Product Details:

Tearaway is the latest action-packed adventure from Media Molecule, the award-winning creators of the best-selling LittleBigPlanet series.

Embark upon a "buddy-movie" style adventure through a vibrant, living papery world, with a plucky messenger who has a unique message to deliver --- to YOU!

Choose to guide either IOTA or ATOI on this adventure, each a bold courier with an expressive personality, and a unique message for you locked away inside their envelope head. In order to read it, they're going to need your help to deliver it!

The papery world of Tearaway unfolds in your hands, allowing you to reach into the game with your god-like powers and help your new messenger friend complete this very special delivery, making you the co-star of the game.

As you travel together in this "buddy-movie" style adventure, you'll rely on each other's strengths to overcome perilous challenges, and form a long lasting bond. You'll uncover a magical dimension inspired by half-forgotten stories and folklore, built realistically from paper that unfolds and comes alive before your very eyes; from lost islands and forgotten forests, to bottomless canyons and mysterious structures.

As you guide your adventurous messenger through this world you'll meet the papercraft creatures that live within it, help out strange new friends and encounter dangerous challenges.

The world of Tearaway blends with our own through the unique features of the Playstation Vita, bringing Tearaway to life in exciting, unexpected and incredibly tactile ways: Reach up into the world using the rear-touch panel and see your fingertips appear inside the game, solve puzzles using the power of touch, or literally breathe new life into this papercraft land to open up new paths for your companion to explore.

As you play, you'll bring a little bit of this papery world back with you, as you collect plans to craft the creatures, treasures and surroundings of Tearaway from paper in the real world. As you explore, you'll also see more of your own surroundings appearing inside the paper world too!

KEY FEATURES

Paper Engine With Real World Physics

Tearaway's exclusive game engine creates a 3D animated world from sheets of paper to capture the real physicals of paper material that will tear, fold, or crumple, especially when the player reaches out and touches part of the world.

Unique Experience for Every Player

From unlocking the unique message inside their messenger's head, to decorating their journey, and even customizing how they appear inside the game, Tearaway delivers a personalized gameplay experience.

Players can even choose how their in-game finger shows up on the screen to resemble their own real-life fingers.

Core Gameplay Variety

From traversing and platforming to solving challenges and mini-puzzles, players will explore the open world environment during their journey to uncover their hidden message.

Immersive PS Vita Controls

Built from the ground up to take full advantage of the PS Vita's signature controls, Tearaway uses the full range of input features to deliver a more immersive unique gameplay experience that only PS Vita can deliver. Brought to life throughout the world of Tearaway, be it through the camera, microphone, tilt-sensors or as they see their own fingertips push through into the environment via rear touch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must own for Wes Anderson Fans I really enjoyed playing this game. It felt like I was sent back to summer camp when I was growing up. Really fun game mechanics to help you through various puzzles and defeat enemies. It has great replay value because you unlock certain actions later in the game that you need to unlock prizes in earlier levels. The story and soundtrack is terrific, It feels like if Wes Anderson(LifeAquatic,MoonriseKingdom,FantasticMr.Fox) made a video game this is it. I highly recommend this game to any PsVita owner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Truly Immersive Experience I picked up this game recently on the cheap, and after playing for a while, I thought to myself.......why did I not pick this game up sooner?? If you have a Vita you NEED to pick up this game - even more so now that the price has dropped. This game uses every possible input on the Vita and takes advantage of it to the fullest extent. The papercraft environment is really well done and looks like it was all cut out of construction paper. You see yourself as the sun in the game - just like the Teletubbies baby, so you can smile down benevolently on the land below, and use the controls every which way to get your character where you want to be. You can also customize your character, take pictures, and just have oodles of creative fun. This I would say will strike a chord with casual gamers both young and old, or for anyone who just wants a break from the usual cascade of dark, shoot-em-up, cookie-cutter games. This is a nice breath of fresh air!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Justifies a Vita purchase It's games like this that make having a portable worth it. Casual and fun while not requiring your entire day investment to get somewhere. Loved every minute of it, other vita developers should take notes from Media Molecule dev

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mm's new project is AMAZING After years of playing Little Big Planet, I heard that Mm was coming out with a new project Tearaway. I was so stoked that I pre-ordered it in August and the game makes the wait worth it. The Story of the game is simple, but they tell it in such a dynamic way and it is very immersive and makes YOU one of the main characters. The Gameplay was very impressive like as if I were interacting with the game myself like if I were to use the rear touchscreen in some areas you'll see a giant finger appear. The gameplay incorporated every aspect of the Vita's features. The Graphics were great, but got a little misty at times and it looked better in this sequence than the other sequence. The Lasting Appeal is not like LBP were you spend hours and hours trying to get one little object. In Tearaway you can either explore, get more paper craft plans, or find more presents and there is no online play which disappoints me. Overall, Tearaway is a MUST BUY for Vita players everything in there is truly breathtaking, and this is one of the Vita's signature games.
