Welcome to the wonderful world of Tearaway! A beautiful world of papercraft, imagination and wonderment, full of charm and magic brought to us by Media Molecule, creators of the LittleBigPlanet series. A world brought to you exclusively through your Playstation Vita system.
What's the Game About?
The game centers around a Messenger from Tearaway's world who has a very special message to deliver. Who does he (or she!) have to deliver it to? Why You, of course! Or rather, the You who has the ability to peer into Tearaway's universe through the very sun itself!
Of course, there are a few issues associated with this. Crossing worlds is not an easy task, especially when the portal through which is as high up as the sun is. Still, with a little adventure and a little cooperation, You and Iota (or Atoi!) can surely come together to find out what this special message is!
So it's a Single-Player Game?
Yes. The game is all about the journey between Iota/Atoi and You. However, there is a social hub at Tearaway.me
where you can upload some photos to for sharing, as well as get access to Papercraft Patterns for printing that you unlock during the game!
So I can customize my character?
Absolutely! As one of the nicer parts of the game, you can hold your finger to Iota or Atoi to enter the customization screen which allows you to buy and apply bits and bobs to make great and/or funny faces for your little delivery person. Pieces are purchased with confetti which you collect in-game, and are only one-time buys for unlimited applications, so no worries on that front. Go wild! As an added bonus, you can create your own papercraft items and apply them to your character! But you...should probably be nice. I'm fairly sure that Iota would not appreciate running around with a crudely cut cardstock naughty bit attached to his face.
Should I buy this game?
Well, let's let a couple trailers speak for themselves, yeah?
Tearaway is available NOW
, so head out to your local retailer, check out Amazon, or buy it directly from the Playstation Store!
Once you get the Camera, you can start taking Selfies of your Delivery Person, so if you want to show off how great or wacky your Iota/Atoi looks, share it! I'll be more than happy to add them here to the OP if you'd like.
(Yes you can just take screenshots with the Playstation Button+Start like usual, but shh)
Mine! (I'll probably change him, but it's just an example to get us started)
Now get crafting!
