At the Indie Stream event at the Tokyo Game Show this year, a title called Project Scissors was announced, helmed by game designer Hifumi Kouno (Clock Tower director), creative designer Masahiro Ito (Silent Hill, pyramid head and nurses), and Takashi Shimizu (directed the Juon films). For those who don’t know, Clock Tower was a series of point-and-click survival horror games, where the main enemy chases you tries to kill you with a giant pair of scissors, and your objective is to escape and hide.

Project Scissors is the spiritual successor to Clock Tower, and has been announced for PlayStation Vita, iOS and Android devices. However, as the game is being developed with the Unity Pro engine, there is a possibility that the game will also be made available on PS4 and PS3 at some point in the future.
