At some point, an Xbox 360 game based on the 1989 graphic novel Gotham By Gaslight, which put Batman in the Victorian England of 1889, was considered for development. Some UI screens were shown off by artist Julie Farrell.
Some of the screenshots give some hints about what the game would have featured, such as "Slo Mo". The overall configuration seems to indicate it had first person shooter-styled controls.
A Batman game where Bruce Wayne is convicted of being Jack the Ripper and sentenced to death, and must investigate the murders as Batman, is a high concept that might have made a fantastic game. One must wonder what killed it.
