pirates game in 180 degrees 3D

Imagine an ego shooter in 3D. Fine. Now imagine its not just happening on your computer display. Much better - you are on an entire ship equipped with lots of cannons hunting pirates on the sea.
Yes. That is what we have done. 3D SFX expert Chris Keller created a whole CGI environment from the scratch for this interactive pirate game. I was in charge of the stereoscopic panorama projection and alignment.

Up to five player can now fight against pirates and sea monsters, firing cannons which are electronically connected to the game.
Even a steering wheel is in the wooden shipdeck room and one of the players will become helmsman.
This is really fun, especially as there is water, wind and lightning effects combined with an impressive sound installation.

To achieve a realistic feeling I combined three stereoscopic projections in panoramic alignment. Thus, you get an extremely wide field of view.
The awesome 5D pirates game is finished after two years work and now its installed on several locations along the german coastline.
