Hitman writer’s Eden is based on Lars Von Trier film Antichrist

Hitman writer, Morten Iversen, is game director for Eden, the upcoming title based on Lars Von Trier’s latest film, Antichrist.

The film stars Willem Dafoe and is basically a very dark, violent film that contains sexually graphic scenes and genital mutilation. Yikes.

MTV had a chance to sit down with Iversen, who told the site that Von Trier is a fan of gaming, and thought creating one would be a good idea.

“Von Trier has been extremely fond of video games for ages, and has been an avid player of Alone in the Dark,” said Iverson. “He’s been circulating the idea internally…that making games would be a good idea.

“[The movie] goes against all the conventions of how you make games and what you can do in games. Dead kids, nudity, graphic violence. It will be a very controversial game, and it’ll be a game that doesn’t really compare with anything else.

“We don’t expect Wal-Mart to roll in crates of this and put it on their shelves. Absolutely not available at Wal-Mart.”

Iverson hopes Eden will be a downloadable title through Xbox Live and Steam and describes it as a “nightmarish version of Myst”, where the player will upload a profile, choosing their biggest phobias.

So, if you are afraid of clowns, you will be confronted with them in the game.

Sounds strange, but it’s doubtful any genital mutilation will be in the game. At least we hope not.

    Probably (hopefully) means the original. Hopefully, since the remake is pure shit.

    The movie culminates in a woman snipping off her bean with a pair of rusty scissors, and also has a bloke jizzing blood everywhere. And a talking fox. Plus the opening scene is a baby breaking its neck.

    This is going to be a weird game.

    … i liked … alone in the dark 4? … the new nightmare … hehe … i think this is great news … sounds like it will be a mixture of a psycho/horror movie and a videogame adventure … it´s about time that videogames become more arty … i liked the walmart statement as well …

    I’m terrified by really hot lesbians making out with each other.

    If they make a game about the anti crist then it should be a political game. I think they should do some reasch into it too.

    don’t forget the false prophet too. To be honest the anti christ might be a touchy subject for some people.

    by the way obama is NOT the anti christ. Obama is here to slow him down. The anti christ I think comes riding a white horse. I knoow he comes from some where in one of the countris of what was rome, You can’t stop him from coming.

    the world pretty much asked him to come

    the world wants peace.

    Titles like these are just using Controversy to sell the game. When you buy it two things will happen

    1) utter disgust for humanity
    2) Disappointed with 60$ worth of shit

    Its pretty sad that The company for Hitman bit it but the writer had nothing better to do then make a game about gore for the sake of Gore. If he wanted scary he would go after Lovecraft books not this garbage.
