Embark on your own unique adventure through a vibrant papercraft world that you hold in the palm of your hand. Tearaway for PlayStation(r)Vita is the next creative masterpiece from Media Molecule; the critically acclaimed developer behind the award winning LittleBigPlanet franchise. Inspired by and created specifically for PS Vita the tactile world of Tearaway is a beautifully crafted 3D open environment built completely out of paper that behaves with the real world physics of actual paper material brought magically to life.
Tearaway is a ‘buddy-movie’ style adventure between the player and their new friend a papercraftmessenger from another dimension. Locked away inside their envelope head is a unique message and to release that message the player and their friend will need to travel on a rites-of-passage adventure together. Players choose between adventurous messenger IOTA or female ATOI to be their faithful companion on their journey through a world inspired by classic stories and folklore.
Utilizing PS Vita’s unique features players themselves will co-star and appear in Tearaway playfully merging the real world and the game world sometimes in a tactile creative way and sometimes in dramatically destructive methods. While navigating their messenger with the dual analog sticks they will also get to see their surroundings appearing in-game through the use of the PS Vita’s cameras and the PS Vita’s microphone will allow them to breathe storms into this paper land. Players will also see their own fingertips push up into the environment to come to their messenger’s aid via backtouch or unfold areas of scenery with the front touch bringing a world they can feel in their fingers and control right in the palm of their hands.
