Former THQer Wants to Save Guillermo del Toro’s InSane
One of the more interesting projects to meet the headsman’s axe amid THQ’s bankruptcy was Guillermo del Toro’s Lovecraftian horror game, InSane. But THQ’s former core games boss, Danny Bilson, says he has a plan to pull InSane from the mountains of madness and back into the light.
In an interview with VG24/7, Bilson sheds light on some of THQ’s unfinished projects, including InSane, which was announced way back in 2010 as an ambitious trilogy that would “redefine storytelling” in video games. THQ cut the project in 2012 as it struggled to stay afloat, and while del Toro retained the rights and has stated he still wants to finish it with a new publisher, InSane has yet to find a new home.
Enter Bilson, who told VG24/7 he’ll be chatting with del Toro soon about jump starting InSane.
“I haven’t heard that he’s doing anything with it yet, although I do have an idea how to revive it, and I’m gonna speak to him soon,” Bilson said.
“As much as I can tell you about it is that it was an action adventure game with really great environments, story and characters, and it was period and very Lovecraftian. I don’t wanna spoil it, in the hope that Guillermo wants to go further with it.”
As a fan of del Toro’s work and games that tell a great story, here’s to hoping Bilson’s plan works.
