Quoth Cthulhu: inSANE talk from Guillermo del Toro...

MTV spoke with Guillermo del Toro recently, about his other Lovecraftian project, inSANE (a video game he is developing with THQ and Volition), and he had this to say...

"We've been working for a year. We have two or three more years to go. It's huge. I'm learning a lot. I'm going in with a really, really modest 'I'm learning' approach. I'm a huge gamer but going into constructing it, you have to be respectful of the medium. I'm learning a lot. Talking about the storyline for weeks. We've been designing the creatures, which are obscenely fun and unique. You haven't seen them ever."

"We had to build a sandbox, so we designed all the architecture already. We're developing in Champaign, Illinois, so it's a very short trip from Toronto, so I don't have much weekends. My life is pretty much 24/7 work, but we're giving it the proper attention. We've spent an inordinate amount of time into that project. It's because it's worth it, I think. You learn more, as a narrator, for this medium, than I ever expected."

"It's Lovecraftian, it's really weird, but it's Lovecraftian in a very sick way, which I like. It's truly, truly entertaining. Full of action, but also a very shocking game. And Guy Davis and Francisco [Ruis Velasco]. Guy Davis, to me, is one of the best monster designers alive right now."
