If you feel like exploring Ancient Egypt right now, I have some great news from you: indie developer Milkstone Studios (creators of Ziggurat) are planing to send you back in time with Pharaonic, a side-scrolling Action RPG which will be launched on Steam Earely access on January 28th. You can already check out the Steam page of the game here and be one of the first to try it out.

Pharaonic is an unforgiving sidescrolling Action-RPG set in Ancient Egypt. Explore a vast kingdom full of dangers and brutal enemies while you find the truth behind Ahmosis I, the Red Pharaoh. Polish your combat skills to the finest and loot the best gear possible to even have the slightest chance of overcoming this difficult endeavor. Will you opt for lightweight equipment, trusting on your agility to avoid death? Or will you prefer to take the blow and strike back even harder? The decision is entirely yours to make.

Here is a trailer showing you bits of the game:

With hundreds of pieces of equipment available, sidequests and massive boss battles, this once certainly looks like a game you have to try out, so make sure you check out the Steam Store on January 28th to give Pharaonic a try.
