Tearaway undoubtedly looks like a fantastic PS Vita game, one that combines flexible papercraft with the hardware of that handheld. But could it ever be accurately ported over to the PS4? Sort of, actually. The first thing you have to do according to developer Media Molecule, is not port it at all.
Instead, you’ve got to rework it entirely for that console, taking advantage of that hardware and its controller.
That’s some pretty funky stuff, and I dig how this is the one game that makes using the PlayStation 4 controller light actually worthwhile. That, and it’s completely adorable.
