting way. The story unravels cryptically and beautifully as Senua goes through this shamanistic state of being. There is no tutorial so fighting and exploring is in the player’s hands from the beginning, but the game is made so that it is quite easy to get a hang of it.

Melina Juergens (Senua) and other actors perform splendidly. Their work truly amazed me! I cannot emphasize enough how important the soundscape is for this game, an using headphones is encouraged. This is the most interesting game for me this year I’m baffled at how beautifully it’s executed, and in such a reasonable budget! The game is very affordable (35€) and I wholeheartedly recommend buying it.

With love, your queen
