Ex-Bioshock Devs Take Inspiration From Past Games To Make Arabian Nights Inspired City Of Brass

City of Brass is the latest project from Uppercut Games, a studio founded by a team of artists, designers, and programmers who worked on BioShock and BioShock 2. It’s a first-person rogue-lite adventure game. You battle your way through an Arabian Nights-inspired city, finding treasure, collecting weapons and armor, and interacting with the environment and objects around you to try to stay alive.

City of Brass is taking some inspiration from the BioShock games but will put players in a very different environment. Check out some gameplay above.

“We are drawing inspiration from BioShock in terms of the mechanics,” Uppercut founder Ed Orman told GameSpot. “We’re developing a combinative approach to the game systems, encouraging players to see how the systems interact with each other. In particular, the combo of whip and sword play into this, allowing the player to manipulate and then hurt enemies.”

Additionally, the Genies you encounter are mostly friendly, and willing to barter gear, upgrades, secrets, unlocks or protections in return for loot, not unlike Rapture’s vending machines and other devices,” he added.

There’s also a cinematic trailer out, which you can see below. Levels are proceedurally-generated, complete with traps and pitfalls. Uppercut Games says no two playthroughs will be the same. “You’ll lash, slash, trick, trap through you’re enemies, and die often!” said Orman.

City of Brass will be released on PC this fall, with PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions due out in 2018.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
