A Fold Apart is a very brief puzzle game with some good and interesting ideas, but it ultimately falls short when trying to execute them.

It may not have the flashiest or most exhilarating gameplay, but A Fold Apart achieves almost everything it sets out to do, which is to truly put you in the shoes of someone in love — and someone in pain.

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.

There's one thing I am really torn up about with this game. On one hand, I want more puzzles. They were challenging but not so tough that I ever found myself frustrated or searching the internet for answers. That said, I don't think that I would have enjoyed dragging out the story. It was already such an emotional rollercoaster, and stretching it out further would dishonor the struggle of these two characters. A Fold Apart is a near-perfect indie game and one every person with a beating heart should experience.

A Fold Apart brings you into a personal and deep story. It's a story that invites you into a deep and meaningful relationship between two characters. It's a game that's real, and that's why I love it.

A Fold Apart is extremely sucessful in putting its message across, delivering a relatable and emotional insight into long-distance relationships. However there were certain aspects (mainly aesthetic) that could have been more polished.
