"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


Greg Miller has since moved on to building apps.  His latest, Monster Rift, is featured below.  It’s free to play so do him a favor and check it out

Monster Rift HD
By Veritas Design Group

Description: Help Dood travel through dozens of cavernous Rifts as he collects eggs, avoids traps, smashes through obstacles, and defeats a horde of monsters. Once you’ve escaped a Rift, take your eggs to the Hatchery and see what kind of surprise is in each one. Is it a Rift Baby that will help you unlock the next level? A Companion creature that will enhance your abilities? Or perhaps some Gems that you can use to purchase other helpful items from the Monster Market?

Download the game for FREE at iTunes.

That looked cool.

DangerMan - 4/13/2014, 5:52 PM
Imagine if rocksteady created a DC video game universe...
ManofSteel23 - 4/13/2014, 5:52 PM
looks kind of like the superman returns game in visual style, I can see why it was cancelled
TimDrake87 - 4/13/2014, 5:53 PM
crap
BubSnikt - 4/13/2014, 5:53 PM
If only we had a Rocksteady Flash game...
ComicsBornAndBred - 4/13/2014, 5:53 PM
Looks like It would've been a fun play. I hope the CW Flash series displays Barry's speed like this game does
ComicsBornAndBred - 4/13/2014, 5:54 PM
@DangerMan that's the best idea I've heard In life!! It MUST be done
SuperPickle - 4/13/2014, 5:55 PM
Cute. But even the top speed shown is maybe only 200 at best. Not trying to be a curmudgeon, but Flash is just hard to make into a game like this.
NicolausCopernicus - 4/13/2014, 5:55 PM
speaking of which, an arrow videogame in the style of the arkham ones would be cool
Saintsinnister - 4/13/2014, 5:55 PM
I agree DnagerMan, a whole JL game would we awesome. Take turns with different chacters. Not a whole lot there and the other footage I saw from this game, but to have it as a level or two in a JL game would be sweet.
Ha1frican - 4/13/2014, 5:57 PM
Buy infamous second son. Use neon powers. Closest we're gonna get to flash anytime soon.
NBAfanaddict - 4/13/2014, 5:57 PM
Agree with DangerMan and BubSnikt. I'm surprised WB/DC hasn't licensed Rocksteady to do an entire DC universe, or at least games with the solo heroes. They would kill at a Flash game
SuperiorMrGod - 4/13/2014, 5:58 PM
We've seen shit from this video game on this site way to many times. I know its a slow news day but seriously?
Ha1frican - 4/13/2014, 5:58 PM
I would definitely want a Superman game by rocksteady before a JL game
DEATHbyEXILE - 4/13/2014, 5:59 PM
Meh
yonny616 - 4/13/2014, 6:05 PM
@ManofSteel it was an unfinished game. It isn't exactly going to look like it should be winning graphics awards.

Also "Greg Miller"? As in IGN Greg Miller? He was lead designer? Also the game looks like it took from inFamous.
batmanvsuperman - 4/13/2014, 6:05 PM
Looks okay but needs work make one now that would be cool
DrunkenNukem - 4/13/2014, 6:09 PM
The Flash is so cool....

Solphins - 4/13/2014, 6:14 PM
This would have been a first day buy for me. It looks like Spiderman 2, but just grounded.
Kurne - 4/13/2014, 6:15 PM
Would be fun, but looks like an oldschool Sonic game.
113 - 4/13/2014, 6:21 PM
@DangerMan

Yes yes, lets hope that's what Rocksteady is working on after Arkham Knight.
Spideyfan11 - 4/13/2014, 6:21 PM
(eyeroll) its as if rocksteady is the only company that can make a comic book videogame....i still to this day dont see why rocksteady is held on this giant comic book platter. they made 3 batman games, 2 of which were,yes,amazing, as for the 3rd it looks really good. but come on they're not the ONLY company that can make a good comic book game. They do not need to make every comic book videogame. I mean i cringed at the comments where people say amazing spider-man's videogame copied the Arkham games with their spider sense dodge feature. Ummm Did everyone forget that Spider-man 2 the movie game had the exact same feature as seen in the arkham games and the amazing spiderman? Spider-man pre dates the arkham series by about 5 years. Rocksteady took what was already there and expanded upon but did not create it.
LEEE777 - 4/13/2014, 6:21 PM
Damn that sucks, looks good!

