“The Life Stage: Virtual House” (1993), 3DO
/// I wish I came across this early 3D Construction / Interior Design Simulator when I was going through the history of the photo mode. No one talked about this game released by Panasonic for the 3DO system, but this was the cusp of a new wave of FMV games in the mid-90s.
There are definitely camera viewing options which I will show later, as well as immersive sample spaces to explore. Unlike some of the camera mechanics from earlier games like “Gekibo: Gekisha Boy” and “Night Trap,” this game actually has the 3D exploration gameplay that the photo mode was ultimately designed for.
