Inception: Dream Within a Game Within a Dream?

Inception is one of the best films out of Hollywood in years. But the dream is not over yet.

Director Christopher Nolan revealed to the press in Rome during the film's Italian launch that there are plans for a videogame tie-in.

"We are looking at doing is developing a videogame based on the world of the film, which has all kinds of ideas that you can't fit into a feature film," Nolan said, quoted by Variety. "That's something we've been talking about and are looking at doing long term, in a couple of years."

"I did always intend for this film to give a mass audience a really entertaining experience," he added. "But my fear with the film was always that it would be misinterpreted as being overly cerebral or puzzle-like."

We're intrigued at the possibility of any sort of Inception-related content, but hopefully it won't turn into another "Matrix-universe."

    Would it play like eXistenZ
    Hey, why not just make a new movie out of the game, that came from a movie. We can get Uwe Boll to direct.

    I think it will be pretty tough to make the game as innovative as the movie and still be fun. Maybe try to go with the 007 Goldeneye "play the movie" style and keep it simple?

    Sounds interesting. World within a world within a a game would be awesome but I think I'd get tied of it really quickly.

    Might work as the type of game you play for a couple weeks, then sell/give away

    coldmastWould it play like eXistenZGreat movie. :)

    @inception game, well, I don't think it would be a good idea. 99% of the games that comes from movies are crap, at least.

    I could imagine a really innovative game based of the premise of the film that, if done right, could be a success. Then again... I've thought that about other movie based games and they're always terrible, just thrown together to cash in on the movie's success. Maybe this'll be one of those rare exceptions.
