Fractured Minds Launches to Raise Support for Mental Health AwarenessPosted: 14 Nov 2019
Fractured Minds comes from the imagination of 2017 BAFTA Young Games Designers award winner, Emily Mitchell, who at 17-years-old found solace through game development. Inspired by Emily’s personal journey through severe anxiety Fractured Minds seeks to create greater understanding and stand in solidarity with mental health sufferers around the world. Players will embark on a deeply personal and emotional journey through the human psyche. Exploring atmospheric and thought-provoking chapters, each symbolising a different aspect or challenge associated with mental health: from isolation to anxiety, with everyday situations becoming distorted beyond recognition.
The game can be glimpsed in the new launch trailer unveiled today:
we’re honoured to be receiving 40% of all proceeds, with another 40% being given directly to Emily to help fund her future career! Fractured Minds represents the best of what inspired talent can aspire to offer to the world, and Safe In Our World is humbled to be a beneficiary as we support Emily and her poignant project.
