Tearaway Unfolded offers same story as Vita, but with extra features


When we watched the Sony presentation at gamescom we were under the impression that Media Molecule's Tearaway Unfolded was a new game for PS4, but in fact it's not. Instead it's a retelling of the original with some added extra features.

"With Tearaway Unfolded, we wanted to put the world is inside your TV and have you interact with it using the unique inputs of the controller," wrote Media Molecule on its blog.

"It doesn't make sense for players to get up from the sofa, wander over to the TV and literally touch the world like they did in the PlayStation Vita version, but there are other ways you’ll be able to physically interact with the game instead. 

"From the comfort of your couch, you can swipe the touch pad to unleash great gusts of wind, and send them howling into the world to unfold rippling bridges or send enemies tumbling from cliffs! The power of wind can also be used to propel atoi through the skies in a paper plane, so you can explore the larger new world from above.

"We also use the controller in more surprising ways too! You can shine the controller’s light bar into the TV to light up dark and gloomy places, growing and transforming the scenery, and guiding atoi along her way. Your little messenger companion can also throw items and creatures out of your TV and into your controller, where you can listen to them rattling around, before sending them hurtling back into the world.

"Tearaway Unfolded will be a familiar story, but with new ways to play, new places to explore, and a world that looks really rather stunning on PS4."

What do you think of this news?



Here are some of the extra features listed:

- Unleash powerful gusts of wind to unfold rippling bridges, or send enemies tumbling off cliffs, with a well-timed swipe of the touch pad.


- Use the power of wind to propel your messenger through the skies in their paper plane and explore the world from above.

- Catch objects your messenger throws to you as they fly out of the screen into your wireless controller, where you can hear them rattling around, before sending them hurtling back into hard-to-reach places, or towards your hapless enemies.

-Shine the wireless controller’s light bar into the TV to illuminate dark and gloomy places, growing and transforming the scenery as you do, and guiding your companion along their way.

- Push and release the touch pad button to squash drum skins and spring your messenger up into the air or across platforms.

pains in the bums they are, i remember them saying the vita story wouldnt work on ps4 so theyre creating a new story for ps4, which tells me its a new story, see how long before the remastered comments come in lol

The way I interpreted it was it was the same game with new areas to explore due to the PS4 controller features so it depends how many new areas there are. If its only a couple then not great. I really enjoyed the Vita one so was tempted by this.

I only played the trial version on the Vita so it would still be new to me. If reasonably priced I'd consider getting it

Shopto have it up for £46 but I imagine that's a place holder

They also clarified elsewhere that at least half the game is completely new content(Presumably meaning new areas), and all existing content has been completely overhauled to incorporate the new gameplay mechnics. The only thing that's going to be genuinely the same here is the story elements, actual gameplay is a complete rework of the original.

REmake had a lot of new content and it was reworked. This isn't a typical lazy remake but it's a remake non the less

Yes, but you know what kevin is like, it's one rule for Sony and another for everyone else with him.

It's a "Unfolded" version of the Original game (Get it?)

" REmake had a lot of new content and it was reworked. This isn't a typical lazy remake but it's a remake non the less" - Of course. I don't disagree.

" Yes, but you know what kevin is like, it's one rule for Sony and another for everyone else with him." - Well, we can't all be such unwavering paragons of principles as you, Gloria. How's Child of Light btw?

Dull and tedious, a bit like one of your monologues.

He disappeared for months before when i ignored him, maybe if I ignore him again he'll crawl back under his rock again. I swear he only comes here to act like a dick so he can play the victim when people call him a dick.

"I'll need some plastic sheeting first" - Well, that's certainly not a creepy response or anything.
