As quoted from the Steam store,

Fractured Minds is an immersive artistic short game, exploring anxiety and mental health issues. Embark on a journey through the human psyche and experience six atmospheric and thought-provoking chapters, each symbolizing a different aspect or challenge associated with mental health issues; from isolation to anxiety, with everyday situations being distorted beyond recognition.

Raw, emotive and earnest, Fractured Minds demonstrates that video games are capable of communicating vital messages in imaginative ways. It is a game that seeks to encourage empathy and champion support for the millions living with mental health issues.

But the most important thing,

80% of the proceeds will help fund Emily’s career as well as future initiatives from Safe In Our World.

Link: https://safeinourworld.org/

From what I've managed to find out, Safe in Our World is a rather newly-established (October 2019) mental health charity organization for the video games industry. Whether it is "legit" or not, you'll have to decide for yourself - the link's provided above and if you have questions, you can try writing in and asking them directly.


If you'd like to support the young dev, Emily - she's a BAFTA Young Game Designers Award winner too! - and the cause, feel free to drop by Steam and pick the game up: https://store.steampowered.com/app/688740/Fractured_Minds/

Personally, I'd like to pitch in with a GA: [Level 1+; runs for a week] Fractured Minds

Disclaimer: I'm not affiliated in any way to the game, the developer or the charity. Spotted the game while browsing, noticed her cause, and thought you all might be interested to know about this game.

Would you buy a game at full price just to support a good cause/charity?

If it's a cause/charity I want to support, yes, in a heartbeat 💓💓💓
No, money still doesn't grow on trees unfortunately. At a discount maybe... 💸💸💸
¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Thanks man

I think everyone knows someone who has suffered from mental illness at some point in their life. If it's legit, it's definitely a really nice thing they are doing. Thanks for making us aware.

And yes, indeed, but since the charity is still fairly new, I guess only time will tell.

I want to know why you add me to blacklist?
Any problem?

Well, since you asked, I usually add people into my blacklist for either one of these two reasons:

  1. They are really terrible people (Not usually because of their opinions, but because of the way they interact with others)
  2. They don't have basic manners

But you can check my record, I seldom chat at there. 1 year I I think got less than 30 msg at steamgift and I never scold anyone at here.
Never say any bad thing to anyone.
I think you had blacklist wrong people.
Nevermind if you want to keep me as blacklist.

I just simply curious why I can appeared in your blacklist.
So far I check my stat, total people that blacklist me is 17 while whitelist me is 5
Sep 2019 until now increase one only. Don't know when you add me in.
Really strange.

I mostly appear in bundle thread. So far I only complain 1 thing at here, I always say fanatical mystery bundle is gamble bundle only. No other complain at here.

I don't want any drama, especially not on a thread like this one, and honestly, I didn't really want to reply in the first place because I'm sure nothing good would come out of it. Should have just listened to my inner voice I guess.

Anyway, let's just say that I found out why I added you to the list and leave it at that.

Are you aware that asking why you are blacklisted, especially in such an imposing manner, is considered quite rude?

It's probably due to language barrier but IF you have to ask something like that (which you generally shouldn't) I would rather phrase it in a friendly, non-agressive manner like:

It's not a big deal if you'd rather not but would you mind telling me why you blacklisted me? I try to be friendly to everybody here so I'm just curios why.

not

You blacklisted me. WHY?????? I demand answers!

I not write as "You blacklisted me. WHY?????? I demand answers!"
I write as "I want to know why you add me to blacklist?
Any problem?"

That is not rude, that is just want to know reason because I never do any bad thing to anyone at here. I suspect he accidentally blacklist me that why I ask so that I can know or let him check whether got wrongly blacklist me or not.

I not even scold him or anything. Because at here I not very active so quite hard to find a reason to blacklist me. (you can check my history at here)

After he give the answer and insist that I either do any one of the reason he stated, I no longer want to argue with him. I can confirm he accidently blacklist me although he don't think so but nvm at least I know this blacklist is not done purposely to me.
That all only.
When ask something we should ask directly rather than turn here turn there because if turn too much, people may hard to get the main point.

What Sundance85 meant by:

You blacklisted me. WHY?????? I demand answers!

was that:

I want to know why you add me to blacklist?
Any problem?

is still a quite rude way to ask the question. Your first sentence is in form of a demand with a question mark at the end (from the grammatical point of view it is not a question, but an affirmative). The second sentence is a nominal sentence and sounds to me like a warning from some beefy guy on the street informing me I should be very cautious around him.

Like he said, it's most likely just a language barrier due to your numerous grammatical mistakes (there are literally dozens in your comment I'm replying to). Whenever you write a longer sentence, even if you do some mistakes, it's easier to figure out what exactly you wanted to say based on the context. In short phrases there's no context, which makes it very easy to misinterpret what you actually meant to say (and with what attitude).

I ask this because I can't find any thread or anything that I had talk to him before so there is no reason suddenly he blacklist me.
It is like u walking on the street then soneone jump out punch your face and I found out that you never meet this person before.
No reason and get punch like that.
That why I ask him so that maybe he can recall what happen that lead him to blacklist me, maybe he found out just accidentally blacklist me only then he can undo it back.

So far here got some people that quite strange. Blacklist people for nothing. eg. when I join a giftaways and say thanks to gifter, other people that join that gift away choose to blacklist me. Some only blacklist people when you win and he not win. Then when I do giftaway, I found out my blacklist stats will drop. Those that blacklist me when want to join my gift away, they will unblacklist back. Really funny.

No problem! The lack of exposure on the game and their cause is quite disheartening tbh, hence the existence of this thread :)
