On this bonus episode, we're telling the full story behind the development of THQ and Volition's collaboration with the acclaimed film director Guillermo del Toro. We're joined by three former Volition developers who worked extensively on the game: Insane's art director Matt Flegel, lead writer Steve Jaros (now at Valve), and senior producer/creative director&nbsp;Jacques Hennequet.</p> <p>Up until this point, all we knew about the mysterious project announced in 2010 was the<a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EsWIdD8hkGM"> ambiguous teaser trailer</a> and the fact that the project was canceled when THQ went bankrupt.