Probably not NEW 52 enough... totally sucks, I'd buy that in a second.
gmoney0505 - 4/13/2014, 6:33 PM
This is way before pre-alpha footage from a PS2 game as well. Plus it is open world and not even finish putting alot more stuff in the city. It is where it should look at it stage which were about 6 months into development. Game up and running was all that mattered at that stage in time and visual was only going to get better as time go on.

Game looked good so far just wondered what all they would have put into it if it was 2 years into development. Ah oh well it's gone now.

You want a great DC game play DC Universe on PS4. Free to play and get a whole lot of powers. The DC Universe Online game is on a system and ya'll to shallow to even go pick it up and learn how to play the game.

So Warner Bros., when are you gonna let DC handle they own stuff from now?
Mercwitham0uth - 4/13/2014, 6:34 PM
I just had a Sonic '06 flashback.
mgeoff88 - 4/13/2014, 6:34 PM
The Flash game looks fun. I hope they plan to make another Flash game and actually complete it.

I wouldn't mind seeing a Green Arrow game either.
gmoney0505 - 4/13/2014, 6:36 PM
@COREYxYEROC
There are great developers out there but the great ones are too busy making original games and Sucker Punch is not gonna make a DC game when they want to make their own original stuff. Only Rocksteady will be willing to make other DC Games as they are owned by Warner Bros and possibly forced to make one. So it better turn out good.
Mothchild - 4/13/2014, 6:43 PM
A Green Arrow would be amazing with a tonne of DC easter eggs.

Also I need more DCCU news. Bring it WB
LEOSTRATOR - 4/13/2014, 6:45 PM
Glad they canceled this shit.
Ineedrevelation - 4/13/2014, 6:47 PM
Last gen?
BlackIceJoe - 4/13/2014, 6:47 PM
I can tell this was early production for this game. But even from what little was shown you can tell it had great potential for being a great game. I'm getting inFamous, City of Heroes and Crackdown vibes for this game. I would really like to see WB taking another shot at a Flash game. It seems like a waste to just throw away the assets for this game. So it would be interesting to see a sort of spiritual successor of this game for the PC, Xbox One and PS4. I know I would love to see more DC based superhero games other then Batman. So I would gladly welcome a Flash game or any other superhero game soon

Also just to let people know that are saying the game looks bad. I'm guessing the game was in development for around six months. Most games you play don't start looking good until just about the end of Alpha testing early Beta testing. Plus some times they still aren't at top notch until the crunch period starts. When you make a game it never looks great at the start. Most times it's just a proof of concept. Just look at the buildings and vehicles you can tell it's early in development.

Plus you also have to realize this game was running on the Xbox 360 and PS3 dev kits. So it's not going to look like the games that are out there now.

I can say without a doubt even Arkham Asylum probably looked some thing like this early on. Just with a different artistic style. When people that don't work in the video game industry see things like this it doesn't really help anyone. The reason why is because this wasn't ready to be shown. But now that the NDA's are up they can show more and tell more about the game. Which I personally like seeing more of. So many games get canned. That you would be shocked how many truly do. Take the biggest franchise out there right now which is Call of Duty. If the general public saw what it looked like early on they would be surprised Activision isn't canceling the next one.

So from what is shown the concept looked good.
Gambit10 - 4/13/2014, 6:47 PM
I am sad that this was cancelled.
JamesMan - 4/13/2014, 6:53 PM
This looks like it would have been an instant buy from me, gave me vague flashbacks to the Ultimate Spider-Man game which I LOVED.
Mothchild - 4/13/2014, 6:54 PM
Yes a Rocksteady DCG(aming)U would be mind boggling

Other good game concepts:

Wonder Woman (this could be a game changer)
Green Arrow
Cyborg
Shazam
Aquaman
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 4/13/2014, 6:55 PM
Looked pretty cool but I got a Superman Returns type of vibe from it
Mothchild - 4/13/2014, 6:57 PM
@ coreyx I think people defer to RockSteady because they completely nailed Batman plus what gmoney said
GuardianAngel - 4/13/2014, 7:03 PM
@yonny616

Different Greg Miller.
thewolfx - 4/13/2014, 7:10 PM
You will never see a flash game let alone a decent one ..

You know why?


Cus wb and rocksteady cant seem to stop sucking batmans nutsack

DEATHbyEXILE - 4/13/2014, 7:27 PM
A Wonder Woman game would have to be part Tomb Raider and part God of War to work.
Mothchild - 4/13/2014, 7:34 PM
Is that a bad thing?

Themyscira, Hades, Metropolis, Atlantis, Washington.

I haven't played God of War. Any good?
