Better Than Trophies
People like achievements, but they’re inherently valueless due to their intangibility. No matter how many you unlock or how many games you achieve 100% completion in, you’ll never be able to physically hold and appreciate a memento of your time spent with a game. Tearaway aims to change this by allowing players to earn and print out special patterns for a build-your-own papercraft experience.
At the event held in Los Angeles, we got a glimpse at a few examples of what the game will offer including an elk the size of a small cat and a wearable mask featuring the likeness of the game’s wendigo monsters. This form of reward adds some uncommon physicality to the rewards, plus they look like a great deal of fun to build.
