Kotaku has collected the testimony of an employee (or former employee, the situation is not entirely clear) of NetherRealm that has dealt with animations and cinematic sequences of the new Mortal Kombat 11.
Mortal Kombat 11 is one of the most violent and brutal games of recent years and this seems to have also had an impact on the mental health of some NetherRealm employees. To speak is an employee who has dealt with cinematic sequences and fatality animations, thus dealing with violent images all day.
The witness claims to have seen violent sequences for many hours a day and documented himself with photos, videos, and documentaries on murders and violence against people, as well as slaughtering animals, all to make sure that the scenes he recreated were the most realistic possible.
“I started to have particularly violent dreams and that’s why I purposely started to not sleep anymore, just to avoid dreaming of raw and brutal scenes “. A solution not too bright, which led him to suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), a condition witnessed by a medical certificate from his psychiatrist.
At the moment it is not clear, we reiterate, if the employee in question is still in the team or if he has abandoned the study, NetherRealm and WB Games have not yet commented on the news.
