Through the will of a malevolent entity between space and time, the stars powering our ever expanding universe have been taken. 

The last remaining Star Hunter awakens in a powerless Lunarian cruiser and treks into the void with one goal: find the missing stars. 

This demo showcases an area accessible in the early stages of the full game: Helio Asteroid Cluster. One of the four fragments of the shattered Helio Star are believed to be housed within it's depths. The path to the Star Fragment will be perilous as creatures inhabiting these caverns will fight tooth and nail to defend their home.

This demo supports keyboard and gamepad, however a gamepad is highly recommended for the best possible experience!

A full list of controls are also viewable in the pause menu.

As this project is currently in development, I encourage all reviews and feedback! Any and all critiques will help improve the full game's development.

bro, just the sheer quality of what you can do these days is so impressive. keep it up.
How long is the finished version gonna be?

(1 edit)

Thank you so much for the kind words! If everything goes well, I'd say the full game will take about one more year to finish. I've been developing XIRIZ in my spare time while going to community college, so now that I finished school I work on the game during my off hours from work.

Edit: I'm blind and misread what you asked lol the finished version is planned to take around 6 hours to beat on a first playthrough, with an extra 1 - 2 hours on top of that for a %100 percent playthrough!


this game is really impressive. The combat is fun and engaging, the upgrades feel good, and the overall aesthetic of the game is nice. 

I'm really looking forward to playing more! Keep up the good work!

Thank you very much! I'm glad you enjoyed the demo!


Page is looking nice!


Very dope game. Game starts at 19:54. Keep up the great work.

Thank you so much for playing! I really enjoyed your commentary, and I'm looking forward to seeing more of your work :D ! 

I will address that bug where you got stuck in the wall, but i'm glad the fail-safe worked! 

A longer, updated demo is in the works. When it is released, I do hope you check it out.


I will certainly check out the full verison.


Cool concept, good game, filled with fun and packed with potential.

Preferably polished, but a delightful demo still.
