Titled Project Scissors, the new game is set aboard a luxury cruise liner in the middle of the ocean. But as the ship sails, a series of gruesome and mysterious murders begin to take place, including the ship’s crew, and the ship is soon adrift at sea. As a passenger trapped on the ship, the player will be tasked with solving the murder mystery to ensure both their survival and that of the “innocent” passengers.
