A Fold Apart
Top Critic Average
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.
A Fold Apart is refreshing in its approach to puzzles and how it explores its themes, but it never pushes beyond that into something truly memorable or satisfying
A Fold Apart is the sort of game that sticks with you long after the credits roll.
Telling a touching tale of a couple in a long distance relationship, A Fold Apart is a puzzle game with a bit of a difference and a whole lot of heart.
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 is a short, touching puzzler with a timely message at its heart.
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.
Overall A Fold Apart is a job well done.
