If you’re looking for a deep and meaningful tale that covers an immensely personal tale of one couple’s long distance relationship then you are in the right place. Yep, A Fold Apart has finally released on Xbox One and PS4.
Available to purchase and download on Xbox One and PS4, A Fold Apart was first announced by the team at Lightning Rod Games way back in 2018, with a Spring 2019 launch looking on the cards. Here we are though in 2020 and finally it’s time for Xbox One and PS4 players to fall into a world of folding paper, a couple of months after Nintendo Switch, PC and iOS gamers had the same opportunity.
Priced at £16.74, A Fold Apart is an award winning puzzler in which you’ll get to fold paper, unravelling an emotional tale in the process. Delivering two sides to the one story, you’ll get to discover how an odd couple work their way through the emotional complexities of having a long-distance relationship, with you helping them come together via the medium of flipping, folding and unfolding.
Sold on the back of a relatable tale, you’ll discover more than 50 different paper folding puzzles included in A Fold Apart, and with a stunning 3D visual style to enjoy, and the ability to choose the couple that best represents you, there should be much to love about this quirky little puzzler.
“When we first started developing A Fold Apart in 2015, my goal was to tell a touching story about the romantic, sentimental, but fundamentally lonely feelings that my significant other and I experienced while living apart,” explains Lightning Rod Games Co-founder Mark Laframboise.
“We never would have imagined that we’d be releasing the game in an environment where nearly all of us around the world are physically separated from loved ones and experiencing that loneliness firsthand. Whether you are self-isolating, distance learning, telecommuting, or keeping in touch online, we are all in one form of long-distance relationship or another. Creating A Fold Apart was a way for me to navigate those difficult emotions and I hope that the game can help others find some hope and comfort (and, most importantly, fun!) in these challenging times as well.”
