Tearaway is kind of like a buddy movie. It stars iota, a messenger from a paper dimension, whose envelope head contains an urgent message to deliver… to you! It’s a very special message, and one that’s unique for each and every player. In order to read yours, you’ll need to take up the role of co-star and, together with iota, journey through the vibrant papery landscape — two buddies going on an epic adventure.

You and iota will travel afar, taking on enemies and helping those in need. You’ll conquer adversity and discover magical papery surprises. But in Tearaway, you’re holding more than just a PS Vita in your hands — you’re holding the paper world itself!

Using the god-like powers inherent to someone who can hold an entire world in their giant hands, you can make your presence felt using a wide range of godly powers that take advantage of all the PS Vita’s bells and whistles — some subtle and some epic. You can shake things up or turn them upside down. A gentle breath from you is a gusty storm. You can even poke your fingers into the back of the PS Vita to tear through into the world and help iota complete this very special delivery.

Check out all this and more in the trailer below…

Anything you see in Tearaway’s papercraft world can be created in the real world from bits of paper! See for yourself — head on over to our Facebook page to get the plans to make your very own customizable Tearaway Papercraft Elk. Be sure to visit us on Twitter too, and show us your creations! For anything else, you can check out Tearaway’s official site.

Leave it to Media Molecule to come up with ingenious ways to use the Vita's capabilities.

Looks really neat, and apparently with only a team of 15 people too.

Just seeing this now, does look pretty damn cool, and a good way of using Vita's touch capabilities. Not sure it is my cup of tea just yet, but I am intrigued.

I will own a Vita again in time for this game <3

Hopefully get to play it at Eurogamer Expo in September, although it might be a bit too early for the game.

Wow way to go Sony, that looks amazing and VERY original. :D I especially like the fingers sticking into the game part, that's really neat.

Looks pretty darn good! Generally speaking, I'm not a fan of that back touch screen at all (I much prefer putting my hands over it as opposed to using those wells on the side), but this looks charming and creative enough for me to give it a chance. I'm a sucker for bright, cheerful worlds, so I'll definitely keep an eye on this one.
