Uppercut Games keen to announce City of Brass, available now on Steam. Since City of Brass launches this week for Windows. The games launching at an introductory price of $19.99 USD for the first week. Then after that it will revert to $24.99 USD.
So what’s the big deal with City of Brass?
City of Brass is developed using Unreal Engine 4. Therefore a Linux and Ubuntu port would be a given, right?
Well as we mentioned when first introducing the game, that’s not the case. Since the games currently in Early Access. Therefore native support could be on the list, depending how well City of Brass does in sales. At least according to the Steam Discussions. Yet the developers also forwarded this statement:
“So it’s not a given we can be on every platform. That said, we really do WANT to be everywhere we can be.
It all comes down to how much time we will have once we have shipped on PC and consoles.”
So that being said, the intent is there. However the support from the community needs to be there as well. Since Uppercut Games are a small development team. Such is the case with many indie developers.
City of Brass – Early Access Launch Trailer:
First-Person Arabian Nights Rogue-Lite!
Armed with a blade and a whip that can grab, trip, disarm, stun or shatter as well as swing. So players can lash and slash, trick and trap their way through an opulent procedurally-generated city. Making it to each trap-infested level’s exit before the sands of time run out. Participating in Daily Challenges and testing their mettle against other players on the Steam Leaderboard.
The initial Early Access version already has a core experience in place. So now that the games launches, players can dive into a 12 level campaign with hours of replayability. While revealing new enemies in each level, discovering gear and relics. Encountering fresh traps and evolving their tactics.
Uppercut Games are in Early Access to help balance and tune the gameplay systems. Steadily adding more content as they approach Final Release.
So if you’re interested in braving City of Brass via Wine or PlayOnLinux. Dive in now and get the game on Steam. Hopefully with enough support and community interest, we will have a Linux and Ubuntu build.
