The cult hit horror series Clock Tower has a spiritual successor in the works, and it's coming to iOS. NightCry is an upcoming survival-horror game being developed by Nude Maker, a studio comprised of former veterans of Human Entertainment, who helped create the original horror series back before Human Entertainment closed down in 2000. The studio has released a live-action teaser of the game, formerly known as Project Scissors, which is directed by Takashi Shimizu, creator of The Grudge.

The Clock Tower series is particularly memorable for its horrifying Scissorman villains, and the teaser certainly teases that scissors will be involved – if the Project Scissors name wasn't enough to tease that a Scissorman-type villain would be involved. It'll be interesting to see how this one turns out. The game is planned for Vita along with iOS and Android, which could mean that this is a premium-priced title. And hey, survival horror has a paying audience with the Five Nights at Freddy's [$2.99] series doing gangbusters. But what would be scarier than seeing a giant scissor-wielding maniac, and getting an IAP prompt that could possibly save you? Would you have the guts to say no?

    I'm particularly fond of the fact that the video YouTube wanted me to watch after watching the preview was that horrid Nicki Minaj video. Classic.

    This could be good!

    Although the teaser makes it seem like they are making a movie, rather than a game, lol.

    Huge fan of Clock Tower on the PSX, very under appreciated game. The use of music in that game is still very memorable to me, it was used sparingly but it made the experience very tense. If NightCry can deliver what Clock Tower had then for me it would be a survival horror king on iOS.

    I was there at the Tokyo Game Show for the exclusive, private announcement of Project Scissors. Even submitted the news to TA. In the end, nobody seemed interested in running with it...until now.

    Oh well.

    A lot of people are complaining about the teaser trailer been live action rather than a game, thinking a it's a movie instead. In my opinion I wished they put some gameplay into the trailer. Even just a few seconds would have been nice.

    Still interested in getting the game.
