After receiving lots of feedback from fans the world over, the NightCry team has decided to create a PC version of the game and are asking their fans from around the world for their support in making it happen via the Project Scissors: NightCry Kickstarter campaign. Currently under development at Nude Maker Inc., directed by Hifumi Kono (Director of Clock Tower, Infinite Space, and Steel Battalion) and co-created by Takashi Shimizu (Director of Ju-On, and The Grudge), NightCry was initially announced at Tokyo Game Show 2014 as being for mobile platforms and the PlayStation® Vita.

In the game, players are invited aboard a cruise ship, where an evil presence has begun stalking and killing guests and crew alike, resulting in the ship being lost at sea. As the player, you are unarmed and unprepared to fight back against the horrible evil that stalks you. All you can do is run and hide while searching for clues that might lead to your survival. As a live action companion piece meant to expand upon the world and vision of NightCry, project co-creator Takashi Shimizu has created a short film that reveals another side of this dark world. You can view this short film and learn more about the Project Scissors: NightCry Kickstarter campaign from the following links:

In addition to Takashi Shimizu, Hifumi Kono is working with a wealth of incredible luminaries from the Japanese entertainment industry, including Kiyoshi Arai (Concept Art, Final Fantasy XII, XIV), Masahiro Ito (Creature Designer, Silent Hill series), and Nobuko Toda (Composer, Metal Gear Solid series, Halo 4 & 5). In addition, famed CG animation director Shinji Aramaki (Appleseed series, Halo Legends) will be serving as creative advisor. Also, for the first time since the game’s initial announcement, we’re happy to reveal that Michiru Yamane (Composer, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night) has joined the team to collaborate on the soundtrack.

Even though Yamane and Toda have a shared history at Konami Digital Entertainment, NightCry is the first time that they are collaborating together. With the help of the backers from Kickstarter, the NightCry team hopes to create a definitive version of the game for PC, with additional platforms being considered if the crowdfunding campaign exceeds expectations.
