In early 2008, Brash Entertainment, who owned the license to DC Comics games, hired BottleRocket Entertainment to create a video game adaption of the DC Comics character, The Flash. The project came to a halt when Brash Entertainment folded in November of 2008. By that time, BottleRocket had already put in ten months worth of work, 3 to 4 months of pre-production and 6 months of actual production. The game still required another year's worth of work to get to completion.

Last several day, I've posted navigation, combat and gameplay animatics, as well as plenty of fantastic concept art. Today, the game's Lead Designer, Greg Miller, has sent over storyboards and never-before-seen concept art. The storyboards were created by Roger Robinson's, as well as his character designs for Grodd, Tarpit and a Speed Demon. There's also two painted concept pieces of Central City done by Shane Nakamura. Lastly, a shot of a Cadmus Soldier that has the original concept art and then the in game renders.

The basics were planned to go something like this: the game was broken down into chapters with each chapter culminating in a boss fight against one of the Rogues Gallery. During the chapter the player would have been going on missions that he received either by intercepting police broadcasts or accepting them from various NPCs around the two cities (the player was confined to Central and Keystone cities; no world exploration allowed for the first game). At the time we had three core principles for the missions: racing (going from one point to another as quickly as possible), moving combat (fighting against other speedsters or moving vehicles ALA Road Rash), and arena combat (fighting against criminals at a location). All the missions in the game would stem from these principles, mixed and matched as needed. We had enough scenarios planned out that no two missions would ever had the same story wrapper. Oh yeah and it is important to note that we were working with famed DC writer Marv Wolfman. He was writing the overall storyline, the mission flavor, and the dialog. - anonymous source told leakybattery.wordpress.com

Best Flash game is the DC Universe Online. Makes me want to get on PSN and hop on that again.

I would love for Rocksteady to do a Green Arrow game.

Rocksteady could pull off a green arrow game. I'd love to see a good Flash, Green Lantern our superman game though

Make this game again but with another superhero

Every time I'm playing Arkham Origins I think about how cool it would be to have a Green Arrow game like it. Please DCE make this happen!

WB/DC, please look into making this game again!! Don't just concentrate on Batman, there are other heroes worthy of their own video game like the Flash!! Make it happen!

Green Lantern had a game, and it was AMAZING! Basically God Of War meets the Green Lantern movie. Beat it 4x and it still doesn't get old.

really like the storyboards

when i'm playing injustice, nothing makes someone rage quit more than when you're kicking their ass as the flash

@GLRuelz While I did enjoy that game, it was too short and needed more reply value like the Arkham games do. And I wish you could fly whenever you wanted to instead of only on certain missions.

This really could have been a cool game. It's a shame that no one can finish it. The code is still out there and it would be nice to see this given another shot.

Get this game made! Please!
TheCaptain - 12/13/2013, 3:20 PM
I'd love for the next Batman game to at least cameo or reference the other DC superheroes. There was a Queen Industries logo in Arkham Origins.

@JasonBlue Why they have no relationship or history with Ollie or Barry like Hal does. It's almost like saying you want Spider-Man to show up.

they should really consider doing more flash animated movies
