I’m sure a few of you will remember Insane, what was meant to be a trilogy of games from Hellboy director Guillermo Del Toro originally announced at the 2010 VGA’s. Almost two years later, development of the series got the axe by THQ but Del Toro is “not giving up on Insane”.
During a panel at New York Comic-Con, del Toro stated that he is currently looking for a new development partner for the trilogy that was meant to make its debut in 2013.
In an interview with Kotaku, the director stated that “The game was cut months ago, and now we are talking to developers,” before commenting that “When some thing doesn’t happen in one way, I just continue to pursue it in another way. I’m not giving up on Insane, it’s truly beautiful.”
After the title was announced in 2010, it was picked up by THQ to be developed by Volition Inc of Saints Row fame. THQ then announced in August 2012 that they had cancelled the title and that the rights had returned to Del Toro.
So who has Del Toro been pitching his psychological horror/torture type game to? Well, pretty much everyone, but his ideal candidate for a dream partner is Valve. Go big or go home, right?
