Developer Spiral House Ltd are bringing their episodic, action-adventure game Troll and I
to the Xbox One console later this year. The game will be played in third person view, as are similar games of this genre. You will take control of a young boy named Otto who is skillful with a spear, melee weapons, and agile as a cat.

Here is a bit about the story, as described by the developer:
After a disaster destroys his village, a young boy named Otto is forced to run, leaving his family and friends behind to fend for himself in a harsh, demanding landscape. But in the midst of chaos and from the desire to survive, Otto befriends a Troll. Together they embark on a journey that explores the friendship and emotional depth of human and beast as they trek across a devastated landscape that has concealed many secrets… until now!
