Bring some more reality with Stereoscopic pictures – Loquiz game ideas

Try some stereoscopic pictures in your Loquiz game

Here is one of the key principles to make a gamification good: Immersion.

You need to make your player immersed in your game. And here in this article, I will give you a feature that will help you get an even better immersion:

The stereoscopic pictures for the augmented photos.

Here is one example of an augmented photo using a stereoscopic picture:

What does it mean?

According to Wikipedia, “Stereoscopy (also called stereoscopic, or stereo imaging) is a technique for creating or enhancing the illusion of depth in an image”. By adding an effect of depth, by mainly using shades, your augmented photo can give some immersion for the player.

A lot of augmented photo tasks involve some role-playing. From there, the more the picture looks lively, the more the outcome will be better for your players.

(if you do not know what is an augmented picture, I let you read this page. I definitely recommend them!)

So I’ve tested one, using some of my favorite figurines. Have a look here:

Trying out a stereoscopic picture with my figurines

Nice scenery, isn’t it? My figurines enjoy this Christmas tree. Indeed, in only 5 days from now, they are going to celebrate it.

Now, I assume that you have the following question:

Where can we find stereoscopic pictures?

I advise you this website, PNGTree.

the website PNGTree

So here, you can get 2 free pictures per day. But you can also access a considerable library of pictures for your augmented photos. And they all have transparency; so it will be a matter of minutes before you can implement it in your Loquiz task.

Here is the raw stereoscopic picture

Note: As we’re going close to Christmas, the website offers a lot of themed pictures. I actually enjoy that their offer adapts to the seasonality (as our games adapt to it too).

Enjoy!
