A Fold Apart is short and pricey, for sure, but the few hours it offers are an arresting blend of devious puzzling and heart-rending storytelling. Infinitely more so if you've been in a long-distance relationship.
A Fold Apart is a different puzzle game, and that’s a good thing. The concept is novel, and I like a story with some emotional pull, but it never moves beyond that. I can’t think of a puzzle that stood out over the others or even a moment in the story that was particularly poignant. It all comes together in a presentable package. Its creative folding-paper mechanic makes it worth opening, even if what’s inside won’t overly excite you.
A Fold Apart is the sort of game that sticks with you long after the credits roll. An enjoyable and distinct puzzle adventure, the gameplay offers something fun on its own but becomes even better in how it enhances the narrative. If you’ve ever been separated from someone important to you and dealt with the communication troubles that entails, this game is tailor-made for you. It’s a gorgeous and enjoyable piece of art that could only benefit from having been more fleshed out and expanded.
