New Vita IP Tearaway stars a cute little guy named Iota. He's trapped in the world, in your Vita, and wants to get into the real world to "deliver a message." Media Molecule calls it a "buddy movie" that you make yourself. It's a striking 3D universe made entirely out of paper types.
The whole world of Tearaway is in your Vita, so you can manipulate it using Vita's front and rear touch features. In a sequence we saw Iota fall through a paper bridge. To help him out, the player was able to stick his finger into the game's world by touching the rear panel to push around blocks to create a path for Iota to climb up. The Vita's camera and microphone are also used in challenges.
Tearaway looks super cute. And a new IP for Vita is great news.
