Fractured Minds is a first-person puzzle adventure for PC and consoles. Emily Mitchell developed the entire game on her own when she was 17 to enter the BAFTA Young Game Designers competition -- and she won. The game has already sold tens of thousands of copies.
The hope is the game will help players better understand what people with mental health issues are going through, as well as to assure those people that they are not alone in how they feel.
