Tearaway story trailer explains the papercraft premise

In the world of Tearaway, explains this story trailer for Media Molecule's PS Vita exclusive, there exist Messengers, beings who carry a letter inside their envelope-shaped heads.

The player controls one of these Messengers as he or she tries to complete the assigned courier task and deliver the letter to its recipient: you, the player, "the person who's holding their whole world in your hands."

The game has a strong folk influence, says Kenny Young, the game's head of audio, particularly as it relates to how stories change when told from person to person.

Tearaway hits PS Vita on Nov. 22.
