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.
