44w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton has posted up a video today which pieces together the weird world of Tearaway for the PlayStation Vita handheld game console.
Below are the details, to quote: Hopefully you all took the time to enjoy the new trailer for Media Molecule's forthcoming PS Vita adventure, Tearaway, last week. It's one of the loveliest titles inbound for any platform, bursting at the seams with invention, wit and creativity.
We stopped by Mm's Guildford HQ late last month to check up on progress, and grabbed director Rex Crowle for a quick chat about the game's unusual inspirations and influences. Read on to find out more about the eccentric themes that the team are pulling in an effort to make a truly unique video game...
First things first: paper. The entire game world is built out of the stuff, and you'll be manipulating it with your virtual fingers.
"I think it married together the main things I wanted to do with the game - of it just feeling very tactile and being something you really wanted to hold in your hands," explains Rex.
"And then we also wanted to provide players an interesting way of taking stuff from inside the game, outside the game, so they can build their own version of the experience and expand it out into...
45w ago - Sony Community Manager James Spafford has posted up a fresh Tearaway: Welcome to Sogport PS Vita trailer video today with details below.
To quote: It's been a little while since we updated you on our progress making Tearaway, but that all changes today!
We recently showed some new parts of the game to members of the gaming press, and their previews and coverage of that should start appearing today across the Web. We introduced them to an area of the game we've been working on for quite some time, and today we'd like you to see it too!
Just one of the stops you'll make as you go on your delivery adventure in the world of Tearaway is Sogport, a mysterious island marooned in a deep sea of glue, and inhabited by some very fishy folk with a fearful obsession with the island's monstrous local wildlife. See for yourself...
Last August we introduced you to iota, and today we're really excited to introduce atoi (pronounced like the French phrase a'toi - "ah-twa" )
When you start your adventure, you'll be able to customize the game to your liking, choosing which messenger will accompany you on your journey, either iota or atoi, and also on the shape, size and color of your...
68w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton has shared some video interview footage today spotlighting Tearaway by Media Molecule below.
To quote: One of the big highlights of Gamescom last week was Media Molecule's return to the spotlight with Vita adventure Tearaway - the UK studio's first title since LittleBigPlanet 2.
Predictably, it's a riot of colour, creativity and wild invention, telling the story of iota - a plucky young hero on a mission to deliver a unique message to you, the player.
You'll help him on his way by interacting with his environment via the Vita's touch screen and rear touch panel. It looks like an absolute delight to play, leveraging all the Vita's features to offer up a unique, exciting gameplay experience.
The morning after they revealed the game on stage during the Sony press conference, Media Molecule co-founder Alex Evans and "design lead/chief doodler" Rex Crowle kindly sat down with me for a quick chat about the ideas driving the game, as well as a few words on the LittleBigPlanet series.
Take a look at the video below, and then, for good measure, treat yourself to one...
69w ago - Media Molecule Studio Director Siobhan Reddy has officially revealed their new project today, dubbed Tearaway for Sony's PlayStation Vita handheld console!
To quote: Tearaway is kind of like a buddy movie. It stars iota, a messenger from a paper dimension, whose envelope head contains an urgent message to deliver... to you!
It's a very special message, and one that's unique for each and every player. In order to read yours, you'll need to take up the role of co-star and, together with iota, journey through the vibrant papery landscape – two buddies going on an epic adventure.
You and iota will travel afar, taking on enemies and helping those in need. You'll conquer adversity and discover magical papery surprises. But in Tearaway, you're holding more than just a PS Vita in your hands - you're holding the paper world itself!
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...
