There were many different layouts I had tried to make during this semester.
First Failure: Learning Space
Second Failure: VR Molecule
Third Failure: Howls Moving Castle
First Success: Meditation Island
-Creating the landscape
-Materials and Textures added to the island
-Adding wind to the leaves
-Changing the texture of the water
-Overview of the map
A short video showcasing what the world I have develop looks like.
For Digc330 I created a game called One Of Us Is Not Like The Other. The game has many different versions as it can be expanded to all sorts of different character. The first prototype I did was based on a variety of mythology. From werewolf to sirens and will-o-wisp. Game Play Crash Course!
The game is story base where players would have to use the cards in their hand and form a story. There are 3 things that much be achieved for you to win.
- You must use all the cards in your hand
- Your creature must be the main character by the end of the story
- Finally you must not have the curse card by the end of the game
The issue behind this project was the art. As it was works taken from different artistes on devianart. Being passionate for this project I have decided to up my game and teach myself on how to do. I have invested into getting a tab to draw it out digitally but at the moment I’m sticking with paper to get the basics of drawing. Here are some samples that I have done.
Here is a link to my Instagram account. Follow me if you want to get more updates on this project!
The rules of the game is also available here so have a look if you’re interested in it!
This is the last video for my project. The whole experience was great and I did manage to get a lot out of it. For my final video I did my very best in recreating the idea of using 3D printed objects as an interactive tool with the Oculus Rift. Although it is not exactly what I had in mind but it is close to it. In the video I had 3D printed out this guy
The game I had used to help convey my idea is called “Reus” a came developed by Abbey Games. In the game you are a bunch of giants (Sea, Swamp, Ocean and Rock Giant) That can manipulate the environment as you like. However mankind on the other hand you have no control of and from the environment you create mankind will develop from it.
So in the video I used “Oculus” in playing the game but instead of using a mouse I used the printed giant as the interactive tool in the game. With the knowledge and editing skills I have I did my best in making it as realistic as possible. I hoped you have enjoyed it and I shall leave you with a question to boggle your mind. Will Oculus team up with 3D printing in actually making something like this happen?
On a side note there is a place in the US that has made something very similar to this but instead of using 3D printed items they actually made the whole place as the interactive tool. It is called The Void heres a link if you are interested in finding more about it. https://thevoid.com/#home
Once again hope you enjoyed it!
Generally I have interviewed what people have though about this idea. Now to actually see if gamers are really interested in an idea like this.
From the interviews it is clear that they are generally interested about Oculus and its capability. With my idea on adding 3D printed objects as an interactive tool within Oculus. They all agreed that it will take the next level in making the games more immersive. It is great to see a positive responds from gamers about this idea and how their anticipation on what more virtual reality has to offer. Till the next post! Thanks for watching! Here are some of the games which I have tried to portray the gamers that were interviewed. The games used were
- Battlefield 4
- Legend of Zelda
Continuing from last week’s video. The idea I had in mind for Oculus and 3D Printing or how these two mediums will work together. Is for Oculus to recognize 3D printed objects and those object become the interactive tool in the game. Confuse? Imagine you are playing Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 game. You could print a wand and the Oculus interact with the printed wand. Which then recognizes what it is and make that your tool in the game. So you would no longer be clicking your mouse to shoot spells. You would be saying the spells and casting it from the wand. Giving the game a more realistic and immerse feeling. I then interviewed some people on this idea and see what their responses are. At the end of the video I had try to create this idea by using photoshop the interviewers into games and using 3D printed item as their interaction tools. The games that were featured are:
- Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2
- Star Wars
As a conclusion. This idea is still at its beginning stage and does have its limitation but from the responses from the interviews there is an interest in this idea. How will it continue to expand and change gaming, even communicating with others tune in next week for another update. Thanks!

This is the start of my major project. It is something new and something that has not been made, it is an idea. How it expands is up to everyone. I will not be telling what my idea would be yet but here is a short introduction on what it is about. Basically the two platforms I would be interested in is Oculus Rift and 3D Printing. How I decide to make this work? Only time can tell.
Hope you enjoy the video and do follow up if you are interested to know more!
