Official Gameplay Trailer



Teaser Trailer



The game is designed to plunge the player into an uncharted territory governed by dynamics that need to be mastered in order to survive and progress. The player witnesses illo’s premature awakening in the wrong place, an unexplored environment populated by unexpected creatures where the sequence of events is neither modular nor foreseeable: a unique wonderland.

illo’s appearance is stripped of all visual redundancies that would unnecessarily complicate the game mechanics; in fact, its minimalist ambience created via colors, animations, clean design, lights and shadows is one of its strong points.
