Clear is a romancevisual novel in which the player assumes the role of Kōichi Yukino. Its gameplay mainly consists of reading and progressing through the story’s narrative and dialogue.[1] The game’s text is accompanied by character sprites, which represent who Kōichi is talking to, appearing on top of background artwork.[1] Throughout the game, the player encounters CG artwork at certain points in the story, which take the place of the regular background art and character sprites.[1]Clear follows a branching plot line with nonlinear sequences and multiple endings, where the plot’s direction is affected by the player’s decisions.[1]

The gameplay requires little interaction from the player as most of the duration of the game is spent on simply reading the text that will appear on the screen; this text represents either dialogue between the various characters, or the inner thoughts of the protagonist.[1] Every so often, the player will come to a “decision point” where they are given the chance to choose from options that are displayed on the screen, typically two to three at a time.[1] During these times, gameplay pauses until a choice is made that furthers the plot in a specific direction, depending on which choice the player makes.[1] There are five main plot lines that the player will have the chance to experience, one for each of the five heroines in the story.[1] In order to view the five plot lines to their entirety, the player will have to replay the game multiple times and choose different choices during the decision points in order to further the plot in an alternate direction.[1] Throughout gameplay, there are scenes depicting Kōichi and a given heroine having sexual intercourse.[1]
