Hassault And Battery: Gotham City Imposters

pretend batman is still moody batman
I still can’t quite believe that Gotham City Imposters is officially licensed. Coming across as a blend of Kick-ass and Batman, its comedic and yet brutal take on a Gotham without its iconic protector and his gruesome nemesis is too crazy to receive DC Comics sanction, surely? Apparently, and thankfully, that’s not the case, with a new animated short demonstrating precisely why I’m amazed and gleeful that the game exists. There’s a massive dose of customisation, allowing you to create a suave Joker or an unkempt and overweight Batman, and the game is currently in a short closed beta. From what I can gather, its multiplayer team-based madness is enjoyable and, well, mad. Watch this and feel your mind boggle.

To The Betacave! Gotham City Imposters

The Dark Knight's Spyglasses

Gotham City Imposters, which can very loosely be described as Team Fortress 2 populated by armies of crazies pretending to be either Batman or the Joker, is two important things: 1) the first game from NOLF-makers Monolith since the dour FEAR 2, and more importantly their first attempt to do humour and outlandishness rather than po-faced horror since 2003 2) bonkers.

This is why my bat-sense is tingling at news GCI has opened beta sign-ups.

Holy [BLEEP]: Gotham City Imposters Trailer

NUMBER ONE!

Hurrah! A new trailer for the exceptionally bonkers-sounding Gotham City Imposters – a game in which everyone is either pretending to be Batman or the Joker. That is a Good Concept. This one’s a CG trailer, and therefore not much use to anyone, but it sure is fun to watch. Hey, that’s a use! And it contains lots and lots of bleeped swearing. But what’s this? It turns out that we’re such bloated idiots that we missed a game footage trailer last month. So that’s below too.

Just A Quickie: Gotham City Imposters Image

Harley Quinn! Yay! If only she were made out of Lego.

Last night I mentioned Gotham City Imposters. The question I think everyone was left with was: if we’re all either Batman or the Joker, how much variety do we actually have? A piece of artwork released today suggests: and awful lot. Click on the pic above for a much bigger version, which suggests that as much as each side is themed by the one character, the differences will be striking. Even to the point of being a girl. (So essentially Batgirl and Harley Quinn (yay!), really.) Also, I’m still not over celebrating that it’s Monolith making this, despite its not being a game about sad people being scared on a depressing day!

Holy Happy Monolith: Gotham City Imposters

All we have so far is a logo.

Woah, this one snuck past me earlier. If there’s anything we like to do at RPS, it’s race our remote-controlled yachts around the castle moat. But we also like to have a good old grumble about how Monolith used to be this team who made brilliantly funny FPS games, and now all they do is make grumpy, grisly faux-horror. Well, hold onto your heads, because it looks like they’re making something silly again! Gotham City Imposters is a Batworld-inspired multiplayer FPS in a Gotham overrun by imposters of Batman and The Joker. Buh?
