Uppercut Games is developing a new first-person rogue-lite called 'City of Brass'.

The developers hope to offer video game enthusiasts the opportunity to test their skills inside an Arabian Nights-themed city, with the ultimate ambition being to get your hands on the city's biggest treasures.

However, if players are to achieve their aims, they will need to navigate their way past a number of traps and rivals, while genies will be on hand to offer upgrades and items.

Lead designer Ed Orman said: "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 favourites.

"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."

It has been announced that 'City of Brass' will launch for PC later this year, with the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles following suit in 2018.
