Lars Von Trier's Antichrist getting the game treatment

0

Antichrist, Danish director Lars Von Trier's newest film, hit Cannes this year and divided critics more than two rival console fanboys arguing over which system should be able to use the only outlet left in the house. Some thought it was a stroke of disturbing genius and others just found it disturbing. I'll toss out a few key words for those you haven't seen it: torture, sexual abuse, demented talking animals, depression and self inflicted genital mutilation. If that doesn't sound the like the subject of a great videogame... wait, genital mutilation on one's own genitals?

If you're, uhhh, still interested then developer Zentropa is the place to be. They've acquired the gaming rights to the film and are in the process of developing a game based on it. Eden, which the game will be called after the cabin in the film that a couple retreats to after the death of their son makes the husband attempt to treat his own wife's serious depression, will be a first-person thriller/adventure game for the PC that is attempting to be a "nightmare version of Myst." Players will have to confront their darkest fears in the game, and even though the game will not follow the film's plot it appears that leading man Willem DaFoe will be lending his voice. 

If you haven't seen the film yet, it is seriously messed up. Like "self-inflicted genital mutilation seems like a good idea" messed up. One can only imagine the game that will come out of it. One thing is for sure; it won't be showing up in Germany.
