LittleBigPlanet Competition: It’s Tearaway Time!

Steven Isbell's Avatar Posted by LittleBigPlanet Community Coordinator

The Sackfolk of LittleBigPlanet are getting very excited for the release of Tearaway on PS Vita later this year and they want to put on the most splendid of welcomes for Iota and Atoi by creating some simply fantastic levels that will pay tribute to their new friends… But they need YOUR help!

LittleBigPlanet Tearaway Competition Pack

If you head over to PlayStation Store today, you can pick up a free, excitingly exclusive Tearaway Competition Pack that contains a marvellous music track from Sogport, one of the many locations that Iota and Atoi will visit during their journey in Tearaway, as well as being chock full of new stickers to really help kick start your papery creativity.

LittleBigPlanet Tearaway Competition

After picking up your free goodies from the Store, it’s time to get all paper-crafty on either LittleBigPlanet 2 or LittleBigPlanet PS Vita by diving into create mode and creating the most wonderfully inspired Tearaway level.

When you have finished crafting your most crafty of creations, you will want to publish your level for the rest of the community to see. Not only that but we’re hosting a competition that will give you the chance win some fab goodies up for grabs for our favorite levels!

To enter the Tearaway Competition just publish your level and make sure to add [TearawayCompetitionUS] to the name of your new level and have it published before 8PM EDT/5PM PDT on September 14th.

After the competition closes, all of your amazing levels will be judged by the LBP and Tearaway creators themselves: Media Molecule!

From all of the entries, they will pick out One Grand Prize Winner to receive a PS Vita and the Rare Prize Crown for LittleBigPlanet. Meanwhile, four Marvellous Runner-ups will also be selected to receive some exclusive signed Tearaway artwork!

Entries will be judged on originality, creativity and general Tearaway-ness…

So be sure to don your creative caps and give it your all!

For full details on how to enter the competition and everything else you need to know, just pop over here*! (*link updated!)

Before you head off to LittleBigPlanet to unleash your creativity, why not take a sneak peek at the land of Tearaway for some inspiration?

Good luck to all who enter, we can’t wait to see all of the great Tearaway-inspired levels that you create! Include [TearawayCompetitionUS] in the name of your levels to enter this fab competition!

Was this the announcement you spoke of yesterday? That’s disappointing.

    That’s great! We hope you enjoy Sogport Song and the new stickers!

I remember thinking it’d be cool if LBP and Tearaway were connected.

    Well, it seemed only right to have Sackboy and the community welcome iota and atoi to the PlayStation family! :)

LOL. The very 1st comment is negative. SMDH. Gamers, How far have we fallen.
On a brighter note, Tearaway looks AWESOMEEEEEEEE.

Also can’t wait for Gamescom next week! Hope to hear some new LBP news there!

August 13th, 8:56 am

PHEW… I was scared you guys would announce LBP3 for PS3 today, to get that announcement out of the way for Gamescom. THE HOPE FOR A PS4 LBP AT GAMESCOM LIVES ON!!!

YES been waiting for a competition to test out my creativity and I can’t wait for Tearaway to come out so I could use a lot more stuff on the vita got a 32gb memory card even though it was 100 dollars but hey it’s worth the space

    Lots of space to let your creativity flow on LittleBigPlanet! :)

@1 Not that I’m saying this is you but the real disappointment is the internet’s tendency to blow the tiniest hint of news way out of proportion. Someone says “we have news coming” and the internet takes it to it’s craziest potential outcome and then gets mad when it’s not that which they imagined. Within the context of the LittleBigPlanet world, this is exciting news.

Yes¡¡¡¡¡, a new song for LBPvita and free. The game needs more songs but this is a step forward, Thanks :D.

Is it possible to bring LBP Karting to psvita?

“LBP Tearaway Competition (the “Promotion”) is open only to legal residents of the 50 United States and the District of Columbia”

I’m a sad Mexican panda ;_;

    We’re sad too. :(
    We would absolutely love to involve everyone and we try to include as many people as we can but it’s simply not possible to include everyone! So I apologise if you’re feeling a little left out this time. =/

    However we have made sure that the free Tearaway Competition Pack DLC is available in all regions because we didn’t want anyone to miss out on the free content! :)

I posted in the forums that the news would probably “just” be Iota and Atoi LBP costumes. I was close – it is Tearaway related.

I don’t have a PS3 and never picked up LBP Vita, so can’t participate, but I’m really looking forward to Tearway!!! Deciding whether to preorder a physical copy or get it digital.

Tell Rex that Andrew says hello! Met him at GDC…he won’t remember me. Lol

US only? :/

August 13th, 10:35 am

Judging from your reply to #6, I guess we won’t be hearing about LBP3 for the PS4. Truly a shame. :(

Just wanted to say that I can’t wait for Tearaway. Also, the pre-order bonuses are the best I’ve seen in some time! After KZ Mercenary’s disappointing pre-order reveal I’m really happy this game got a good one.

YorlecmNwahs said:

August 13th, 11:21 am

I thought the announcement would be LBP3. Oh well, this is good too.

alain251 said:

August 13th, 1:07 pm

Is the contest for US only? Because I’m frensh, and this contest sounds very nice :)

The715Gamer said:

This is awesome but I have school, can’t wait to see what people create though!!!!!!!!!

    That’s cool, we understand. Try not to get too distracted creating paper craft in school though!
    Unless you’re in art class, in which case we encourage paper craft all the way! :)

Game-o-holic said:

August 13th, 5:52 pm

hmmm…That’s quite the lack-luster announcement, if this is indeed the announcement spoken about a day earlier. Sorry to be a sourpuss but I thought it would be something a little more interesting.

Sonik42 said:

August 13th, 5:54 pm

When does this competition actually end? You said to publish your level before 8 PM tomorrow but the promotion ends September 9th?

Sonik42 said:

August 13th, 5:55 pm

Oops I’m sorry. I misread that as August 14th.

    Haha, no problem. :)

    I read your first message and was pretty positive that we were planning to give everyone a little bit longer than a day to create. ;)

August 14th, 2:45 am

I cant create anything on my littlebigplanet. :( I’m hopeless at it. Been so long so I’m outa experience so don’t stand a chance. Can you make one for meee?? :)

And what exactly does paper craft do for a game? I used to draw out my map on paper then try to create it but it always turned out rubbish

PABR22 said:

August 14th, 7:44 am

This is why I love you guys! you pursue to include tearaway in little big planet and I wasn’t expecting any DLC until the game came out! Thanks!

MusicMan234 said:

August 15th, 3:09 pm

Since lbp on the vita could probably match Tearway even more because of the touch features, does that mean that vita has a better chance of winning or will it be based on each games capabilities.

Apeman24 said:

August 17th, 11:12 am

game looks good, as long as nothing is coming out around this date, I would love to support it.

CamoDude101 said:

August 18th, 8:53 am

I am entering the contest, but I would like a friend’s assistance. Can I enter as a group of friends, each of us eligible? If not, will we both be eligible to win if we each have levels on our own Earths, just linked together through a Level Link? If clarification is needed, I will be happy to provide it.
