The companion app works using the official PlayStation app, which can be download for free from app stores on smart phones and tablets. The Tearaway Unfolded Companion App can also be used on the PS4 link "second-screen" function using a PS Vita.
To demonstrate the fun and new ways players will be able to interact with the game, there is an exciting new video below from Media Molecule demonstrating the full functionality.
Key features to guide interaction with the exquisite papery world include:
• The trusty cutting mat – one of the main ways to let your creative juices flow and draw whatever your heart desires. Draw a heart or flower, hit the stamp icon and your creation will be floating through the skies of the game.
• Using the camera of your chosen device, take photos of the real world and import them onto the cutting mat. The imported photos can then be used to texturise the game.
• The Messenger customisation screen lets you personalise your messenger to create new decorations and costumes...or even a beard!
• Tearaway Unfolded is context sensitive, meaning you can change what the messenger looks like during real time whilst your friends are playing.
Tearaway Unfolded can now be pre-ordered via the PlayStation store, and includes the bonus Crafted Edition loaded with exclusive costumes and decorations inspired by some of PlayStation's most popular titles.
