Here at the Destructoid office we've always joked that someone would take Wii motion control too far and make a hair cutting game. We joked that it would be called "Cut That Sh*t!" or something similar. And now it's really happening.
The Redken brand of salon cosmetics teamed up with publisher Little Orbit to make Busy Scissors, a hairstyling simulation for the Wii and DS.In it you'll cut, color, blow dry and shampoo hair, working to make special clientele happy. There's 25 hairstyles, 20 minigames and lots of product placement. The press release goes on about the hair detail:
Manifest Oranj, the game’s developer, spent months working with industry experts to emulate the real hair styles used in the game. Each salon technique was demonstrated and filmed by the team, before it was re-created in 3D and designed as a mini-game
The company is ramping up to show the game off to the public at Gamescom later this month. We'll make sure our news team there gives it a try.
