has shared a fresh Tearaway video today inviting fans to unfold a new adventure this coming October 22 on PS Vita.
To quote: Tearaway will be available on shelves and on PSN October 22nd! We can't wait for you to get your hands on, and indeed in, our new game at the end of the year.
In Tearaway you'll journey through a vibrant, living papery world, with a plucky messenger who has a unique message to deliver - to you!
As the papery world of Tearaway unfolds in your hands, you'll be able to use your god-like powers to help your new messenger friend, iota or atoi, complete their very special delivery.
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.
Here's a little more backstory on how Tearaway came to be from our very own doodle-meister and lead designer, Rex Crowle.
Normally a game has just one piece of box art, but we have two main characters for you to choose from - iota and atoi. Who should go on the front of the box then?
It was an impossible choice for us to make, so instead of making it, we made a reversible double sided inlay, so you can decide for yourself! See both versions at the top of this post. We'll be back with more Tearaway news soon!
