OverviewOverview

Tearaway on PlayStation Vita and Tearaway Unfolded on PlayStation 4 create a game world entirely from paper as the setting for this fantastical adventure. It’s beautiful and funny, and offers a running, jumping exploration challenge. Drawing on Algonquian North American native folklore, it creates a story about identity and bravery against the odds in a quest to reach the source of life. Whether played on the portable PlayStation Vita or PlayStation 4, it uses unusual motion, camera and touch controls to draw the player into the action.

Junior school children will enjoy the exuberant challenge, and parents will appreciate the way the game rewards progress with physical cardboard cut-out models of the game’s characters ready to colour, stick and fold.

There is also a version available for the PlayStation Vita that follows a similar story but using that system's touch screens and camera.
