BAFTA YGD award-winning puzzle adventure game Fractured Minds has launched on multiple platforms to raise support for mental health awareness.

Emily Mitchell who won an award for the indie title Fractured Minds created the game that explores anxiety and mental illness. The journey is one of her own through severe anxiety she has suffered most of her life. Emily’s aim with Fractured Minds is to create a greater understanding of how people that suffer in similar ways can experience mental health issues. Players will embark on a journey through many atmospheric and thought-provoking chapters that each symbolise different aspects and challenges of mental health. 80% of proceeds will be split between Emily Mitchell and the mental health charity Safe In Our World. The game is now available on PlayStation 4, PC, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch for just £1.79, 1.99 Euros and $1.99. A quote from Emily features below:

“I created Fractured Minds to help those who suffer from anxiety and other mental health issues feel they’re not alone,” said Emily Mitchell. “The effects of illness can be invisible from the outside, yet debilitating to those affected, so it’s important to continue raising awareness and offering support. I am grateful for the support I’ve received and want to help others however I can.”

“Fractured Minds shows how great talent can develop incredible experiences that can change how we all feel and identify with mental health. It can create debate, empathy and allows us to walk in the shoes of others. Safe In Our World is honoured to be a beneficiary as we support Emily and her poignant project,” said Gina Jackson, Trustee for Safe In Our World. We are passionate about shedding light and destigmatizing mental health conditions while helping the game playing and development community come together in support of one another.”
