InSANE trilogy still on the cards, del Toro keen on Valve

Friday, 12th October 2012 06:12 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Guillermo del Toro is still keen to create his three-game inSANE series, and has nominated Valve as his dream partner for the project.

In an interview with Kotaku, via Polygon, del Toro said he’s still actively chasing the project and is “talking to developers”.

“I’m not giving up on Insane. It’s truly beautiful,” he said.

Asked who he’s like to work with on the trilogy, del Toro said he is “a big fan” of Valve’s games – so much so that he’s cast Ellen McLain, voice of GLaDOS, in Pacific Rim.

Del Toro’s inSANE trilogy was to be developed by Volition Inc, but in its efforts to staunch an arterial money spray, the wounded publisher politely returned all rights to the famed cinematic creator.

At leats some conceptual work had been completed; del Toro described the games as “really, really nasty” and a kind of Lovecraftian sandbox. Although he described himself as a total newcomer to games, del Toro was said to be heavily involved in the development process, and keen to implement his dream features.

    Guillermo del Toro + Valve + Game Trilogy = Frhgwuh. That’s the definition I created for this circumstance and it’s positive.

    “At leats some conceptual –> At least some conceptual”

    That would be a cool collaboration right there. Valve with the money and the resources to do it right, even if only as a vanity project, and Guillermo with the vision. I like it…
