Insane (Guillermo Del Toro)
« on: November 18, 2011, 11:39:30 am »
Whoa, this dude has some visions. This trailer alone is nightmarish and it doesn't even show anything about game play.

Del Toro did speak at length on inSane, a video game heís developing with THQ and Volition.  Up until pre-production began on Pacific Rim, Del Toro says he was working directly with the developers, ďand every week we have a conference [call] where we exchange ideas about the design, the gameplay, about the models.Ē  He also elaborated about whatís learning about video games as a storytelling medium:
I came to videogame development with a lot of humility because I didnít want to come in with the attitude of, ďOh I know how to make movies, therefore I know how to make videogames,Ē which is a big mistake. I came in trying to learn a new medium because I think itís going to be very useful for me as a storyteller.
With a videogame, you donít have to solve one screenplay, you have to solve 20 screenplays, because you are giving the player the illusion of free will. If the character kills another character or destroys a building, the game goes one way; if the character doesnít, it goes another. It keeps you very nimble.
I think thatís the biggest, and the most fun, lesson Iíve been getting. Weíre being really, really nasty in the game. Weíre really trying a lot of stuff that I donít think would even fly in the movies. Itís still two-and-a-half or three years away, though, because videogame development is so long.
The announcement trailer (which you can check out below) says the game is due out in 2013, so in two years weíll be getting a double-dose of Del Toro since Pacific Rim is set for May 10, 2013.

THQ for me has put out 1 disappointment after another. Hopefully they can do a good job with this.
