Clock Tower's Hifumi Kōno, Ju-on/The Grudge's Takashi Shimizu's game met Kickstarter goal last year

Playism began streaming a trailer for Clock Tower game developer Hifumi Kōno and Ju-on/The Grudge film director Takashi Shimizu's Project Scissors: NightCry point-and-click horror game on Tuesday. The trailer reveals that the game will launch for PC via Playism and Steam this spring.

The creators successfully ran a Kickstarter last year to raise US$314,771 for the PC version of the game. The game was already slated for PlayStation Vita, smartphones, and tablets. The PC version's Kickstarter also raised funds to enhance the game's graphics.

The story of the game is set aboard a luxury ocean liner. In this enclosed space with no escape routes, the first of a string of brutal murders occurs. As the list of victims grows with no end in sight, the player must attempt to survive.

Kōno announced this new horror game project at Tokyo Game Show 2014's Indie Stream Festival. His independent studio Nude Maker is developing the game, Masahiro Itō (Silent Hill's "Red Pyramid Thing" and "Bubble Head Nurse") is designing the creatures, and Kiyoshi Arai (Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn) is serving as art director. Nobuko Toda (Metal Gear Solid) is in charge of sound and is composing the music with Michiru Yamane (Castlevania: Bloodlines).

Kōno stated that the 3D point-and-click adventure game will be the spiritual successor to his earlier Clock Tower game franchise.
