Since last year, Guillermo del Toro has been working with THQ and Volition on inSANE, a "Lovecraftian" sandbox-style video game. During a recent interview, Guillermo del Toro provided a status update.

"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."

"It's Lovecraftian, it's really weird, but it's Lovecraftian in a very sick way, which I like. It's truely, truely 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."

Volition is known for developing the Saints Row and Red Faction series and is currently working on a third Saints Row game, along with inSANE, and an unannounced project. Given the amount of development time still required, we don't expect to see too much on this game until next year. inSANE is due out in 2013 and should be available on all major gaming platforms.
