The lights are on
Previous reports claiming that Del Toro had already lined up a new publisher for his survival horror game proved premature.
Speaking to the Toronto Sun about the Insane trilogy, which THQ cancelled last year, the critically acclaimed film director said his ambitious video game project is still being pitched to major players in the game industry.
"We are in talks with a very, very big company," he said. "I can’t say who, but it’s one of the big ones. They really responded to the game, they responded to what we were trying. Some of the devices of the game I need to update, because now I’ve seen them in other games that just came out. That always happens. But the principle we’re trying to do with the game is to make it a really immersive narrative experience. It’s still a really challenging proposal.”
Where, if anywhere, do you think this project will land?
