Above the Fold is a newspaper simulation game, where you play the Editor-in-Chief. The game begins in 1998, right at the dawn of the Internet. Can you succeed against 24-hour news TV and new websites popping up to steal your readers away?
Go back to when flip phones were hot, and fax machines ruled the office, and build a newspaper!
Can you adapt, as email takes over, and something called “weblogs” appear? Will you create a specialty magazine, a tabloid, or an international news leader?
You’re the editor in chief but there is also a mysterious Owner to please, and the ever-important Advertisers. Let’s not forget the Subscriber base, even if it starts out small.
Grow that tiny, local rag into a media power house with 1 million Subscribers within 4 years, win awards, and prove your worth as an Editor — and you’ll win the game!
Above the Fold launched in Early Access on Steam in 2018 and goes full release on May 31, 2022.
