Tearaway release date and cover art revealed

  • Posted April 9th, 2013 at 15:11 EDT by Kyle Prahl

Media Molecule has unveiled the final cover art and release date for its wildly creative PlayStation Vita platformer, Tearaway.

In Tearaway, players guide iota--or female counterpart atoi--through papercraft worlds that react to your tactile input. Bridges can be unfurled, holes can be poked, and sheets can be blown across colorful locales like Sogport, which we experienced in a hands-on preview earlier this year.

Tearaway will hit stores shelves and PlayStation Network on October 22, and when it does, it will be sporting the dual-sided, reversible cover art you see below.

Media Molecule Community Manager James Spafford divulged more Tearaway details on the official PlayStation Blog:

"You’ll uncover a magical dimension inspired by folklore, and built realistically from paper that unfolds and comes alive before your very eyes. As you explore this world you’ll meet the papercraft creatures that live within it, help out strange new friends and encounter dangerous challenges. We’ve designed the world of Tearaway to blend with our own through the unique features of the PS Vita, which allow you to help your messenger buddy to solve puzzles using the power of touch, literally breathe new life into this papercraft land, and reach up into the world using the rear-touch panel to see your fingertips appear inside the game! We think this is an adventure unlike anything you’ve played before."

Sounds good to us!
