Necropolis puts players in a magical, massive tomb that changes according to the whims of the Brazen Head, a supernatural intelligence created by the powerful archmage, Abraxis. The Necropolis is a dangerous, deadly dungeon that feeds on the deaths of adventurers that attempt to escape, using their spirits to power its gears and their reanimated corpses to patrol its passageways.

Necropolis comes from Harebrained Schemes, the studio behind the Shadowrun series. It's a third-person action roguelike with ever-changing dungeons in a low-poly environment. Harebrained describes the game as follows: "Thousands have entered the Necropolis. Legend says, somewhere inside, undead and immortal, Abraxis presides on an onyx throne. In ten centuries, only one adventurer has escaped, and I'm afraid he emerged quite mad. But you ... I'm sure you'll make it out just fine. You seem like the adventurous type."

Necropolis is due out in 2016 for PC and Mac via Steam, and unannounced consoles.
