This Week in Gotham – 8/12/2011


Each and every week there’s going to be plenty of awesome stuff that happens here in the realm of Gotham City Impostors. And you know what? We think that’s great! We’re going to be keeping a steady gaze on you and your kin to see what you’re up to, and then report back with our findings. Sound like fun? Then let’s get started!

We’re aliiiivvveee!
As we’re sure you’re well aware (since you’re currently using it), the website for Gotham City Impostors is up and running, and you guys have been jumping all over it! Whether you’re devouring the content in our blog, watching the videos on the front page, perusing through the many images we’ve got lined up, or discussing whatever comes to mind in our forums, it’s been a great start to the adventure. Welcome, and enjoy your stay!

Customization is key
There have been an awful lot of questions regarding customization in Gotham City Impostors. While we could go on and on about the possibilities, we’d rather just show you a video and let you see it for yourselves. So, without further ado, here’s our official customization trailer! Once you’ve watched it, why not discuss it?

Beta! Beta! Beta!
Our closed beta is on its way! Now, bear in mind that there are a limited number of keys so we can’t say for certain that you’ll get in, but signing up will help your chances tremendously! It’ll be limited to players in North America playing on their PCs, and it’ll start up in September. More details will be coming soon, so keep your eyes peeled!

Keeping August hot
This month both Gamescom (held over in Köln, Germany) and PAX Prime (which is here in Seattle, WA) are happening, and we’ll be at both providing hands-on time with Gotham City Impostors! If you find yourself near either of them, drop in and get your hands on the game! We’d love to get a controller in your capable hands.

Follow the mayhem
While we may be out of the office and away from our computers, that won’t stop us from updating our trusty social media outlets! Both our Facebook and Twitter pages will be rich with information while we’re on Gamescom’s and PAX’s show floors. Check them out to make sure you’re up to date with all the latest happenings!

Introduce yourself, won’t you?
Our forums have already become a hotbed of great discussion. Why not drop on in and introduce yourself? We’d love to have you out there! (Don’t worry, we don’t bite… often.)

Site downtime on Monday!
Well, not actual downtime, but our website will be in read-only mode from 2:00am-6:30am Pacific Time this Monday, August 15th. During this window you won’t be able to authenticate or create new accounts, but you can peruse the site as much as your little heart desires! Just a heads up, y’all.

That’s it for this week’s update! Now, what say you meet up with us at Gamescom or PAX Prime?
