Folia is intended to allow developers to create virtual storybooks with branching choices. Folia displays content with an image on the left, and a scrolling text log on the right. Commands can be used to clear and change text and art, or to add music and sounds.

While the engine can be used by a novice programmer to make interactive games, it is based on Lua and can therefore be expanded if necessary.

Games built with the engine can be run as desktop applications on Windows and Linux. It does not support HTML or browser export.
