I’m so sad this Steampunk Batman game will never see the light of day. But at least we get a sneak peek of what could have been!
Based on the comic Gotham by Gaslight, Batman goes after Jack the Ripper in the late 1800′s. Don’t you just love his cape? This would have been so cool!
Day 1 Studios, the developer behind of F.3.A.R. and Fracture, was also working on a video game starring Batman. Their vision was to use the one-shot comic Gotham by Gaslight as the source material. Set at the end of the 19th century, Gotham by Gaslight follows the Dark Knight as he tracks down Jack the Ripper. Concept art for the game revealed Gotham by Gaslight’s steampunk vibe.
Now, we have a better look at what Gotham by Gaslight would have been like thanks to an animation prototype video from a source at Day 1 Studios.
