Find out what it's like to play an incredible new adventure game, from the makers of LittleBigPlanet.
Tear into an amazing adventure
Hey you! Yes you... you're very special you know?
For you have been chosen to help save a world, the likes of which you've never seen before - a world made totally, utterly and completely out of paper. In this whimsical land lives a little messenger, and it's kind of their fault that this once peaceful place is now overrun with monsters, beasties and who-knows-what else.
This messenger now looks up to you - quite literally - in your home beyond the sun, for guidance. It turns out that you are their "powerful friend" who can hold this entire world in your hands... and now they need you to shake things up a bit.
You see, the messenger is on a super-important mission; locked away inside their envelope head is a very special delivery... with your name on it!
What could it be??
There's only one way to find out; you must work together to survive the perilous (but unbelievably fun) adventure that lies ahead. And with every papery footstep taken, a whole new story will unfold - just for you.
The next LittleBig thing
Have you ever heard of LittleBigPlanet? Of course you have.
Well the brilliantly-talented (and multi award-winning) studio Media Molecule behind the LBP franchise are the very same people that have created Tearaway.
Drawing on their years of development experience, Media Molecule has crafted a huge and vibrant papery world absolutely jam-packed with their trademark quirkiness, charm and super-sharp sense of humour.
While on your adventures with the brave little messenger of your choice - iota or atoi - not only will you meet a cast of funny and adorable characters, but you'll be able bring them to life (almost) in your own home, too. By taking photos of special characters, plants or objects, you will unlock papercraft plans that can be printed out and built using your own two hands.
Once you've done that, you can upload pictures of your creations to tearaway.me and share your talents with the world; while also taking a look at the models everyone else has put together.
Oh, and you can do all this while happily humming along to the soul-lifting and mesmeric soundtrack that accompanies your every move throughout the fun-filled papery world of Tearaway.
A papery world unfolds in your godlike hands
Tearaway is a platforming adventure with a twist - rather than just controlling the main character, you also play alongside them.
For you are an all-powerful being that can manipulate this papery world of the messenger in pretty much every way you can imagine; and also in some ways you probably can't. To complete the messenger's special delivery, you'll need to play around with the cool features of your PS Vita:
Rear Touch Pad: Move objects and attack enemies by poking your fingers into the game world, and tap drum skins to bounce your messenger to higher ground.
Touchscreen: Peel back layers of paper to discover hidden paths and goodies.
Motion Sensor: Defy the laws of gravity by shaking the papery world around to solve perplexing puzzles.
Microphone: Speak up... your voice can be a powerful asset.
Besides papercraft plans, you can also collect lots and lots of confetti; this world is absolutely littered with the colourful little scraps of paper. You can use your confetti to give your messenger a brand new look by unlocking lots of different paper shapes, or - for creative types - you can even design your own paper shapes whenever you like.
