The truth is that to truly appreciate Fractured Minds and leave the game having been rewarded and touched by its content, it is imperative that you approach it in the knowledge that the actual gameplay and puzzling is entirely secondary to the experience and the message. Not that the puzzling is completely pointless, it’s just heavily weighted to the simplistic.
Fractured Minds on Xbox One is a brave and admirable attempt at using video games in an effort to reach out to people who have to struggle silently with mental health. Although it is primarily a personal reflection of the developer, the presentation of abstract and complicated feelings associated with anxiety, using visual cues and simple level design, is done very well and in a manner which others can relate to.
