Del Toro's Insane to be a sandbox game, Guy Davis doing creature designs


Like a shambling horror in one of his own films, Guillermo Del Toro's upcoming project with THQ, Insane, is slowly creeping into the light. In an interview with MTV, the filmmaker turned game creator revealed that Insane will be a sandbox game, which makes sense given developer Volition's pedigree (Red Faction, Saints Row).

He also offered hints about exactly what kind of horror to expect, noting that Insane is "Lovecraftian in a very sick way." He added that the game's creatures are "obscenely fun and unique," which they should be, given they're being designed by Guy Davis. Davis is best known for his work on the Hellboy and B.P.R.D. comics, both of which have a Lovecraftian bent. The art department will also be bolstered by Francisco Ruis Velasco, who worked on Hellboy 2: The Golden Army.

The first planned installment of Insane will (hopefully) begin terrifying gamers in 2013.
