Director Guillermo del Toro's Insane, aka inSane, was an unfortunate casualty of THQ's financial woes. The game, which was revealed at the 2010 Spike Video Game Awards, was canceled last August and the rights to the IP were handed back to del Toro. Since then, he's been shopping it around to other developers; it appears that his quest is almost at an end.
“We are in talks with a very, very big company,” del Toro told the Toronto Sun. “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.”
He goes on to say that he’ll need to tweak his “really immersive and narrative experience” due to recent games doing what he’d planned to do with the title.
So, who will take on the project? Some speculate that it will be Valve due to del Toro making use of Portal’s GlaDOS in his latest film, Pacific Rim. I don’t believe there’s more of a connection than that, though. Who do you think would give it a good home?
