A puzzle game that explores the emotional rollercoaster of a long-distance relationship — in a world of folding paper. After career choices force them along separate paths, a Teacher and Architect vow to make their long-distance relationship work at any cost. Choose the gender of both characters and experience both sides of their story as the couple navigate the complexities of (mis)communication and the emotional ups and downs that physical separation brings. By flipping, folding and unfolding the paper puzzles in their handcrafted worlds, you can help the couple overcome the emotional barriers of their relationship and reunite.
With each puzzle solved, you help Alex and Sam navigate their long-distance relationship and share the experience of living apart from someone you love.
The emotion in the story combines with your choices of wording in their conversation and speech boxes that indicate both emotion as well as words. This, combined with the picture book feel make it a great game to get children engaged with reading.

A Fold Apart
Does not offer in-game purchases, 'loot boxes' or 'battle/season passes'.
The shortcut for resetting a puzzle in the middle of play asks you to hold a button but this can be achieved without holding a button via the pause menu. The only other thing that asks for a hold is skipping cutscenes but that is optional. You need to hold the sticks in a direction to walk on the console and PC versions. Mobile has tap-to-walk controls.
