3w ago - Sony Community Manager James Spafford announced that Tearaway arrives this Friday on PS Vita, and has invited fans to watch the PlayStation Vita launch trailer video below.
To quote: We're nearly there! Tearaway is out this Friday. We're really looking forward to you folks finally getting your hands in our new game - it's so great to be this close.
Just in the nick of time, we've launched the Tearaway community site - Tearaway.me - which is where all your photos and papercraft models will be displayed. You can check it out right now, and get a few free papercraft models for signing in, even before you own the game. You'll also see some of the photos of people who have been reviewing Tearaway.
To celebrate our imminent launch, we've put together this new trailer for Tearaway, a final little teaser of what awaits you come Friday.
There are still two days left to pre-order Tearaway and get your hands on some tasty pre-order bonuses. If you want to buy it digitally, you'll get the pre-order items as long as you buy it from PlayStation Store in the first week of release.
If you still haven't made up your mind about Tearaway after watching the trailer, you'll...
3w ago - Sony Community Manager James Spafford posted up a video today spotlighting Media Molecule, the team behind Tearaway on PS Vita below!
To quote: The last video in our little Tearaway miniseries is all about us: Media Molecule, the studio behind Tearaway and our first game LittleBigPlanet.
The video focuses on how we work, and how we assure everyone's ideas are counted. Mm is an interesting place, a rather chaotic place where the term 'herding cats' gets thrown around a lot, but where somehow the chaos is channeled into communal creativity and the games we love to make.
We love to inspire creativity in people, and we love to create our own unique games that we think will give people experiences unlike any they've had before.
Tearaway is out this Friday, November 22nd and we hope it will provide players with exactly that - a new game experience unlike any other - we'll let you be the judge!
We hope you enjoy this last video in the series- remember to pre-order Tearaway to secure the cool pre-order bonus items. Week one orders at the PS Store will also include the bonus items, so those who prefer the digital version will not miss out!
4w ago - Sony Community Manager James Spafford is here with a new behind the scene video today spotlighting the music of Tearaway on PlayStation Vita.
To quote: Tearaway is out in just over a week and we can't wait for you to play it! To get you even more excited, take a little peek at the third video in our series looking at all the bits and bobs that make Tearaway the unique and special thing that it is.
This one will tell you all about the splendid sounds and music we made especially for the game, including a completely bespoke original score.
This very special soundtrack is inspired by all sorts of folklore and legends, and even features snippets of some sea shanties our Head of Audio Kenny Young wrote for the game, one of which made it into our Sogport trailer back in January.
If that doesn't make you want to ride a pig through a beautiful paper world we don't know what will.
You can get your hands on the Tearaway Original Soundtrack first with the Special Delivery Pre-Order Pack available both at your favorite retailer and on the PS Store for a limited time - so if you like what you hear, head over to the store and pre-order...
8w ago - Sony Community Manager James Spafford outlined some of Tearaway's papery challenges and PS Vita character customization for fans below today.
To quote: Even though Tearaway is a single-player game - a personal journey shared by you, and your little messenger friend, iota or atoi - we couldn't resist giving Tearaway players the chance to express themselves creatively.
We've already talked at length about the oodles of papercraft models you can collect as you play through the game, but there are also in-game challenges that will allow you to personalize the world as you travel through it.
A squirrel who needs a new crown, a chap whose moustache has been stolen by crows, and a pig that's too ugly... these are all examples of problems you'll be asked to solve through the cutting out of virtual paper shapes.
When the time comes to get crafty, you'll be presented with a virtual cutting mat, and a selection of colored paper sheets. Using the pencil tool, you can trace a shape that you want to cut out using the front touch. If you make a mistake, you can erase your flawed pencil lines with the eraser tool, but once you're happy with the shape, hit the scissors icon to cut it out.
You can layer multiple sheets on top of one another, just like using real paper, and once...
13w ago - Sony Community Manager James Spafford shared details today on building your own papercraft world in Tearaway on PlayStation Vita.
To quote: Tearaway is a game set in a papery world, which means that if you wanted to, you could craft the entire game from paper in the real world - and that's exactly what we hope people will do!
To help you along your way, we've filled the game will collectible papercraft plans, which you can unlock as you journey through the world.
As you play, you'll come across creatures, plants or objects that appear to be drained of their colour. Taking a picture of them with your character's in-game camera restores their colour, and unlocks their plan.
Each plan has various different skins - blank ones, or colorful ones, so you can either make something that looks like it does in the game, or customise them to look completely different and unique to you.
The plans will be accessed on our community website, where you'll find everything you've unlocked so far, and from here you'll be able to print them out, make them, and fill your house with papercraft!
The journey doesn't end there though. Once you've made your papercraft model, you can upload a picture of your creation to the website to share it with the...
