Even More Art from that Canceled Flash Video Game

Flash Game Speedster Designs - Roger Robinson

About five years ago, BottleRocket Entertainment was working on a Flash video game for Brash Entertainment. Several months in, Brash folded, and the project was canceled. We’ve previously posted about early screen art, concept art, a video clip and a commentary in our Flash video games guest post series.

Yesterday, nailbiter111 on ComicBookMovie posted an extensive gallery of concept art by Roger Robinson from his Facebook album, as well as a collection of test animations.

The art has apparently been out on Facebook for a year, but there are a lot of designs in there that I hadn’t seen before. I especially like this drawing of the Shade.

The Shade - Roger Robinson

The sheer scope of characters included is astonishing, and if nothing else, the game would have looked awesome.

Take a look at the gallery, either on ComicBookMovie or Facebook, and tell us what you think!

Lost “Flash” Game Footage Surfaces

I’m not entirely sure how I missed this when it was posted in June, but check this out:

According to the user who posted it on YouTube:

This is early game footage from the cancelled Flash video game. 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. It was showing much potential. As such we just wanted to share a sample of what the game could have been like. Enjoy!

The Brash/BottleRocket game would have been for XBox 360 and PS3. I’m not much of a gamer myself, but I have to admit that this looks like it would have been really cool!

(Found via Superheroes R Us and Comic Book Movie. There’s a long thread at Topless Robot as well.)

Art from the Flash Game that Never Was

With the success of Batman: Arkham Asylum, Super Punch has a round-up of links to Roger Robinson’s art for BottleRocket’s 2007 Flash video game that never got off the ground. I really like the menu art, and the two sets of storyboards show some interesting design choices, including a mask design reminiscent of Walter West, the “Dark Flash”. (via Comics Alliance)
