LittleBigPlanet developer Media Molecule revealed its latest project during Sony’s Gamescom media briefing today. A new IP for PlayStation Vita, Tearaway is an adventure game set in a three-dimensional world made from paper. The player is considering a god in the game world, and must help Iota, “a plucky messenger [from another dimension] with a unique message to deliver,” make his delivery.
A demo shown on stage saw the player using the back touch pad to vibrate drums built into the ground, bouncing Iota to heights he is otherwise unable to reach. Another segment saw the player use the back touch pad to “rip” through the ground, breaking the “paper” it is made out of, and taking out an enemies in Iota’s path.
