Tearaway is a PlayStation Vita game, developed by Media Molecule and published by Sony Computer Entertainment. The player controls Iota or Atoi, who must advance through stages. They must do this with your help, as you are able to manipulate the surrounding world. The environment is constructed with flat, 2D paper which is constructed to make 3D objects and characters. The player must alter the surrounding environment by the use of the PS Vita's touch pad. By tapping the rear touch panel players can poke through paper walls. Iota/Atoi carries an important letter inside of him/her, and the player must guide him/her to it's destination.
Iota is the male counterpart of Atoi and is one of the main protagonists of Tearaway and Tearaway Unfolded. He contains a special message within his envelope shaped head, and must deliver it.
Iota is a small letter that falls into the Tearaway world at the beginning of the game. Pieces of paper then surround him, and become parts of his body. This is when he wakes up, and the adventure begins.
