Tearaway Unfolded – Our papery roundup of 2016!

Today we wanted to take a look back at 2016 and share some of our favourite papery moments from the world of Tearaway Unfolded. Even though our team have been hard at work on Dreams all year, it's still been a really exciting time for our papery adventure game; from 1st birthday celebrations to winning awards, our Messengers have had plenty to smile about. So get your confetti out folks and join us as we highlight our best and most memorable moments from Tearaway Unfolded in 2016!

1st Birthday!

Tearaway Unfolded celebrated its 1st birthday on September the 8th this year and we were completely overwhelmed by all the messages of love and celebration that we received, it was the best!


It wouldn't be right to talk about Tearaway Unfolded without mentioning our favourite critters, the squirrels! We celebrated their greatness with a whole week of appreciation :)

Our most hard core squirrel prize definitely has to go to Apparently Shane for his daredevil antics!


This year Tearaway Unfolded won a TIGA Award for Best Visual Design which was such a special and proud moment for the whole team. We had a wonderful time at the TIGA Awards and it was a great night celebrating with so many of our developer friends <3

It's always a joy to read articles about our games, and this year brought with it some really fantastic, in-depth pieces about Tearaway Unfolded. Here's a small selection of our favourites:

There is just nothing as rewarding as unlocking something in game and then having the ability to bring it to life in the real world. This is something that no game has done before.

Marco Cocomello, 'Use a Video Game to get your Kids into Papercrafting' - Tech Girl

The diverse imagination released into this game is one of the best examples of developers releasing their full creativity and imagination on a game that has evidently had alot of love and care put into it.

Bethany Ryan, 'Masters of creativity: Game Artstyle done right' - DoubleUpGaming

With such a unique way of creating it, I believe this game holds the perfect opportunity to inspire a future generation of game developers wanting to let their imaginations run wild.
