“Gotham By Gaslight” Prototype Video
So you’ve played the Batman:Arkham series by Rocksteady Studios, but have you ever wondered what it would be like to play as Batman in a steampunk setting? Specifically in the one-shot comic Gotham By Gaslight?
Turns out that Day 1 Studios, developer of F.3.A.R. and Fracture, was working on such a game, throwing Batman into the world of steampunk, tracking down Jack the Ripper, with Gotham By Gaslight as the source material. Unfortunately, the pitch for the game didn’t go through and it was cancelled.
Well, at least we have this prototype video to see what it might have become, if it had gone through. Note that this is still a prototype video, hence the level of completion on this is unknown. No point in comparing it to a finished and highly polished work, such as the Arkham series. I do like how his cape flows around Batman though.
