Insane, the upcoming horror title from Volition and filmmaker Guillermo Del Toro, looks to be going against genre tradition a bit. In an interview with MTV Multiplayer, Del Toro described the game as an “obscenely fun and unique” sandbox game, one that is very “Lovecraftian in a very sick way.” A lot of these components are coming to fruition with the help of Guy Davis, creature designer for the game and Del Toro collaborator through Hellboy.

“We’ve been working for a year. We have two or three more years to go. It’s huge. I’m learning a lot. I’m going in with a really, really modest ‘I’m learning’ approach.” Del Toro explained, “I’m a huge gamer but going into constructing it, you have to be respectful of the medium. I’m learning a lot. Talking about the storyline for weeks. We’ve been designing the creatures, which are obscenely fun and unique. You haven’t seen them ever.”

  1. I like Del Torro’s mentality, hopefully his team can pick up the slack in the programming department, but I’m interested in his attempt at interactive storytelling.

    1. I’ve only heard and read one thing about this game since it was announced, I hope it’s good, I think Del Toro’s a great director I love the Hellboy and Blade films, they’re very cool.
