The survival genre horror genre in video games has been at its best these past couple of years. To add to the already saturated list, we now have ILL, developed on Unreal Engine 5. Developer Team Clout is working towards this indie survival horror game. Moreover, the fact that it is based on Unreal Engine already means that it is going to look unimaginably good.
Developer Team Clout took to their official YouTube channel recently to post a snippet of ILL’s gameplay. So yes, we actually do know now how the game will look. Although it is in its development phase, the gameplay video gives a good insight into how the game will mostly look and feel. Now, let us take a quick look at the upcoming Unreal Engine 5-based Indie survival horror game, ILL.
Right off the bat, one can clearly notice the Resident Evil inspiration in the gameplay. The setting and overall atmosphere of the game is very identical to the Resident Evil series of games. More like Resident Evil 7: Biohazard. Something about the game that fans of the survival horror genre will like is the fact that it does showcase gore in all its glory.
In addition, the graphical textures, lighting and animations look stunning, thanks to Unreal Engine 5. Developer Team Clout has also promised that there are going to be reactive environments in ILL. They have further added that there is going to be destructibility mechanics in the game as well. Both of which are something that gamers of all sorts may dig.
As for the ILL release date, nothing can be said for sure on that front. This is primarily because the game’s main source of funding is via Patreon. Moreover, Team Clout is working on it as a part-time project using Unreal Engine 5. Considering all these factors, the game’s official release does not seem to be anytime soon.
ILL will be releasing for PC, when it does. Besides, nothing is known about the story of the game. However, it has been confirmed that ILL will rather be a straightforward survival horror game. So, there are not going to be any super complex plot twists either. For now, this is all that is known about this project. Hopefully, more details will surface online in the coming days.
