Earlier this year, concept art emerged from a Gotham by Gaslight game pitched to THQ. Now, a source has provided Siliconera with video of an animation prototype allegedly from the same project. According to their report, the game was in development by Day 1 Studios, the developers behind FEAR 3 and Fracture, before being canceled.

Siliconera reports that the game was based upon Batman spinoff comic Gotham by Gaslight, a Batman story released in the 1980s and set in the Victorian era. The game "was designed with a foggy world for Batman to explore and he would have the ability to see in the dark. Day 1 Studios tried to work with THQ to publish the game, but after an unsuccessful pitch Gotham by Gaslight was canned."

What Could Have Been-Batman: Gotham By Gaslight Footage Surfaces


Gotham By Gaslight, the Batman game that pit players in a Steampunk Gotham, sadly was cancelled before it left the pitch. We first heard word about this game through a Kotaku article about visual artist Julie Farrell's website which displayed many images from the would-be Batman game. Now we have the first footage of Gotham By Gaslight. While the game was early in developement, it surely does look good. The footage depicts a Steampunk Batman patrolling the streets of 1889 Gotham City. Batman's character model seems to be rather muscular, this is highlighted near the end of the clip when we see the Dark Knight without his cape. To take a look at what could have been, hit up the YouTube link, or just play the video below.

Damn this would have been so epic!

I've been diggin the whole Steampunk culture. It's crazy how they have their own style of everything, even music. It's pretty wild.

The cape looked like a ####ing shower curtain. And how the #### did he jump from the ground onto the top of a rooftop?

The cape physics were great but it was stupid how the cape had another layer near Batman's cowl. It almost looked like the back of Sherlock Holmes' jacket.



The enviroment looked too much like early 20th century London and not enough like a busy metropolitan Gotham City.

Arkham City >>>>>> this garbage.

There's a reason this game was scrapped.

My fault I must've missed that part in the article.

Still though, a Batman game set in the 1800's.

That's what Steampunk is though.

It's Victorian era meets technology/sci-fi.
