A Fold Apart needs funding to actually happen

For more then 10 years now I have been active in the gaming world, following the news and chatting with people who enjoy a good game as much as I do. And where the big gaming companies used to dominate the scene, we see more and more small developers appear. Some bringing games to Steam, some to mobile gaming, and even to consoles.

Seems to me as if small studios find a gap in the games that are on offer, and jump in. Not all initiatives make it, funding is a challenge of course. But that’s where platforms like Kickstarter and Fig come in. I’ve only supported one Kickstarter initiative before, when I pledged my support for My Time at Portia ( more info on the game here). The games isn’t in Switch yet, but I do expect it this year.

I found another game that I feel is worth supporting and I actually pledged my support. A Fold Apart is a 3D puzzle game about the emotional struggle of a long distance relationship set in a world of folding paper.

Inspired by origami and papercraft, you can fold and manipulate the paper world to navigate the struggles of a long distance relationship. What makes this game extra special is that it’s based on a true story about the developers long distance relationship.

The game will have 50 puzzles that you can play in any gender combination relationship you want. Finding our how to fold or flip the world that you see on your screen to bridge the gap between the lovers should be fun. I like it that it won’t be just about clever puzzles: cutscenes and narrative moments will show us the emotions of their long distance relationship story. Aside from that, the game is cute and colorful!

They intend to bring the game to PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, but they have to find funding for it of course. How this works on Fig is that your pledge will only be collected if the goal is met on July 20. There’s still a long way to go though: the goal is $45.000 and at the time I’m writing this, $8.614 has been collected.

Aside from being curious about the game it’s fun to follow the developers, see if they make it, and to expect the digital game on Switch by the time it has all worked out!

Here’s the trailer for the game, and if you want to take a look at the campaign, you’ll find it here


    1. Corina here from Lightning Rod Games – thank you SO MUCH for your support! We really believe in this game, and it feels great to know others do too 🙂

  1. What a lovely-looking title! And a novel idea, approach to a puzzle game. <3 It looks so sweet, and I truly hope it makes it! Ilove those with story, narrative elements.. I've never pledged to a game's development/kickstarter, either. But I think I shall! Will post here when I do (by the 20th).

We love to hear from you!
