How Reddit Users Coping With Psychosis Inspired Hellblade’s Creators

Ever found yourself twenty threads deep in some topic on Reddit that you didn’t even know you were interested in? Sure, it doesn’t seem like a productive habit, but as Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice’s creative director Tameem Antoniades explains in this Game Informer interview, inspiration can come from anywhere. It was one of those Reddit rabbit holes that led him to the game’s most interesting feature.

Here, he talks about the importance of sharing real experiences of psychosis and explains in new detail how the team at Ninja Theory worked with people impacted by the issues they depict.

Hellblade doesn’t have a release date, but it’s expected to arrive on Steam, GOG and PS4 sometime this year.
