Hi,

I want to develop a game which is not open source and I intend to sell it.
Am I allowed to use eclipse as IDE for the development of it, according to eclipse license?

Thank you.

Yes, you can use the tools to develop anything you want. The EPL applies
to the source code distributed by Eclipse.org and effectively says, "if
you modify the source, you must share those modifications publicly". It
says nothing about what you are or are not allowed to sell. You can even
try to sell Eclipse if you want and can find someone who'll pay.
