Naraka: Bladepoint’s Newest Hero Lends His Prosthetic Arm To One-Handed Gamer
YouTuber Jesse receives a truly unique prosthetic inspired by Hadi Ismail and made by Hacksmith Industries!
Developer 24 Entertainment is excited to reveal a bionic arm created in collaboration with the engineers at Hacksmith Industries! Inspired by the one Naraka: Bladepoint’s newest hero Hadi Ismail wears in-game, the functional prosthetic was donated to one-handed Naraka player Jesse.
Watch their story:
Jesse is from the UK and was born without a left hand. That hasn’t stopped him from gaming and being excellent by challenging stereotypes and reducing stigma with his fun content. After the Naraka: Bladepoint development team spotted him play their game, they decided to reach out to Jesse and Hacksmith Industries about a collaboration. Since Hacksmith is based in the US, Jesse went to a hospital in the UK to get his arm 3D scanned, then shared that data with the American engineering team.
Watch Jesse’s side:
The outcome is an amazing combination of engineering and art that brings Hadi’s inclusive character design to life. To achieve this, Hacksmith based the arm around an R&D hand from San Diego engineering company Psyonic. Their prosthetic hand comes with an app that lets the user fine-tune its movements and configure crucial intricacies like grip type and strength. His colleague Logan then transformed this base into a one-of-a-kind bionic limb before Hacksmith flew to the UK to present it personally. Jesse’s reaction when trying the hand and learning that he’s allowed to keep it was very touching for everyone involved, including Naraka: Bladepoint’s development team:
“Seeing Jesse’s reaction and how much fun Hacksmith’s team had with this project makes us incredibly happy.”, says Ray Kuan, Lead Producer at 24 Entertainment. “The whole team here followed the project closely since the beginning and seeing our design come to life in such a way makes us all really proud. Jesse’s spirit and Hacksmith’s incredible work reflect Naraka’s motto “Unchained” perfectly!”
Naraka: Bladepoint is free to play and available now on PC, PlayStation®, Xbox® and mobile devices.
