Gotham City Impostors


This may be old news for some but it was certainly news for me: Warner Bros. is developing a multiplayer first-person shooter apparently set in the Batman universe called Gotham City Impostors. I'm not sure what to say...

There's something about "first-person shooter" and "Batman" that doesn't quite mix. And while I understand that you don't actually play as Batman in the game, you do however play as a bunch of "impostors" in Batman costumes; which I guess makes it okay.

Reading more about the game, it sounds like a regular run of the mill FPS but with the Joker and Batman skins over it. That said, the game is going to be a downloadable title. Considering that downloadable titles have recently been getting better in quality (from my experience, there have been a truckload of great downloadable games these past few years) I'll probably give the game a shot... for all I know, it might actually be good.

Then again, to sort of mimic Comic Alliance, if Batman doesn't show up at the end of each campaign and beat the crap out of every player while breaking their guns in half, yelling "These are the weapons of the enemy! We do not use them!" I'll be gravely disappointed.

Anyway, I made a quick colored sketch based off of the "Batchick" that appeared in the promotional poster for the game.


Here's the digital sketch:

  2. news to me too. Can't say I'd expect to see much out of a game just trying to cash in on the name of Batman. Unless we see some homemade Bat gadgets as weapons, what's the point? That, and it looks like with the design choice they settled on, we'll probably end up getting another dime-a-dozen Team Fortress style multiplayer game.

    Either way, the character designs look nice, especially the girls. I like what you with Bat Babe; love how thick she is, and nice touch with the bat pubes.

  3. "very sexy glassfish so she is an impostor?"

    From what I understand they all are impostors dressed in Batman and Joker attire.

    "Either way, the character designs look nice, especially the girls. I like what you with Bat Babe; love how thick she is, and nice touch with the bat pubes."

    Thank you :)

    As for the design, even though they're neat, especially the Joker Chick, I don't think they're the primary designs for the game. From what I've read you can customize your character's looks.
