After a successful demo at the local Jam Nerd Festival, and a Steam Greenlight in just 9 days, Brazillian developer TDZ Games have announced that their first game, Eliosi's Hunt, is heading to Xbox One.

The game is described as a "sci-fi top-down shooter and platformer", following the adventures of the titular Eliosi:

...who dreams of becoming a bounty hunter but completing his first contract will be more challenging than he thinks. During your journey, you will face monsters from nature, mutated creatures, nomad tribes, natural disasters, a robot army and more.

Eliosi can use several weapons (like flame-throwers, laser guns and launchers) and equipment (like jetpacks and thruster boots) to help him through the dangers around him.

Throughout the journey, Eliosi will upgrade his companion drone that helps him in the toughest moments but in order to do that you must explore the most dangerous places in the planet.

It will take a lot of persistence and will to learn from the mistakes for this young alien to fulfill his dream.
TDZ also released a gameplay trailer to show off their use of the Unreal Engine 4, and to give us a flavour of what to expect:

The game is due to be released on August 23rd.
