How Tearaway’s in-game photography works

image003

Tearaway is about going on an adventure. It’s a very personal journey between two people: you, and your new messenger friend. If you’re going on an adventure, you’re likely going to see lots of amazing things, and you’ll probably want to tell people about them. That’s why we gave iota and atoi their own cameras!

As soon as we put the camera into the game, the whole studio started documenting and sharing their journeys through the vibrant papery landscapes, and in addition to providing us with mementos, it was clear that it could be a great avenue for creativity too. If you know anything about us, you’ll know that’s something we can’t help but include in our games.

You’ll be awarded the camera early in the game, it comes with kit lens, with a nice depth of field, and you can get snapping straight away. To unlock new lenses and special filters, you’ll need to collect confetti; little colourful bits of paper you’ll see throughout the world. You can spend this confetti on numerous things, including camera items.

There are five additional lenses to collect, each brings something different. There’s the Macro lens for close-ups, a zoom lens for capturing distant scenes, a high speed lens for fast moving objects, a wide angle for capturing more of the scene, and finally, the Quantum Lens, for capturing photos of the real world using the PS Vita’s front and rear cameras.

On top of the different lenses, you can unlock a set of filters help you get super arty. These filters could be warming or, cooling, put everything into negative or turn a scene black and white… There are 15 filters in total, all with their own special effects and properties.

Once you’ve taken a snap you’re particularly proud of, you can share it with your friends via Facebook or Twitter, or with the world at large via our Tearaway community website. We can’t wait to see what you guys manage to capture and share come 22nd November!
