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...

Any excuse to talk about Tearaway is a great thing

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...

Media Molecule on the challenges of making Tearaway photo
Media Molecule on the challenges of making Tearaway
by Dale North

Earlier this month, I caught up with Media Molecule's Rex Crowle, lead creator on one of my favorite games of last year, Tearaway. My main goal was simple: to thank him for such a fantastic Vita game. But we ended up chatting about Tearaway's reception, as well as some of the challenges that Media Molecule had to work through to bring us the final release.

I also repeatedly told him that they should make another Tearaway game.

Tearaway's lovely soundtrack is on sale now

You bought Tearaway, right? What am I saying? Of course you did. It was an exemplary new IP like we always ask for, a triumph of imagination and creativity, a boon to the Vita, and as low as $20. There would be little reason...

Tearaway gets a promotional faux-children's show in Japan

A lot of people assume that anything cute and weird is bound to sell well in Japan. Like most generalizations about cultural preferences, that assumption doesn't always hold up. Despite being arguably the cutest, weirdest se...

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...

Review: Tearaway photo
Review: Tearaway
by Steven Hansen

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, wrinkled man with a mustache of frayed steel wool.

When I realized it was the seats and man across from me, a hole ripped open in the waiting room, spewing shredded strips of paper, and I fell into the papery world of Tearaway.

Here's a taste of the incredible music in Tearaway

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...

Can this TV spot help people not forget about Tearaway?

"Probably not," feels like the realist answer; "I hope so," the optimist answer. LittleBigPlanet developer MediaMolecule's Tearaway is so good. The problem is that it's on the Vita and up against the likes of Super Mario 3D ...
