New IP from the creators of LittleBigPlanet.

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.

Watch the debut trailer below. View the first screenshots at the gallery. Visit the game’s official site here.

    At first when Iota was in the white room, I think Meh.
    But when they show the world, I’m amazed and the touch control looks fun :D

    Are you serious abuot this… there is no more excitement about this?

    Does a platformer have to be Mario for anyone to care?

    This game has singlehandedly given me so much more confidence for Sony’s direction in Vita. I could care less about having no games other than MGS and Stardust on my Vita right now, because I know this is coming now.

    Also Killzone helped. But seriously, this is a serious Vita game. By FAR the best thing I have seen for the platform, bar none.

    Also, more 4th wall breaking than Deadpool any day of the week. This looks AWESOME.

    That was a really cool trailer. This game seem to be utilizing just about every aspect of the Vita, quite impressive.
