Christopher Nolan: Inception Video Game Could Become Reality

Ever since Inception hit theaters in July and inspired a sea of memes, scads of convoluted theories, and countless “we need to go deeper” jokes, countless nerds have yearned for an Inception video game, even as the prospect of a bungled gaming cash-in has filled them with dread. Now, the film’s director, Christopher Nolan, has said that an Inception game could be in the works.

Variety:

As for “Inception” spinoffs, Nolan said “one thing 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.”

“That’s something we’ve been talking about and are looking at doing long-term, in a couple of years.”

On the one hand: As much as we loved Inception, “a couple years” could be a long time, and the memory of the film could be somewhat dim by that point. On the other: At least they’re not just doing a sloppy cash-in for this holiday seasons, and as CVG argued a while back, Inception could lend itself well to gaming if handled well. “Ideas that you can’t fit into a feature film” seems as earnest a starting point for an Inception gaming adaptation as we might hope for, though that adaptation, if it happens at all, is still a ways away.
