With PS4’s papercraft-inspired adventure Tearaway Unfolded available on PS Plus this month, we asked Media Molecule to talk us through some unseen concepts behind the game’s creation. Here, designer Rex Crowle pinpoints key design junctures in Tearway’s development, illustrated through exclusive images from the game’s early days.
On this day, 10 years ago a little studio called Media Molecule was founded by a group of friends who went on to have some pretty incredible adventures together. Mark Healey, Alex Evans, Kareem Ettouney and David Smith all met whilst they were working at Lionhead Studios. Along with help from Chris Lee, the man with the business plan, they were soon joined by Siobhan Reddy, Anton Kirczenow and Francis Pang and Media Molecule was officially born!
Before we sign off for the year, we wanted to celebrate the creators who make not only PlayStation.Blog, but this industry in its entirety possible. It’s these studios who create the worlds we yearn to escape to, who write the stories upon whose every word we hang. It’s thanks to them that we can do what we love to do.
Today we’ve got some exciting Tearaway Unfolded news to share with you all. We’ve been busy crafting some exclusive new goodies to get your hands on. First up, we have not one but two DLC packs coming your way.
We tell stories over campfires, cocktails, loudspeakers, and controllers. Storytelling is one of the truest expressions of the human experience, and serves a key role in gaming. We at PlayStation want to celebrate this artform at PlayStation Experience on December 5th.
It’s October 21st, 2015 today and Sackboy has a brand new adventure in the Back to the Future Level Kit.
We recently announced our new Tearaway Unfolded Companion App, which will be releasing alongside the game when it launches next month. Today, we wanted to delve a little deeper into the app and share more about how it works. We’ve even made a shiny new video to show off the app and demonstrate the fun and exciting ways you can interact with the game, all from your couch!
What a week it’s been! After all the excitement and fanfare of E3, we wanted to take a moment to show you our fantastic new trailer for Tearaway Unfolded, and tell you a bit more about our brand new companion app which will be launching with the game on 8th September!
