This is early game footage from the unfinished Flash video game made by Bottlerocket Entertainment in 2008. When our publisher Brash folded we were about 6 months into full production with about a year still to go on the game so please excuse the roughness of how it looks at this stage. A lot of the core elements were just starting to surface and we were all really saddened that the game couldn’t be saved. This video shows off a good chunk of the early production work on Central City. It also gives a good example of the various tricks Flash could pull off as well as really showcase the running speed we were shooting for.
Greg Miller, who was the Lead Designer on The Flash video game (cancelled) that was being developed by BottleRocket Entertainment, has sent us an exclusive video that gives us a tour of Barry Allen’s home, Central City. Come check it out!
“The bulk of the original Flash video came from this tour of Central City. In this video you get to see Flash racing around the city at various speeds (his top speed is actually in this video so hopefully this will satisfy people that kept saying he wasn’t running fast enough), you’ll get to see him running across rooftops doing various stunts and grinds, and it should give a pretty good taste of the overall art direction we were taking Central City.” – Greg Miller
Man I would have loved for this game to see the light of day. Imagine how awesome a fully developed Flash game could be. It would be a great new experience we haven’t really had in an open world game before… if you don’t count InFamous and Saints Row 4.
Maybe with the new Flash TV show on the horizon and the buzz of a Flash movie potentially in the works, a solid Flash video game could become a reality one day.
