Clear Lakes 44 was an internet video series/ARG that was uploaded to the YouTube channel "Clear Lakes 44 | MarbleHornets" on August 3rd, 2015. It appears to have been written and directed by the creators of MarbleHornets (Troy Wagner, Joseph Delage, and Tim Sutton). It was put on an indefinite hiatus, with the plot of the broacasts currently released being intended to be entirely rewritten.
With the release of ECKVA, it is likely that Clear Lakes 44 will never be finished.
Nearly nothing is understood about the series. As the series halted production before it had finished establishing much, the plot of the original Clear Laks 44 is only known by the producers.
The first four broadcasts were shot in VHS quality video, showing older people in an unknown location. Birds and the outdoors are a running motif. In Broadcast 4, two gentlemen are seen interacting in an alley before leaving.
Broadcast 5 and Broadcast 6 introduce new elements, such as the solid black figure with white eyes.
