Japanese developer Nude Maker (yes, that’s the studio's real name), the creator of the classic horror-adventure franchise Clock Tower, has announced the development of a brand new horror franchise codenamed Project Scissor for the PlayStation Vita, iOS and Android devices. As the spiritual successor to the original Clock Tower, Project Scissors aims to deliver the ultimate horror game experience, promising to transport players to a world of primal fear, suspense and mystery. The new game will take place on a luxurious cruise liner situated in the middle of the ocean. After the occurrence of a series of gruesome and mysterious murders, including those of the crew, the ship is left crippled and adrift at sea, becoming an inescapable trap for the passengers. As one of those passengers, you will be tasked with solving the murder mystery to ensure your own survival, as well as that of the rest of the 'innocent' passengers. Masahiro Ito, the creature designer for the venerated Silent Hill franchise, has joined the project as the creature and prop designer. The development team also includes Takashi Shimizu -- the famed director of Ju-on film franchise and its Hollywood adaptation The Grudge -- as the creative producer, as well as other well-known talents in the Japanese gaming industry. According to Nude Maker, one of the main goals of Project Scissors is to develop the 'ultimate J-horror experience' and to prove that the Japanese video game industry and its indie spirit are still very much alive and kicking.
