Though Hellblade's permadeath may be a divisive addition to the game, critics have noted that it skillfully complements the game's exploration of its protagonist's mental illness; Senua suffers from both visual and auditory hallucinations, causing her to grow increasingly paranoid as the game progresses. No matter how close you are to the end of the game, failure will be rewarded with a trip back to the beginning of the game as your save file gets deleted. I don't have footage of my experience with rot other than the image above from way after my seven deaths and, once I completed the game, the only option at the start menu is to start anew again. According to PCGamesN, if you keep dying, the game will erase your save file and send you right back to the start.

Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice launched in the early hours of this morning and an issue has popped up not related to the game's death mechanic. Each time you die, her curse mark spreads.

The game does warn you that this will happen immediately after Senua is infected, and from all reports, it takes several deaths for the rot to reach Senua's head.

BBC presenter gives hilariously lacklustre report on surfing dogs
Dogs were matched according to their weight, and there were categories for solo and tandem surfing - human/dog, and dog/dog. These humans just couldn't resist getting in on the fun! Cherie's low center of gravity might have worked to her advantage.

Many games have permadeath features, but they're mostly indie rogue-likes and not something of this calibre, and it's not something you often see in an action game.

Part of developer Ninja Theory's goal is to have players experience what it's like to be Senua, a Celtic warrior with psychosis who believes she is traveling into the Viking underworld of Hel to find the soul of her dead lover.

Depending on the game, the freedom to practice a section of a game over and over until you flawless it can actually be to the detriment of the narrative.
