Inception to be adapted as a video game

Usually movie to video game adaptations leaves me cold but this latest news from The Hollywood Reporter that Inception is to become a video has me intrigued.

“[What] we are looking at doing is developing a video game based on the world of the film, which has all kinds of ideas that you can’t fit into a feature film,” Nolan said at a press conference Rome to promote the movie, which is due to open in Italy. “That’s something we’ve been talking about and are looking at doing long term, in a couple of years.” -HWR via Variety

I could be wrong but Nolan doesn’t really strike me as the kind of bloke who would let himself get involved with such a project if he didn’t think there was mileage in it.

I think the premise of Inception, if handled right, would make for a fantastic video game. The advantage here is that  a lot of game to movie adaptations fall down because they’re rushed through the development cycle so they can be out in time to capitalize on the film’s release. In this case the film is already out so hopefully the developers, along with Nolan can take their time and give us gamers a game worthy of such a great film.

A video game is a great idea but I really think an Inception TV series could work really well.
