One of the promises it brings with it Unreal Engine 5, the new version of the graphics engine from Epic Games, is the ease for small development teams to create Technically surprising video games. And ILL, the first person shooter horror adventure of Team Clout is representative of what independent studies can do with these tools, a few years await us where the photorealism be possible even outside the big producers.

The trailer that you can see on these lines, according to the Russian development team working on the title, has been captured in game. Textures, lighting, animations and effects of post-processing they suppose a generational leap in a title that recalls for different reasons (the setting, the way the protagonist’s hands move …) to Resident Evil 7.

Even at that time it already looked spectacular in movie scenes, the design of the mini bosses and the short sections of gameplay presented.

Team Clout promises a title with “immersive graphics and exciting designs”, “advanced” physics, interactive environments, dismemberment (as you can see in the video below), body transformations in real time (something that is also shown in another video that we insert below) and a simple story: according to this movie scene, it seems that we are facing a slasher in which the protagonist is trapped in a nightmare environment after having an accident.
