Éclaircies is an experimental first person racing video game set in a vast and intricate forest to be explored, altered and charted out. The gameplay stems from a walking and running simulation redefining the first person controller through a two-button control scheme. Thanks to this new way of moving around, Éclaircies offers an immersive experience in a rich and vast environment that is deeply altered as players traverse it.
