See the origins of a paper craft world.

Tearaway will launch on October 22 in North America, October 23 in Europe, October 24 in Australia and New Zealand, and October 25 in the United Kingdom and Ireland, Sony and Media Molecule has announced.

The game will include a reversible cover, showing Iota and Atoi, the two main characters players can choose from in the game.

“In Tearaway you’ll journey through a vibrant, living papery world, with a plucky messenger who has a unique message to deliver – to you,” said Media Molecule community manager James Spafford on the PlayStation Blog.

“You’ll uncover a magical dimension inspired by folklore, and built realistically from paper that unfolds and comes alive before your very eyes. As you explore this world you’ll meet the papercraft creatures that live within it, help out strange new friends and encounter dangerous challenges.

“We’ve designed the world of Tearaway to blend with our own through the unique features of the PS Vita, which allow you to help your messenger buddy to solve puzzles using the power of touch, literally breathe new life into this papercraft land, and reach up into the world using the rear-touch panel to see your fingertips appear inside the game! We think this is an adventure unlike anything you’ve played before.”

        Just ignore the downvoters – they do it all the time even when someone is neutral.

        I’m against downvotes, but I can see their point of view. The game isn’t even out yet, and she already loves it? If it was the second or third game in the franchise, or if Sony released a demo. But this is a brand new IP. Don’t count your chickens before they hatch

        Just my 2cents :P

          Can you honestly fault someone with being in love with the concept? Goodness, downvoting people for ENTHUSIASM, is a bit silly, no matter how you cut it.

          • Adol Christin

            I love the concept myself. Just don’t count your chickens before they hatch :)

            • Kurisu Makise

              Heh, that last bit is indeed very true.”Cautiously” optimistic is always the best state to be in admittedly. Still, in MM I trust, so I don’t think @facebook-100000700595260:disqus or others will be disappointed.
