Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice

Through trials requiring cunning, strategy and sheer tenacity the player will try not to fail… And fail anyway. Again and again and again. The story of the game expands on the very meaning of failure and pain, and through breaking the 4th wall and directly talking to the player, it teaches them how to accept loss, while commenting on why it is that humans are so desperate to seek such pain.
The game keeps the player hooked with each obstacle being just barely surmountable. Each milestone being achieved with their own strength. And at the end of it, maybe there is a hope for victory… Even if it’s not the kind of victory one would expect.
