Fractured Minds Comes To Xbox One

There was a very healthy mix of games featured during X019, with the lineup running the gamut from AAA releases to single-developer projects. It’s from the latter half of that spectrum that Fractured Minds hails from. This puzzle-adventure game was developed by one Emily Mitchell for the purposes of exploring mental health and dealing with her own struggles.

After receiving a great deal of encouragement from her sister, Mitchell eventually entered Fractured Minds into the BAFTA Young Game Designers competition despite her doubts about winning. The passion seen in the video above must be very evident in Fractured Minds though, because she wound up taking home the prize for her category.

Those curious to see gaming’s potential for exploring mental health issues can check out Fractured Minds right now on Xbox one via the Microsoft Store.
