Media Molecule confirms it's working on another 'scary' but 'exhilarating' project

Media Molecule co-founder Alex Evans has confirmed that it's working on a project other than its upcoming PS Vita title Tearaway, saying the project is "scary, but it's exhilarating" in a recent interview with Edge.

Evans teased at the possibility of the side project at Gamescom, telling Polygon that only 15 of the studio's 47 employees were working on Tearaway — leaving 32 left over to "make tea." At the time, the company was also hiring more devs to work on "brand new IPs, even more ambitious than LBP was when it was conceived 6 years ago."

"As a studio, we want to keep everything fresh," Evans told Edge (via CVG). We don't want to be known as just the LittleBigPlanet studio, much as we love that. I think of Media Molecule more as creative gaming.

"For Tearaway, we've imagined creative gaming within a much more gamey game. For the R&D project, it's creative gaming; go back to those two words and completely reimagine how people can create. It's scary, but it's exhilarating."
