Are you a Tearaway?

Tearaway is a brand new innovative gaming title from the clever people at Media Molecule, the critically-acclaimed developer behind the award-winning LittleBigPlanet™ series. Created specifically for PS Vita, and utilising many of the handheld consoles touchscreen features,  the tactile world of Tearaway is a beautifully-crafted, 3D open environment built completely out of paper that behaves as much as possible with the physical attributes and limitations of actual paper.

In the game, players control a messenger called Iota, (or Atoi, if playing as the female character). The idea is to guide your quirky little character around his home world of Sogport, jumping on different 3D platforms, overcoming obstacles and avoiding monsters, until his or her message is safely delivered.

Players are invited to interact with the virtual environment as much as possible, from helping the messenger to bounce onto higher and higher platforms by tapping the rear touchpad, or ripping open a new portal with their fingers on the touchscreen, or even using the PS vita camera to design new 'skins' or objects, and much, much more.

It sounds very exciting. The game was revealed at Gamescom on the 15th of August 2013, but Media Molecule has already cancelled its plans for an October release date, opting instead for the 22nd of November this year.

Media Molecule is known for its highly creative and brilliantly interactive gameplay, and Mini Gamers thinks that Tearaway is destined to be equally popular as the LittleBigPlanet games, and we look forward to bringing you more news on this title as it develops. Watch this space!
