Shattered Minds – Part One


I really, really wanted to finish this for Darktober, but life was a little crazy this week and this piece seemingly didn’t want to be written (this is the third rewrite), so take the first half and a very serious, very earnest promise that the rest of it will be out soon.

This is a companion piece to “Face of Evil”. You don’t have to read that to understand this (although I would be grateful if you did) but it does continue on in the same universe.

@sageofsarcasm see, I keep my promises.

Warnings: Something akin to a panic/anxiety attack, mentions of blood and torture

“Hello everybody, my name is Markiplier and welcome to ‘Shattered Minds’. So I know you guys have been asking for this one for a while, and I’m sorry it took so long for me to get to it, but here we are! Ready to have our pants spooked off us by the terrifying things inside our brains.”


Has anyone ever even heard of this game before?

“So for those of you who don’t know, this is an indie horror game about repressed memories that’s supposed to make you question what’s real and what’s-

“OOooooo I don’t like that sound. Getting those scares in early then, are we?”

I’ve been looking everywhere for this game and I can’t find it?? anyone else having any luck???

“‘Are you certain you know who you are?’ No, I’m not certain about anything. You mind filling me in oN WHAT WAS THAT. WHAT WAS THAT. What was wrong with that face?! Why didn’t it have any eyes?!”

oh fuck i think i shit my pants

“Okay, where are we now? Oh, this is, this is lovely. Weirdly familiar, but lovely. So what terrifying thing is going to-

“WHAT. WHAT. Excuse me? You guys saw that too, right? It said Mark. Right on screen it flashed ‘Mark’. I mean, I guess it’s a common enough name but still! I don’t like that!”

Is this some sort of skit or something? I don’t think this is a real game I can’t find anything about it or even the developers

“What was- Okay, I swore I thought someone was in the room with me. Not in the game, but like, the actual room. This game is getting to me, man! It’s getting to me!”

You okay, Mark? You seem more freaked out than usual. Maybe you need a break from horror games.


“I, ah, think we’re calling it here. I didn’t think this game would be this long, and I don’t know how much longer it’s going to be, but this seems like a good enough place to stop. So, yeah. This is honestly one of the most terrifying games I’ve played, ever, and I’ve played a lot of terrifying games. I’m…gonna go take a nap… Thank you everybody so much for watching and as always, I will see you in the next video. Bu-bye.”

How can you even think of sleeping after that??? I don’t think I’m going to be sleeping for the next week.

Does anybody know what’s going on? This video was days ago and there hasn’t been anything since. Did something happen?

Guys? Nobody’s heard a word from Mark since this video was uploaded. Not here, not Twitter or Instagram or Tumblr. Is this another hiatus?

Seriously, what the hell is going on?

Keep reading

I know it’s not finished, but I give you credit for getting started while Darktober’s still on.

I have a few works that are difficult to wrestle with too. But keep going, and you’ll get it. You’ve got a strong start here. 🙂
