Candy-colored clowns and so much more
I didn't get a good look at Dreams, the upcoming creation-centric adventure from LittleBigPlanet and Tearaway maker Media Molecule, during Sony's Paris Games Week conference. I was too preoccupied with the other gaming news r...
Also Tearaway developer!
Media Molecule (LittleBigPlanet, Tearaway) has shown how its interesting new game, Dreams, works with a live demo of the game in alpha state that included plenty of rat possession.
Every player creates a custom Imp who follo...
When Media Molecule revealed its "next-gen creation suite" Dreams at E3, I really didn't get it. Okay, I make stuff. How do I make things? What's the creation suite like? How much flexibility do I have? What do I actually do ...
Challenging PS4 port flashes Metal Gear
Tearaway was the zenith of the PlayStation Vita. While many fine games have hit the platform since, few have been exclusive and original, and none used every inch of the Vita's additional capabilities to as good effect. That ...
With a cute doll
It has yet to be seen if the PS4 Tearaway Unfolded remake is necessary, but the original on Vita was pretty damn amazing. That's why this new Special Edition package is so tempting -- it includes a doll of the main male ...
Tearaway was one of the few games to take complete advantage of the Vita's extra features, smartly tying all of them into the narrative. Thus, porting it to the PlayStation 4 feels a bit odd.
Apparently one way Tearaway Unfo...

"I hope this fills your head with questions. That's natural." That's what Media Molecule's Alex Evans had to say about Dreams, the studio's latest project. He nailed it; Dreams has me wondering what the hell it is, whil...
Tearaway Unfolded is the PS4 port of the 2013 Vita game that was possibly my game of the year (I also gave it a 10/10, because it is excellent). The PlayStation Blog has confirmed some finer points about the release, includin...
Summer drought be damned
Now the former head of audio at Media Molecule, Kenneth Young has revealed that the PS4 not-really-a-port version of Tearaway is coming this summer.
After announcing that he was leaving Media Molecule to work for Media Molecule as an audio contractor, Young let his followers know that Tearaway Unfolded is set to ship this summer.
'An expanded re-telling'
Recently we learned that Media Molecule was bringing Tearaway -- one of my personal favorite Vita games -- to the PS4. They very briefly mentioned that it was similar to the first game at their gamescom conference, but now af...
Lots of pre-order options
Sumo Digital has announced a November 18, 2014 release date for LittleBigPlanet 3 on both PlayStation 3 and PS4. Levels created in the prior games will be compatible (and look better on PS4) and there are new characters to pl...
Is that you, Andross?
This teaser for Media Molecule's new PlayStation 4 project is curious. But first, here is the studio's explanation for what we're looking at (flashing light warning):
"A rendering error on our new PS4 project caused this tri...
In addition to the previously announced PS4
LittleBigPlanet 3 looks amazingly adorable with Sackboy's three additional friends, and I enjoyed the fact that the E3 demonstration was a real demo and not staged. As far as we knew based on E3, LBP3 would support old l...
Over 8.7 levels made, all will be playable
Sony has some LittleBigPlanet 3 (PS4) footage and the biggest change in the series is the introduction of new character types alongside Sackyboy.
Oddsock runs on all fours and quickly. It can wall jump and burst through cert...

Plenty of collectible T-shirts, figures, and other items available
If you're heading out to PAX East next weekend, you probably have a lot of extra spending money anyway, so why not stop by the PlayStation Worldwide Studios Community Exchange? That's "booth #608" in layman's terms, at the Bo...
Even if it's related to some ho-hum downloadable content
Tearaway is a fantastic amazing title you PlayStation Vita owners should already have in your collection. And I will take any excuse to sing the praises of this game, even when there's some silly downloadable content released...
Lots of paper for very little paper
Looking for something awesome to play on your Vita on the cheap? Media Molecule's brilliant Tearaway is being offered through Amazon right now for a mere $20 (a savings of 40%).
Sure it's the digital version, which means...
It's free, so why not?
Media Molecule have released a new Santa costume for Sackboy in LittleBigPlanet. It's free, which is nice. So yeah, go get it. Once you've done that, be sure to check out this list of Christmas-themed maps available for download.
Any LBP players out there had a go with the maps yet? Any recommendations?

If you like it, you can unlock it right from the demo
Did you know Tearaway is coming out this Friday? Did you know we really, really liked it? Good, because I wasn't going to let this one slip right past you. That's not happening on my watch. I don't think Sony is going to let...
I was sitting in a doctor’s office waiting room, lost in my Vita because doctors are terrible timekeepers. 2:00 pm means 2:00 pm, life-saving scumbag. Suddenly, I was looking at dimly lit tartan chairs and an old, wrink...
Truly a match made in heaven
In yet another behind-the-scenes video for Tearaway, the fine folks at Media Molecule today explain the importance of the array of options the PlayStation Vita offers that make the game what it is today. Since it acknowledge...
Head of audio Kenny Young goes behind the music
Every time I see a new aspect of Tearaway in more detail, I'm just taken aback by how incredible of a game it's shaped up to be. Today is no exception, because Sony has posted a new video as part of a series of behind-t...
Well, virtually at least
A new video for Tearaway explains the fundamental idea behind the paper in the game. The really freaking cool part about it all is that every individual piece inside the world is virtual paper, folded up exactly to the artis...
It drops next month alongside of the Xbox One
Tearaway has flown under the radar of many people out there, which is a shame given how intriguing it is. It looks and sounds a lot like LittleBigPlanet, but with its own sense of charm and visual style.
This newest trailer ...
Peel off your face
Media Molecule's amazing upcoming Vita game, Tearaway, is a long month away from release. A recent PlayStation Blog post talked about the creative, do-it-yourself elements of the new title from the LittleBigPlanet developers....
Wild pigs couldn't tear me away from Tearaway
Along with Puppeteer, Tearaway has to be the most delightful-looking game of the year. I'm torn as to which looks cuter. It might even be a legitimate contender for many game of the year awards. Hamza couldn't sing its prais...
Those pesky standards strike again
Media Molecule's anticipated 3D platformer Tearaway is taking a bit longer to wrap up than originally expected. The studio announced a one-month delay today, pushing the papercraft PlayStation Vita title all the way back to N...
A parade of indies
As previously discussed, Venus Patrol and MOCAtv's "alternative E3 event" HORIZON was pretty interesting both conceptually and in how it was executed. But what about the games?! That's why we're even here, right!?
A few of the larger announcements to come out of the event have already been covered here at Dtoid, but what about those smaller, beautiful indie games HORIZON promised?
Notes on the Indie-focused event from an attendee
Exactly one week ago, E3 was in full-swing in the bright city of Los Angles, California, and a brand new little event was quietly gearing up to happen. That lil' happening was HORIZON. Billed as an "alternative E3 event" and ...
Plus there's rideable pigs! RIDEABLE! PIGS!
Tearaway is one of my most anticipated games of the year now thanks to some recent hands-on time. It's a wonderful little platformer that makes use of all the Vita's features in creative ways. It also has quite the wonderful ...
