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.

Chroma: A musical first-person shooter from Harmonix photo
Chroma: A musical first-person shooter from Harmonix
by Dale North

It makes sense that when word gets out that Harmonix is working on a new game, everyone is going to want to see it. This was exactly the case at an invite-only showing earlier this month, taking place during D.I.C.E. Summit 2014.

I sat in a small meeting room in a Las Vegas hotel with a few other journalists, and Double Fine's Tim Schafer worked his way into the room to also see Harmonix's next big project. When attendees were asked to guess what kind of new game this might be, Schafer called out jokingly, "A first-person shooter!"

No one reacted as they probably already knew.

A few minutes later, after Harmonix's John Drake began the presentation of this new game, Schafer blurted out with a surprised laugh. Apparently he was joking about the game being a first-person shooter, not knowing that he was absolutely right.
