City of Brass is a challenging first-person roguelike themed after the Arabian Nights. In other words, you will be spending most of your time looking for treasure, exploring opulent cities and derelict ruins, fighting against a variety of mythological creatures, and naturally, trying your damnest to not die a brutal and disappointing death.

While its not yet ready for release, you can get an idea of what City of Brass is going to look and play like via the recently posted gameplay trailer down below. Its sadly not very long, but it should suffice for now. Have a look:

Visually I think its fair to say that City of Brass looks pretty damn good, and that the setting's potential has definitely not been wasted. What I'm not equally as happy about are the attack animations given that they currently lack any sort of impact, which leaves the combat in a rather awkward position. On the positive side, City of Brass is heading to Early Access before release, so there will be plenty of time to iron out all of the flaws and hopefully create something quite special.

Speaking of release dates, you can expect City of Brass to arrive on Steam Early Access this September 18th, while the full version will come to PC and consoles at some point in 2018. If you would like to learn more I would recommend heading over to either Steam or the official website. Since I can offer you very little else in terms of useful information, allow me to leave you with a couple of surprisingly colorful images given the desert setting:
