Three Dimensional Frame

From gameontology
Jump to: navigation, search

The game world is visually represented to the player using three dimensional graphics. That is, it's represented as having height, width and depth, like the "real world" we all inhabit. The dimensionality of the camera is independent of the dimensionality of the game's world. That is, a three dimensional camera may be used to depict gameplay that takes place on less than three dimensions.


Strong Example

Super Mario 64

Super Mario 64 [Miyamoto, 1996] places Mario in a 3D world represented in three dimensions. Objects in the world are represented as having three dimensional volume (height, width and depth).
