ⓘ Tearaway (video game)

Tearaway is a platform adventure video game developed by developer Media Molecule for the PlayStation Vita. It was announced at Gamescom on 15 August 2012 and released on 20 November 2013 in Australia, on 22 November in Europe, North America and India, and 5 December 2013 in Japan. The game is inspired by papercraft and Rex Crowles drawings and doodles left around Media Molecules office.

An expanded remake of the game, titled Tearaway Unfolded, was released for the PlayStation 4 on 8 September 2015.


1. Gameplay

Tearaway is a third-person platform game which utilises almost all of the PlayStation Vitas features in some way. In one example demonstrated in the games announce trailer, the player encounters an elk who needs a new skin. The player is able to take a picture using the PS Vitas camera and have it applied to the papercraft animal. In a gameplay demo at Gamescom, Media Molecule demonstrated how the player is also able to use the PS Vitas rear touch panel to effectively push their fingers up through the ground to interact with enemies and the environment. The player is also capable of customizing Iota or Atoi by drawing designs on virtual paper, cutting them out, and applying them to their character. In another part of the demo, the player draws on the touchscreen with their finger to cut-out a paper crown for a character in the game. The player can use an in-game camera to collect various papercraft designs, and can assist non-player characters in exchange for confetti, the games currency.


2. Plot

Tearaway is about a messenger on a mission to deliver a unique message to the player, referred to by characters in-game as "the You". At the beginning of the game players can choose whether to play as the male character, Iota, or the female, Atoi, and navigate through a world constructed from paper to deliver the message. The player uses many of the Vitas features to guide Iota or Atoi, and must battle with scraps, small enemies that try to prevent the delivery.


3. Development

During the early stages of development, Tearaway was called Sandpit and was open world. As such, most of the games code still refers to itself as Sandpit. Additionally, the male protagonist Iota was originally named Oola and looked different to the female protagonist Atoi.


4. Reception

Tearaway was well received by critics, who praised its art style, creativity and inventive use of the PlayStation Vitas numerous inputs and sensors. The Sixth Axis said, "The PS Vitas various input devices are put to quite fantastic use throughout," and gave the game 9/10. Scoring the game 9.3/10, IGNs Daniel Krupa described Tearaway as "a simple story, told in a wonderful way", and called it "the best game Ive played on the PlayStation Vita". Grant E. Gaines of Hardcore Gamer was slightly less positive, giving the game a 3.5/5 and praising it for its unique gamely mechanics and beautiful art style but criticizing its length. GameZones Joe Donato gave it a 9.5/10, stating "The game is so intrinsically designed with the Vita platform in mind that its such a success. if you have a Vita you need to play it." In Japan, Famitsu gave the game a review score of 36/40.

Tearaway won Edge s 2013 award for best visual design in a game. The game received eight nominations in the categories of "Best Game", "Best British Game", "Best Family Game", "Best Mobile & Handheld Game", "Best Original Music", "Artistic Achievement", "Game Design" and "Game Innovation" for the 2014 BAFTA Video Games Awards; of these nominations, Tearaway won the awards for Best Mobile & Handheld Game, Best Artistic Achievement, and best Family game.
