Media Molecule’s New Project Revealed: Tearaway for PS Vita

Siobhan Reddy's Avatar + Posted by Siobhan Reddy on Aug 14, 2012 // Studio Director, Media Molecule

Tearaway is kind of like a buddy movie. It stars iota, a messenger from a paper dimension, whose envelope head contains an urgent message to deliver… to you! It’s a very special message, and one that’s unique for each and every player. In order to read yours, you’ll need to take up the role of co-star and, together with iota, journey through the vibrant papery landscape — two buddies going on an epic adventure.

You and iota will travel afar, taking on enemies and helping those in need. You’ll conquer adversity and discover magical papery surprises. But in Tearaway, you’re holding more than just a PS Vita in your hands — you’re holding the paper world itself!

Using the god-like powers inherent to someone who can hold an entire world in their giant hands, you can make your presence felt using a wide range of godly powers that take advantage of all the PS Vita’s bells and whistles — some subtle and some epic. You can shake things up or turn them upside down. A gentle breath from you is a gusty storm. You can even poke your fingers into the back of the PS Vita to tear through into the world and help iota complete this very special delivery.

Check out all this and more in the trailer below…

Anything you see in Tearaway’s papercraft world can be created in the real world from bits of paper! See for yourself — head on over to our Facebook page to get the plans to make your very own customizable Tearaway Papercraft Elk. Be sure to visit us on Twitter too, and show us your creations! For anything else, you can check out Tearaway’s official site.

I’m not especially into LBPs gameplay and overall design concepts, and Sackboy creeps me out. But THIS game, this looks EXCELLENT. I was just thinking last night that we needed more main characters who wear berets or headbands. Lo and behold, we get a paper-thingy-guy with a headband. He looks like Paper Rambo, which is indescribably cool

This looks amazing! I’m really hoping for a lengthy journey in this game. With all those elements, I could see this as being a 20+ hour game

Top notch development once again. This is what Vita was made for. Games should take advantage of Vita as much as possible. When developers do we end up with unique content like this. Good job Media Molecule once again it looks like you have hit a home run. Keep up the great work.

Sold.

Between AC: Liberation, Sound Shapes, Papo & Yo and now this, the Vita is starting to live up to it’s original hype for me at least.

I think at the end of the game, when Iota brings you your message, it should be a teaser for MediaMolecule’s next “Big Project.”
