Lightning Rod Games has been tinkering away on a new project A Fold Apart. While the “3D puzzle game about the emotional struggle of a long distance relationship set in a world of folding paper” is targeted for Switch, the developer is looking for some help from the community to help make the experience even better.
A campaign has opened on Fig where fans can support and pre-order A Fold Apart. Additional funding will “facilitate the development of additional paper folding mechanics, enhance the story through added animation and cutscenes, as well as enable the game to come to all major platforms at launch, including Nintendo Switch.”
You can find A Fold Apart here. We have more information and a trailer below.
A Fold Apart is an award-winning 3D puzzle game from Lightning Rod Games, that explores the emotional struggles of a long-distance relationship through a unique new mechanic — folding paper!

By folding the pieces of paper these characters inhabit, players are able to help the couple safely navigate around their relationship hurdles and find a way forward.
