'Tearaway' Coming to PS Vita

Posted Tue Oct 29, 2013 at 10:30 AM PDT by

Media Molecule wants you to meet the messengers.

Media Molecule, the studio behind the 'Little Big Planet' crafty platformer series of games, is almost ready to release the single player 'Tearaway.' The game was originally set to release in mid-November but was ultimately pushed back to the ever crowded November 22nd.

Unlike 'Little Big Planet,' Tearaway is not a platformer nor does it allow the player to directly control the characters. Instead, the PS Vita various interfaces, such as its two touch screens, are the means for the player to interact with the messengers and their world. Media Molecule has explained that it is the messengers' goal to communicate with the player.

From Media Molecule, "You first meet iota or atoi at the start of our journey, when a strange message is sent to you from a papery dimension. Before you can read it, it falls back down into the papery world it came from, and comes to life."

"Some villainous Scraps immediately try to stir up some trouble, but you sweep in and save the day using your giant fleshy fingers to squash them. Glancing skywards at your face peeping through a hole in the sun, your messenger sees it was you that saved them, and from this moment forth the bond between you both will grow stronger and stronger."

Those who pre-order 'Tearaway' from retailers like Amazon, will net the Special Delivery Bundle, which includes:

Audiolicious Tearaway Soundtrack with bonus track
Opulent iota and atoi costumes for LittleBigPlanet
Exclusive skin for the in-game rideable pig*, and printable papercraft plan to match
Splendiferous iota and atoi Avatars for use on PlayStation Network
Resplendent PlayStation Vita Wallpaper
