‘Clock Tower’ Successor ‘NightCry’ Launches Kickstarter

A few weeks ago, developer Playism Games revealed NightCry (formerly known to us as Project Scissors) through an eerie live-action trailer, directed by Takashi Shimizu (Ju-On, The Grudge). The game has some serious names attached to it, including Clock Tower series creator Hifumi Kono and Pyramid Head creator Masahiro Ito.

NightCry is a spiritual successor to the long-dormant Clock Tower series that returns the series to its roots in 3D point-and-click adventure style gameplay. Like so many other passion projects, Playism will require a substantial amount of funds to realize it.

If they’re successful in raising $300,000, the game will come to mobile and PC, with other platforms potentially to follow.

    Has the whole twelve minute short film been posted yet?

    Eh, I’m kind of disappointed. I won’t spoil anything, but there is a lot of imagery that just seems to be copied and pasted from other franchises (one in particular). I’d like to know what everyone else’s thoughts about it are.

    Can we get a Clock Tower 4 instead……please?
