Like a shambling horror in one of his own films, light is slowly being shed on Guillermo Del Toro's upcoming project with THQ, Insane. In an interview with MTV, the filmmaker turned game creator revealed that Insane will be a sandbox game, which makes sense given developer Volition's pedigree. 
He also offered hints about exactly what kind of horror to expect, noting that Insane is "Lovecraftian in a very sick way." He added that the game's creatures are "obscenely fun and unique," which they should be, given they're being designed by Guy Davis. Davis is best known for his work on the Hellboy and B.P.R.D. comics, both of which have a Lovecraftian bent. The art department will also be bolstered by Francisco Ruis Velasco, who worked on Hellboy 2: The Golden Army.

Volition's open-world shenanigans with Lovecraftian designs by Del Toro and his Hellboy people? I can't wait to see this game in action.

Sounds like a complete clusterfuck, but I suppose we'll have to wait and see.

If it really is as Lovecraftian as he claims it to be the player will go insane upon loading the disc.

So it's going more towards the campy end of the spectrum?
