Ninja Theory has been about the chills and thrills with the high-end speculative, exploration piece Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, building on the mythos with the dirge of a trailer for Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II. However, if you thought this was the pinnacle of psycho-drama coming from the developer, you have another thing coming.
Just announced, Ninja Theory is working on another project in development entitled Mara, an effort which has been dubbed “grounded representation of mental terror”. Sounds indubitably promising.
Check out Ninja Theory’s press statement on the forthcoming project:
Project: Mara will be a real-world and grounded representation of mental terror. Based on real lived experience accounts and in-depth research, the goal is to recreate the horrors of the mind as accurately and realistically as possible. Project: Mara will be an experimental title and a showcase of what could become a new storytelling medium.
I think Ninja Theory has found its niche.
