Here’s the First Dev Diary for Ninja Theory’s Hellblade


Indie studio Ninja Theory has released their first developer diary for their next project, Hellblade. The video titled, “The Announcement” focuses on the development of the teaser trailer which debuted two weeks ago at Gamescom 2014.

It is a very impressive to learn that Ninja Theory had very little resources at the beginning stages; with no designers, animators and only one but very busy programmer. They had to create the trailer around the art team at the time, which featured “a concept artist, an environment artist, character artist and an art director.

The main focus of the teaser was to introduce the main character Senua while also providing hints of some of the themes surrounding her story. Tameem Antoniades, co-founder and chief creative director for Ninja Theory states “When everyone in the room is shouting, jumping, screaming and shooting. The one way to stand out is to, just stand still.” Personally I felt the game most definitely stood out amongst the crowd at Gamescom.

You can check out the videos below to learn even more about their process, as well as check out some concept art for the teaser.
