City of Brass gets classy and characterful in a big update

I've been meaning to spend more time with offbeat first-person swashbuckling roguelike City of Brass, and today's update is exactly the excuse I needed to come back to it. While the launch version of the Arabian Nights-inspired smash n' grab was perhaps a little limited it its scope, today's "Fortune's Rivals" update broadens its horizons with two new playable character classes, as well as the option to swap…

Swashbuckling action-roguelike City of Brass is out now

We must be living in a golden age of videogames, because in no other era would I have let something as immediately enticing as City of Brass escape my grasp. While I've been aware of the Arabian-themed first-person Spelunky-like's presence since its debut in early access, I've just not found the time to give it a try. Perhaps the time is finally right, as the…

I got in touch with team lead Ed Orman to find out more about how Uppercut…

City Of Brass [official site] is an Arabian Nights-themed procedurally generated FPS, arming you with a whip and a scimitar, and challenging you to see just how far you can get through…

Boaty Exploration: Submerged Surfacing Next Week

Exploring a drowned world on a dinky little boat sounds grand. Not Waterworld drowned, just... end-of-human-civilization-as-we-know-it-don't-worry-it's-kinda-peaceful-may-as-well-accept-it drowned. I've had my eye on Submerged [official site] for a while, keen to get exploring, and am glad to learn the wait is almost over. For months I've been making do the best I can, which was sitting in the bath surrounded by LEGO houses. It's not the…

Hope In A Drowned World: Submerged

Oh ay, zombies? Let's all frolick about in meadows chased by walking corpses and pretending we're engaging with the end of human civilisation. No, we won't be turned or resurrected, we'll simply sit by as sea levels rise then tear each other to pieces. In the end, almost all our accomplishments will be beneath the waves. A few pieces of technology will drift through space,…
