Gamescom: Media Molecule Announces Its New Playstation IP
- Categorized in: Video Game News
Media Molecule are always on the hunt for the next creative gaming concept, and although their Littlebigplanet series has expanded to encompass many different consoles and genres, they feel that they want to do more with their next project. That project was announced today at Gamescom.
TearAway will be a Vita game starring a paper protagonist named Iota. It's an adventure game in which you must attempt to get Iota out of the game, and into the real world. Can't fault them for coming up with such a unique concept, right?
The entire world will be made out of paper, giving the game an almost Yoshi's Story storybook-styled look. It truly is a beautiful and striking game to look at.
TearAway will allow you to use the Vita to manipulate Iota's world by hitting the various controls on the Vita. For example, you can make the ground vibrate like a drum by tapping on the back of the system's rear touch pad. Alternately, you can attack enemies by pressing a finger firmly against the back of the rear touch pad, which will hilariously cause a giant finger to pop through Iota's paper floor and swat enemies away. It seems like Media Molecule is really buying into the whole "paper world" concept, and the game certianly looks all the more creative and unique for it. Finally, in a new trailer released for the game, the player can be seen blowing on the Vita to cause massive gusts in the game, tilting the Vita to literally tip the world on its side, photographing real-world textures to implant them on in-game objects, and shouting aloud to scare off enemies in-game.
