However, research shows the way of killing over the game has taken a toll on many developers. Mortal Kombat 11 developers said that due to the continuous exposure to violent and disturbing images they are having troubles in their day to day life.
One person of the team claims that he cannot look at his dog anymore because every time he does, it reminds him of all the internal organs of pets he has seen during the game development.
Another claims that his sleeping behavior has been disturbed due to the continuous violent dreams and sometimes, he has to stay awake to avoid these dreams.
Developers claims that there are times when the environment of the office becomes depressing. One MK 11 dev said you come to the office and see a guy watching a tutorial on how to hang oneself and another one is watching an animal being slaughtered.
