Today, we are announcing Project: Mara, our new in-development experimental title that explores new ways of storytelling, and we’re excited to share the first details with you.

 

Project: Mara will be a real-world and grounded representation of mental terror. Based on real lived experience accounts and in-depth research, our aim 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.

 

Since joining Xbox Game Studios in 2018, we’ve been hard at work on our upcoming multiplayer brawler Bleeding Edge, our new recently-announced innovative R&D project, The Insight Project, and of course Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II. These projects will continue to drive our development goals for the next few years and will help shape Ninja Theory’s vision for our future.

I like how they mention the other "actual" games that Ninja Theory is working on so that people don't slap their forehead at all the PR fluff that they just spouted above.

 

This new thing sounds like some Hololens app that only 1%-ers will ever experience.

I like Ninja Theory. I hope this acquisition with MS works out. It is always good to hear about games in development. Even better when they get released.

This sounds like the NT team went really in-depth with mental health issues while designing Hellblade and wanted to explore those themes more. I'm all for that as long as it results in an interesting and engaging game/Narrative.
