Bioshock, meets Indiana Jones? – I’m in.
Today, Uppercut Games – an independent studio comprising of veterans from Irrational Games and 2k Australia, announced City of Brass.
Set around an Arabian Nights themed city, City of Brass is a first-person rogue-lite. Filled with Loot, Ghouls and of course Genies.

“Developing a game with multiple, interacting systems that players can freely combine feels like a return to our roots, drawing on our experiences working on *BioShock* and many of our other favorites,” explained Ed Orman, Lead Designer. “Players must learn how to use the traps to kill their foes, and even turn enemies against each another. You’ll perish in the *City of Brass* – often, and quite horribly – but as your skills improve and you discover new ways to cheat death, you’ll return to fight another day.”
Watching the gameplay trailer above, you can see the team’s influences shine. From their previous work with Irrational to similar titles, such as Dishonored, you can get the sense that you’re going to need your wits about you. The environments are procedurally-generated and we’ve also learned that permadeath is a thing, no two playthroughs are going to be the same. So expect to have your patience and composure completely destroyed – great!
City of Brass is expected to be released on Steam later this fall. PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners will have to wait ‘till 2018.
