The Tearaway team are incredibly busy at the moment because E3 is right around the corner, so we’re spending every waking second preparing for that, and trying to make sure the game is in every way as special as it can be! I say every waking second, but to be honest there has been the occasional break for a slice of cake and a nice cup of tea. You can’t expect us to work with no cake breaks, that would be madness!
Most recently we’ve been working on the start of the game, where you’ll first begin your journey along with your new messenger friend. The first area that you’ll get to play with iota or atoi is called Valleyfold. It’s a green and pleasant land that draws its inspiration from the English Countryside, and the great wealth of folklore that surrounds it. You’ll wander through great standing stones and travel to a humongous apple orchard, to take place in the wassailing ritual that will help bring in the apple harvest. You’ll see more of Valleyfold over the coming weeks as we begin to show it off to the press, in the meantime though here are some screenshots to delight the eyes!
But wait! Just when you thought the blog post was over, we went and snuck in some exciting news – We’re delighted to announce details on the magnificent and exclusive bonus content you’ll get for pre-ordering your copy of Tearaway!
