Clock Tower successor Project Scissors looks scary


Japanese horror is best horror

Nude Maker, a Japanese studio helmed by Clock Tower creator Hifumi Kono, has shared the debut trailer for its upcoming horror game, Project Scissors: NightCry.

NightCry, revealed at Tokyo Game Show last September, is a spiritual successor to Clock Tower, a series of survival horror point-and-click adventure games made by now-defunct publisher Human Entertainment. It's in development for PlayStation Vita and mobile devices.

Sadly, it's not gameplay, but this thirty second live action teaser put together by Japanese filmmaker Takashi Shimizu, the director behind horror films Ju-On and The Grudgeshould give you some idea about the vibe and atmosphere NightCry endeavors to convey.

The experience is set aboard a luxury cruise liner, where a series of gruesome murders transpire while the boat is at sea. After the ship's crew is killed, the adrift vessel becomes a prison for the remaining passengers, who must solve the mystery as they try to survive.

Playism promises more details from the development team by the end of January.
