For all its flaws, Hell­blade is un­doubt­edly well-re­searched – some­thing that was made clear dur­ing the game’s very pub­lic de­vel­op­ment process, which has been con­densed in an ac­com­pa­ny­ing ‘mak­ing of’ fea­ture. Edited by Ninja The­ory video editor Melina Juer­gens – yes, Senua her­self – it’s a deep dive into the process of mak­ing the fi­nal prod­uct. The his­tor­i­cal con­text of the game is fas­ci­nat­ing, as is the sci­ence be­hind Senua’s psy­chosis and how it is im­ple­mented in-game. In­sight into the tech­nol­ogy pow­er­ing it all, too, is worth a watch. There’s no way to fast­for­ward or rewind the fea­ture, and it comes with a spoiler warn­ing, so is def­i­nitely best viewed af­ter a playthrough.
