Lightning Rod Games has released a touching new teaser trailer for their award-winning upcoming title A Fold Apart. It really pulls at the ol’ heartstrings, that’s for sure.
Set to launch in June 2019 on Nintendo Switch and for Windows, A Fold Apart is about a couple experiencing the joys and sorrows of a long-distance relationship.
“A Fold Apart may be based on my own real life experience with a long-distance relationship,” explains Lightning Rod Games co-founder Mark Laframboise, ”but the feelings of being apart from a loved one are much more universal than that. One of our main goals for the story has been to make it accessible and relatable to anyone who plays it, including those who may not have experienced a long-distance relationship themselves.”
Using a unique paper folding game mechanic to guide the two characters together, A Fold Apart explores what it means to communicate (and miscommunicate) with those we love.
The game will be available for demos at PAX East this weekend in Boston. Look for the blue and orange booth (#23117, to be exact) and pick up an origami heart for yourself.
A Fold Apart releases in June for Nintendo Switch and Windows.
