After spending years on the LittleBigPlanet franchise, Media Molecule has revealed their next brand new IP: Tearaway, a paper world where you can help the hero Iota just by touching the back of your Vita.
Media Molecule co-founder Alex Evan announced the title at Sony's press conference at Gamescom. Using the Vita's touch capabilities, a player can tap the backside of the Vita to get Iota to jump, or maintain contact to push fingers into the game world to destroy enemies. To be honest, it sounds a lot like Little Deviants, a Vita launch game.
"We wondered 'Where do we take creative gaming next?' The Vita is an amazing tactile device," Evans said, and Tearaway uses those capabilities in a new way.
The debut trailer shows some pretty interesting player interaction with the game.
