Giant scissors are your controller in this quirky first-person action game

Giant scissors are your controller in this quirky first-person action game
From Engadget - March 21, 2018

Once you get going, your whole goal in the narrative is to kill these four-legged creatures that look like they are made out of rope with your, well, scissors. You are inside what looks like a haunted house, with bright, purple portals on each floor that your enemies crawl out of. As you get rid of them, you can walk up the stairs and start a different level. The best part about Scissors the that than is that the big ol' snips you have in your hands are not just a prop -- you actually have to make a cutting motion to kill the monsters who are trying to attack you.

It took me a few minutes to figure out the mechanics, but once that happened those weird creatures never stood a chance. I do think the game should come with a warning though because it's borderline dangerous and if you are not careful, you could smash someone in your vicinity pretty hard with the scissors. Especially as you are being attacked in the game and you are trying to make cutting motions in a speedy manner. That's when you know a first-person action game has become too real.
