Mass Effect 3 – photo mission

Mass Effect 3 (BioWare, 2012) has a side mission titled “Citadel: Inspirational Stories” where you can use the character’s “omni tool” (a kind of futuristic Swiss-army-knife strapped on the arm that contains also camera capabilities) to take shots of refugees in the Citadel, to raise morale and inspire the population on the issue.

Species Hunt

Species Hunt (Frib, 2012) – submitted to Ludum Dare 24 (August 24th-27th 2012, 48 Hour Compo Entry).

Species Hunt! A game where you have to shoot birds! With a camera!

Enjoy a peaceful stroll on the beach while snapping some exotic (Ha! I mean common) birds. Try to take the best photo ever! Or fill up your collection of new species you have personally discovered, then name them after yourself! Or just enjoy the view and watch the birds muck about.

Requires XNA 4.0. Should work on most machines, but if it doesn’t, let me know and I’ll try to fix it ASAP!

Controls are editable in-game. But a quick rundown:
Move with WASD/arrows
Equip camera with RMB
Take picture with LMB
Show/hide photo album with tab
Run with shift
Zoom camera with Q/E or mousewheel

Photographs taken in-game can be saved for use outside the game. Simply click on the photo in the album, then save to disk. You can also enable autosaving every new photo taken automatically in the options menu.

Spirit Camera The Cursed Memoir

Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir (TECMO KOEI GAMES and Nintendo, 2012).

Spirit Camera […] is a spin-off game in the Fatal Frame series, co-developed by Tecmo Koei and Nintendo for the Nintendo 3DS. The game comes with an “AR notebook”, the titular Diary of Faces, which the player uses in conjunction with the game.

[…]

Spirit Camera utilizes the capabilities of the Nintendo 3DS, which acts as the game’s Camera Obscura, the signature “weapon” of the Fatal Frame series. The game uses the gyro sensors and 3D cameras to create a “visceral” gaming experience.[4]

In the game’s story and most minigame modes, ghosts will appear in the player’s environment, and will try to attack them. The player must use the Camera Obscura’s abilities to damage and defeat these spirits by photographing them with the L and R buttons. The player must also turn in all directions, as spirits hit by the camera will vanish and reappear beside or behind the player a few seconds later. Spirit Power, used for extra damage, can be charged by keeping the spirit within the camera reticle to charge the meter. The default Zero Lens is the only lens in the game that charges Spirit Power; all other lenses (mainly used for investigation) do not have this ability, though they can still be used in battle. Regardless of lenses, players can still halt a spirit’s attack by shooting when the camera reticle turns red.

Snapshot

Snapshot is the tale of a lone robot lost in an abandoned world. Armed with only his trusty camera, Pic sets forth on his great adventure. A camera might not seem like enough for a puzzle platforming adventure, but this camera is different from most: It has the ability to capture and remove from the world the very objects that it photographs. Not only that, but it can also use its powers to paste the photos it took back into the environment! Everything that the camera captures is perfectly preserved, and when the photos are restored the objects are restored with it. On top of all of that, this amazing camera can also rotate the photos before they’re pasted. Take a picture of an incoming fireball, rotate it and paste it to send it flying into a wall of heavy boxes to knock it out of the way.
