Spike VGA 2010 Reveals Guillermo Del Toro’s Insane

Spike VGA 2010 Reveals Guillermo Del Toro’s Insane

We’ve been waiting for official confirmation, and the VGA’s finally brought it. Guillermo Del Toro – celebrated director of scary-ass films like Pan’s Labyrinth and Devil’s Backbone (not to mention producing Spain’s sleeper hit The Orphanage – shudder) – is working with THQ and Volition to bring us Insane. And by bring us, I may very well mean drive us – to be honest, with Del Toro anything is possible.

As you might expect this early on in the game, the video tells us next to nothing about anything. We have some blurry, black-and-white images of something undefined, a screaming, terrorised soundtrack and … well, that’s pretty much it. Well, apart from this still I capped right at the end of movie:


Insane is currently scheduled for a 2013 release.

  1. Honestly, 2013?! What’s the point? I’d rather they’d waited until next years awards to reveal this.

    Still, great to see A-List Hollywood talent contributing to the gaming industry in such a way. I do love gaming horrors, so excited to see more.

    • Heh – agree completely. But it has to be said, this is one of my favourite announcements coming out of the VGAs – so if nothing else, they have my attention for the next three years!

      I’m a HUGE Del Toro fan. If a game is even half as good as Pan’s Labyrinth, it’s going to be incredible. Fingers crossed!

      p.s. See what lengths I’ll go to to avoid revising?!

      • It’s one of mine as well. I adore Pan’s Labyrinth and I do think Del Torro is capable of producing an amazing game, I’ll just be grinding my teeth anxiously awaiting it.

        That said, VGA’s could have ended for me when they showed Batman and announced Skyrim and ME3. I doubt anything would have topped that for me.

  2. This game does look like something to watch! The needle going towards the eye reminds me of that scene from Zombie Flesh Eaters. SHUDDER, indeed.

    Del Toro is certainly a talent on the big screen, here’s hoping his venture into gaming will be half as successful!
