Dennis Roberts: Orthographic Camera Experiment

I’ve always wondered what a first-person orthographic game would be like, so this week I decided to find out. I’m not really sure what I was expecting, but the result is definitely pretty confusing. Technically it’s a first person controller, but it was too confusing without any representation of where you are in the world, so I added the little orange tic-tac in there.
I played around with it a lot, changing how much was in frame, locking the camera or letting it move, etc, but in the end I don’t really see any applications for this. But that’s what experiments are for, right?
