Tearaway is one of the best games on the Playstation Vita. It released relatively early in its life, and this week the game got a new chance to reach more players by being ported to the PlayStation 4.
Explore a spectacular world held entirely in your hands. Embark on a unique adventure from the creative minds behind LittleBigPlanet™ with your new friend, the adventurous IOTA or the intrepid ATOI — a papercraft messenger from another dimension with a unique message to deliver — to you!
Tearaway is a new IP from the creative minds at Media Molecule (which brought us the Little Big Planet games) and is also their first Playstation Vita game. This game is heavily promoted by Sony and before going any further, take note that this is one of the best games I played on the Vita, and definitively the most original one!
You may have missed it but Sony’s conference at E3 included the PS Vita. Among the games showcased was the delightful Tearaway which we haven’t seen since it was announced at Gamescom last year. Media Molecule folded and glued together a new trailer for E3 where you can see the gorgeous paper craft style and excellent use of the rear touch pad in action. Check it out!
I’m off to make a paper elk.
It looks like Media Molecule has been hard at work making their next game (possibly franchise?). Revealed today is Tearaway, a game designed specifically for the Vita, using pretty much all of the Vita’s user input functionality.
The game stars iota, who is a messenger and has a message to deliver (to you), and, well, you. Mm says that the message is unique to every player, so who knows what that message reads. Anyway, you set out with iota to help others in the paper world, using a number of special powers, as described below:
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.
