Happy Halloween!

2013October 27th

The Autumn is upon us, and it seems appropriate that as the leaves outside turn golden, so do does Tearaway. Just like the trees outside our studio, we’re not quite there yet, not fully Gold, we are well on the road to releasing, with only a few more weeks until November 22nd!

The best part of Autumn is Halloween (amiright?) and we thought we’d celebrate the game’s imminent release, and this golden season, with a Halloween themed papercraft plan for you all to decorate your homes with at this most creepy of times!

A little way into playing Tearaway, you’ll discover you need a pumpkin to scare off some rowdy crows. Once you find one, you’ll be asked to give it a scary voice, using the PS Vita’s mic, and also a spooky face, which you can make by cutting out virtual paper shapes. You’ll also collect a papercraft plan of the pumpkin, just one of many than you’ll be able to collect and make as you play through Tearaway.

Tearaway’s lead designer Rex Crowle has given the Pumpkin papercraft plan a spooky makeover, and we’d like you to have it now!
You can download the papercraft plan here!

Please enjoy making this pumpkin, and please send pictures of your creations to us on twitter: @tearawaygame.
Feel free to modify it as you wish!

Happy Halloween!

Halloween Treats: Cakepops!

2012October 31st

it’s Halloween, which means one thing: treats! To celebrate this day of treats, Tess has rustled up these spooky cakepops for us to nom upon, why not have a go at making them yourself?


Things you’ll need

  • Time -  Do not underestimate the amount of time these will take!
  • Cake (homemade or shop bought) can be flavour of your choice
  • Buttercream (homemade or shop bought)
  • Candy Melts by Wilton (or look in the baking section of the supermarket for their coloured/flavoured buttons) in a colour of your choice
  • Lollipop sticks
  • A microwave safe bowl, at least 3 inches deep (I used a coffee mug)
  • A cake pop stand, or a block of Styrofoam will do
  • Decorations (the limit is your imagination!)
  • A really useful book is Cake-Pops by Angie Dudley. There’s even a video you can watch on that Amazon Link!

...but crooked smiles all around this Hallows eve.

A few of the molecules spent their lunchtime today hacking at fruit with sharp knives. What fun!

If you’re carving your own pumpkin, or turnip*, then please be careful! The first aid box was out in force at Media Molecule towers this afternoon - if you look closely you’ll see that some of the pumpkins have more of a reddish tinge to them than others…



* When I were’t lad we’d carve our lanterns out of turnips or swedes (rutabaga). Not only could pumpkins not be bought for love nor money in the Land of Scots in the early ‘80s, but this tradition actually pre-dates the carving of pumpkins. So if you want to be authentically old-skool, grab a turnip. Unfortunately you’ll need to have the dexterity, strength and perseverance of a small mountain goat if you wish to scoop out the hardened innards of a turnip. Good luck with that li’l project…
