Hellboy Director's 'Lovecraftian' Horror Game Debuts Next Month

Mexican movie director Guillermo del Toro is making a game with publisher THQ - according to del Toro, anyway - a project that we'll see next month when the "truly strange, geeky mix" of a horror game is revealed.

THQ's Danny Bilson reportedly let slip that Del Toro's project will be one of those games that gets screen time at the annual Spike TV Video Game Awards presentation. Joystiq reports that the title, developer and "all of that" will be revealed on Spike's game awards show.

Del Toro describes his game to MTV Multiplayer last month, saying, "It's... a very different type of horror game. It's not survival horror. It's truly a strange, geeky mix. It's a Lovecraftian thing. Let's leave it at that."

The director of Hellboy and Pan's Labyrinth is currently attached to an adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft's At the Mountains of Madness.

    Del Toro and Lovecraft in the same article is always good news. Can't wait.

    Guillermo del Toro + lovecraft..... that stokes my bagpipes big time.

    High hopes for this.

    I think I'll watch "In the Mouth of Madness" again. That movie rawrx!

      Yes! I think I'll watch that tonight!

    One of my favourite directors mixed with one of my favourite writers?
