Gotham City Imposters roots in The Dark Knight and TDK Viral – sorta

Finally a real explanation of “Batman First Person Shooter” Gotham City Imposters.  From GameSpy’s WIll Tuttle

“Remember that scene in the beginning of The Dark Knight when a bunch of Batman wannabes decide it’s their civic duty to stop crime, only to have their asses summarily handed to them? Well, that’s sort of the direction Gotham City Impostors takes…”

Except it was all rather bleak in The Dark Knight,

whereas participants in The Dark Knight Viral saw a more lighthearted side on sites like Citizens for Batman where the idea slowly formed.  Gotham City Imposters will capture this lighter view with a tone like Team Fortress 2.

updated to include official trailer.
