A Moment, Fractured is a Hidden Realm Environment. It features multiple floating islands in a void, with sharp blue crystals embedded in them. As the player drops down, a path of glowing blue rocks will appear between each island, leading the player to the last area. The Obelisk can be found on top of the last island.

The player can interact with the Obelisk, being prompted if they want to obliterate themselves from existence, then being asked again if they are sure. Doing so the second time will end the run for all players, while also giving each 5 Lunar Coins.

Obliterating for the first time completes the True Respite challenge, which unlocks the character Mercenary, while obliterating with any Survivor on Monsoon completes their Mastery challenge, which unlocks that Survivor's skin.

If the player wants to continue the run, a portal will open up near the Obelisk (after interacting once) to the right side of the hill.

This stage can only be reached via the Celestial Portal, which spawns on every Third Stage after the first loop next to the Teleporter.

A Moment, Fractured also serves as a gateway to A Moment, Whole, an alternative ending Hidden Realm, accessed by interacting with the Obelisk while at least one player in the party holds the Beads of Fealty.pngBeads of FealtyBgLunar.pngBeads of Fealty.pngSeems to do nothing... but....

Celestial Portal[edit | edit source]

A Celestial portal on Scorched Acres

The Celestial Portal is a portal that teleports to A Moment, Fractured. To have one spawn, the player must have looped at least once and reached the 3rd stage. On this stage a Celestial orb will spawn. You can see this Celestial orb circling the teleporter. You must then complete the teleporter event, and the Celestial Portal will spawn.

Obelisk[edit | edit source]

Activated Obelisk and Celestial portal

The Obelisk is an Interactible found on the last floating island. It takes the shape of two gigantic, slab-shaped monoliths which extend upwards for around 30 meters where a circular cavity is present. When activated, this cavity is filled by a ball of brilliant blue light.

The player can interact with the Obelisk, being prompted if they want to obliterate themselves from existence, then being asked again if they are sure. Doing so the second time will end the run for all players, while also giving each 5 Lunar Coins.

If any player has a Beads of Fealty.pngBeads of FealtyBgLunar.pngBeads of Fealty.pngSeems to do nothing... but..., the run will not end; instead all players will be teleported to the Hidden Realm A Moment, Whole.

If the player wants to continue the run, a portal will spawn below and to the right of the Obelisk upon approaching it.

Obliterating for the first time will complete the True Respite challenge, which unlocks the character Mercenary, while obliterating with any Survivor on Monsoon completes their Mastery challenge, which unlocks that Survivor's skin.

The Environment Log can be found right underneath the starting platform. It will disappear 5 minutes after entering the level.

Secrets[edit | edit source]

Before jumping down on the platform you spawn on, turn left and walk up the angled planks. If you turn your gamma up you can see three Islands in the distance against the backdrop. Two of these islands contain literal hidden Easter Eggs.

Lore[edit | edit source]

My brother, it is done. Come! See! 

Look to the moon... the first beacon shines brightly on the other side! There was no gap in its sequence - it has traveled instantaneously. We can cross the dark sea without succumbing to its sickness if we simply do not travel through it at all - is it not a brilliant light of hope? 

Only your hands could have realized my design, brother. I feel truly now that there is no obstacle nor force we cannot overcome together - with my designs, and your constructions. While it pains me to see your heart still torn for the doomed, we are not among them. There is an entire cosmos for us. We can escape this planet. Our prison. If your heart truly yearns to save... then surely more of our kind awaits among the other worlds - trapped by the dark sea. 

And to them we can offer the gates. 

When next she visits our world I must ask her to take a gate with her. Perhaps dozens! You should be celebrating with me, brother!

... And yet I see your somber gaze will not lift. Please, take the gate. Step foot on another world. Reap the rewards of your toil. Prove to the universe you are free! I cannot bear to see you in such a pitiable mood on such a joyous occasion.

...

If you insist, brother, I will go first. Forget about those creatures - and do not dawdle. I want to see joy on your face.
