Ninja Theory Announces the Experimental Project: MARA

An experiment in storytelling, Ninja Theory teases the ominous Project: MARA, which explores “real-world and grounded representation of mental terror”.

Ninja Theory, who is also reportedly hard at work on the multiplayer brawler Bleeding Edge as well as Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II, has also apparently been finding the time to delve into experimental new methods of interactive storytelling and horror. Project: MARA was just announced today, the product of extensive and in-depth research in order to “recreate the horrors of the mind as accurately and realistically as possible”.

The studio just dropped a short teaser trailer for the project, and fair play to them, it is extremely unsettling. And not in your usual spooky horror-trailer way either; it’s a more subtley disconcerting, claustrophobic, hard-to-put your finger on kind of scary.

Check out the new teaser below – I hope you like the sound of heavy breathing! By the end I couldn’t tell if it was still coming from the video or my own mouth.

"Cynical", "sarcastic" and "irritable" are just some of the words that have been used to describe Diggy B, the other words usually being four letters long and incredibly rude. He can normally be found with a controller in his hands and strives to provide acerbic rants on all things gaming, from Gears of War to Candy Crush.
