First person view?
« on: August 02, 2009, 03:21:44 AM »

Hey,
 So I was wondering, how would I go about making an adventure with a first person view? So basically there would be no actor and you'd just click things like normal to use them. So kinda like Myst without the turning around.

I searched the forums a little bit and saw someone mention something about and example or tutorial for this, though I haven't been able to find one.

Thanks!

BTW, I think first person games can be awesome.  I recently played Pahelika and never had so much fun!!!! If you don't know Pahelika, google it.  :  )  Sweet!

Thanks! I should be able to figure it out from that, but I'll make sure to let you know if I can't  ;D

Oh, and I agree, first person games CAN be awesome (unless of course it's some pixel hunting game, but that's just my opinion :)

If you mean hidden object games, I don't find them much fun, but puzzle games are something else entirely.  If you haven't tried Pahelika, try it and you'll see what I mean.  I did not use the walkthrough except once.  : )

Yeah, that's what I meant. But no, I love puzzles  ;D.

And I think I will try Pahelika. I looked at some screenies and read a little about it and it looked pretty good.

I don't know what engine they used or if they made their own but I see nothing that would keep such a game from being made in Wintermute.
