“Heroic Doom Mod Adds 37 Instagram Filters And A Selfie Stick” by Mike Fahey, 2/15/15
After almost 22 years Doom is finally finished thanks mod-maker Linguica’s “InstaDoom”, which adds 37 InstaGram filters to the game and swaps out the fabled BFG with a selfie stick.
Once the filter is applied, players can rush through the first level to the location that once held a chainsaw but now holds the legendary Selfie Stick. Linguica swapped out chainsaw and BFG locations throughout the game, and replaced the powerful projectile weapon with a stick with a pixel rendition of Doomguy on the end.
Pictura is a photography game where you use you phone as a window into different worlds. Take pictures to trigger events, find creatures, and progress through different settings.
Pictura is an exploration game where your phone acts as a window to a virtual world, supporting both touch and accelerometer controls
Using a virtual camera as a main gameplay mechanic, Pictura has you taking pictures which you can then sell to upgrade your camera, adopt new pets and travel to new locations. Each world is littered with hidden events, triggers, puzzles, simple story elements and easter eggs for you to find.
Pictura has a general calm vibe combined with a few adventurous moments. The visual style is driven by photography elements, meaning it is rich in post-effects. Different lenses, filters and camera can help personalize the look and feel of each pic.
Each world has its unique setting, challenges and moments of awe. Following a semi-episodic format, a new world will present its own set of challenges, puzzles, surprises, visual style and minimalist story line.
The Sims 4 (Maxis, The Sims Studio, 2014) has a dedicated simulation of commercial photography in “The Sims 4 Get to Work Expansion Pack” (2015).
The Photography Skill comes with The Sims 4 Get to Work expansion pack. From a phone to a fancy camera. Sims who are skilled in Photography will have greater success as they hone their skills by taking lots of pictures, upgrading their equipment, experimenting with picture settings and using the In a Flash Photo Studio. Take photos of one Sim or 2 Sims. You can take photos of adult Sim but you also have the option to take photos of kids. When you are taking the picture you will have the option to choose filter, size or a backdrop but you can’t change poses if you are taking the photo. To change the pose you need to take a new picture.
You can buy 3 different digital camera’s: Barely Better Digital Camera, Crystal Clear Digital Camera and the Appreciably Average Digital Camera. The higher the price the better the digital camera.
Do a number of things with Photos taken, such as hanging them on walls, selling them in retail stores, or converting Photos to Memories. You also have the option to give the photo a name.
Photography Skill Levels
The Photography skill only has 5 levels and doesn’t really unlock anything. The only thing it does is that you can take better quality photo’s you can sell for a higher price.
Photography skill will allow to capture the world around. The road to creating photographic masterpieces takes some time but the higher the skill level the better photos.
Don’t forget those selfies!
The quality of the camera matters! Cheaper cameras are great to learn with but spending a few more Simoleons buys a camera that can zoom and take larger pictures.
You can earn extra Simoleons by taking pictures of other Sims using the In a Flash Photo Studio.
Open a photo gallery to share (and sell) photography art with other Sims!
Tearaway is an indie game released in 2013 for PS VITA. In its gameplay the main character is given a camera to take in-game photographs. The photos do not actually complete missions or game objectives, but throughout the game additional camera features (lenses and filters) can be unlocked. Pictures taken within the game can be saved and shared.
You’ll be awarded the camera early in the game, it comes with kit lens, with a nice depth of field, and you can get snapping straight away. To unlock new lenses and special filters, you’ll need to collect confetti; little colourful bits of paper you’ll see throughout the world. You can spend this confetti on numerous things, including camera items.
There are five additional lenses to collect, each brings something different. There’s the Macro lens for close-ups, a zoom lens for capturing distant scenes, a high speed lens for fast moving objects, a wide angle for capturing more of the scene, and finally, the Quantum Lens, for capturing photos of the real world using the PS Vita’s front and rear cameras.
On top of the different lenses, you can unlock a set of filters help you get super arty. These filters could be warming or, cooling, put everything into negative or turn a scene black and white… There are 15 filters in total, all with their own special effects and properties.
Once you’ve taken a snap you’re particularly proud of, you can share it with your friends via Facebook or Twitter, or with the world at large via our Tearaway community website.
