Spark your imagination with «Tearaway™ Unfolded»!
Last week amazing creators of «LittleBigPlanet™» have agreed to open their doors for a summer Away Day - a one day studio showcase at Media Molecule for key Gaming Media, attended and hosted by key Media Molecule staff.
You can find more about their creative Team on the Official page (also, other really important information is available there specifically for web nerds and cats :smileysurprised:. Oh, and there's a styleguide! :Lol:)
So, we were lucky enough to attend the Event and find out more about this mesmerizing adventure through a magical world of paper, rebuilt on PlayStation®4; for these connoisseurs we focused on the «Unfolded» elements of the game, specifically, the additional content, re-mastered visuals, bespoke control functionality and the companion app, had 1-2-1 interviews with key Team Members where they were answering your questions, roof terrace drinks and a BBQ, hanging out with the Molecules (*check out the pic above :smileyvery-happy:), a Studio tour, and some paper crafting, obviously! ;)
A little Studio tour in Surrey:
More to come...
A bit about their Team:
They have «a whatever you need to do your work approach» and this also includes a kitchen - full of all the food and drink you could ever ask for. Check out the amount of cereals :smileysurprised: on the shelves! (click on the image for better view *scary)
Naturally, such a Creative Team love making things together and it can be seen throughout the Studio - floor is open, bright, colourful, and a little bit messy. ^,,,^
They have some cosy meeting areas, and some comfortable quiet thinking spaces to retreat to when things get too noisy.
There’s also an Art-Studio where they hold life drawing classes every week, and get paint all over the floor. :smileytongue:
Enough said about the Team :xRolleyes: :Lol: , lets focus on the main part of this thread - Showcase and the game itself!
And why not to listen to the music track by most talented composer, Brian D'Oliveira (Brian has composed music for video games such as Papo &Yo, LittleBigPlanet™3 and Tearaway™. he is passionate about mastering (and building) new instruments, technologies and tools in combination with ancient musical cultures and the ability to give them new lives in modern formats. :smileysurprised:), whilst reading about the adventures through the magical world (sort of give it a 3D affect :smileytongue:).
The adventure that was once held in your hands has been reimagined as a world inside your TV, with a bigger, more beautiful world to explore, and all new fourth-wall-busting ways to play.
Rex Crowle has opened showcase by dedicating exclusive skins in «Tearaway™» style to his amazing Team.
Indeed, key Media Molecule staff was «immortalised» in vibrant papery world! :smileytongue:
*Naturally, after that specific moment Mm has politely asked all Media to keep the best parts of game until the release of the game :smileywink: to the public (no photography or a video of the game allowed), on the 9th September for SCEE, with the UK releasing on the 11th.
In the meantime, you can pre-order the game in here.
From Rex Crowle about:
Creating a game for PS4™:
«It was extremely important to us to build this personal connection between you, a game and a DUALSHOCK 4 controller, and make you feel like you are going on a journey in this creative world. It was giving us new opportunities: touch pad, built-in speaker, motion sensors, SHARE button and a light bar. If you are using a touch pad, then you are reaching new exciting in-game possibilities. Obviously, the difference this time was a distance between you, outside of the game, TV and a controller, and rather trying to ignore it, we embraced the new functions and asked the whole Team to be involved in creating first prototypes».
«As you may have guessed, we started from scratch changing the gaming world of Tearaway™ by bringing you a new customisation with the help of a few features:
There was no limit to our imagination».
New challenges await you, of course! Stay tuned!
«We took aboard comments from our fans and tried to implement them in this new game. One of the options we wanted to add is a family feel to the project, so each member of your family could play along and be a part of your paper world. For example, you can use any mobile device, such as iOS, Android or even a PS Vita, and use our PlayStation App to customise your game. Simply take a picture with your device, use a touch pad, send a photo in and change dramatically the world in the game! :) We hope to flood the Internet with some squirrels and colour!»
Rex Crowle is answering some of your questions during an Interview:
Thank you Rex!
And this is how the professionals do it (during the session «Hands-on»)!

And last, but not least...a few pics from the party!
A bit of music from Brian D'Oliveira to lift your mode. :)
Mm is signing a few amazing autographs for the EU Official PlayStation Forum Communities. Stay tuned!
Matthew Willis and Brian D'Oliveira
Allow me to finish with the words from about the game:
«Reach into your TV with your DUALSHOCK 4 wireless controller to unleash gusts of wind to unfold hidden areas, confound enemies and ride a paper plane. Use your new powers to catch objects thrown out of the TV screen and hurl them back into hard-to-reach places or at enemies, and guide atoi through scary places by shining the light bar at the screen».
