Grotte de Gargas A serious game created the 100th anniversary celebration of the "Gargas caves", a prehistoric site located in France. Famous for its negative wall-paintings of hands and its overlapping engravings of animal figures, part of this cave is unfortunately no longer visitable. Indeed, public access limited to avoid the deterioration (due to lightning and or CO2 rejected by breathing visitors) of its historical treasures.

This virtual version of the caves presents you with a wall rock, and cast you as scientist expert whose mission is to identify and highlight the hidden engravings representing animal figures.
