Film director Guillermo del Toro unveiled ‘Insane,’ his latest videogame project on Spike’s VGA 2010 awards show. Developed by Volition and published by THQ, the gritty video is full of ominous tentacles and suggested violence with a striking image of a needle that’s uncomfortably closed to someone’s eyeball.
“For years, the marriage of videogames and movies has been, frankly, full of domestic violence… because of the stubbornness of an industry that doesn’t allow to conceive of a videogame as anything other than an ancillary product,” said del Toro before introducing Insane. If you’ve ever been disappointed by a game based on a movie, you’ll understand where del Toro is coming from.

“I’m a gamer. I was born with a controller in my hand and a giant chicken quesadilla in the other. I promise to bring you visually stunning worlds, one-of-a-kind characters, and hopefully, you’ll shit your pants,” joked del Toro.
