I’m hesitant to be excited about the announcement that Insane, Guillermo Del Toro’s collaboration with THQ, will be a trilogy. The reason for this hesitation is we’ve all been burned by premature reveals like these. If you look at the industry’s past, games that are announced as trilogies tend to have things go horribly wrong. Too Human failed in every way, Beyond Good & Evil flopped commercially, we still haven’t gotten our Half-Life 2: Episode 3 and Advent Rising wasn’t nearly as good as many of us hoped.
None of that means Guillermo Del Toro’s recently revealed action horror game will flop and I sincerely hope it blows all our minds and sells more units than Call of Duty: Black Ops. Check past the jump for the game’s new trailer, just in case you missed it.
Unveiled at the Spike VGAs over the weekend, the trailer below shows absolutely nothing yet still manages to give me a warm feeling in my pants. We know it won’t be out until sometime in 2013 and it has something to do with H.P. Lovecraft’s work (think Cthulu).
If anything this is proof that Guillermo has faith in this new IP, since he’s investing in an entire series rather than a single game. We won’t know how great it is until we see a little more of the game, but Guillermo’s statement that he wishes to “take players to a place they have never seen before, where every single action makes them question their own senses of morality and reality” sounds pretty swell.
