Equipped with a wingsuit, the diver flies in free-fall in a futuristic canyon:
- He has to avoid the obstacles placed in his path,
- Take advantage of the warm airflows to keep flying,
- Dodge automatic turrets’ crossfire,
- Lose, flying drones hunting him.
Extract of the prayer of the shadow diver:
“In the name of Daedalus who created the canyon
Of Icarus, Our Father of Sails, who opened it to men,
To whom the shadow divers always trust,
See, at your feet, your sons who would like to climb unto You,
Give them a heart as thoug as the wingsuits which they carry,
A passion for serving as powerful as the winds which guide them,
A body as strong as the rocks which they fly over,
A flawless attention against any unforeseen dangers,
But above all, Our Father of Sails,
Be always present by their side,
Allow them to triumph over the storms which becomes their trajectories,
So they deliver their message “.
