About Running with Scissors

Running with Scissors was founded in Tucson, AZ in 1996 and now operates from all across the world. The independent video game studio develops and publishes outrageous games just for the hell of it. The company’s goal is to make action-packed games that are fun, funny, and possibly even politically correct. RWS’ games feature wonderfully excessive amounts of violence, however, the company is not in favour of real-life violence and believes it’s a hell of a lot better to act out your frustrations in video games rather than against your fellow man.
