Night Cry to launch Kickstarter for PC version

Nude Maker wants to bring Clock Tower successor to bigger screens.

Night Cry

Nude Maker is planning a Kickstarter campaign for a potential PC version of its upcoming Clock Tower spiritual successor Night Cry, studio CEO Hifumi Kouno told Polygon.

If the campaign fails, a PC version simply won’t be released. The game will be made for its previously announced PS Vita and mobile platforms regardless of the outcome, Hifumi said.

“Early on, I was concerned about playing a horror game on a smaller screen,” Kouno said. “Maybe a tablet would be different, but still it’s not a big screen. So yeah, I always wanted to bring it to the bigger screen. But at the same time, I had to think about the budget. That was one of the main factors; I had to limit it in order to keep it independent.”

Polygon got a first look at a work-in-progress version of the game, and Nude Maker confirmed it would feature multiple playable characters. The demo featured a ‘loud and confident’ female, who talks to employees on and explores the game’s cruise setting, before stumbling upon the Scissor Walker—Night Cry‘s version of Clock Tower‘s Scissorman.
