Hey all, recently I installed the Minecraft .jar and played it. It's a bit of fun, but the coolest thing about it IMO has been the anaglyph 3D option. Yay, a ViewMaster game! Anyway, I'm looking for other anaglyph 3D games and apps. I understand that there's an anaglyph plugin for Compiz as well, although it apparently is an inactive project since 2008.

An anaglyph interface for Blender would be severely awesome, right?

Actually, let's open it up a bit- I'm looking for stereoscopic games in general, so anaglyph, blue/red, or other filter-type things all are fair game. Feel free to post about shutter glasses too, although hardly anyone has them. Polaroids are out unless someone knows a way to selectively polarize pixels on a computer screen. – koanhead Sep 19 '10 at 23:26

the anaglyph plugin for compiz will make 3D depth between overlapping windows (seeing as there's no point in minimizing/maximizing windows anyway, it's kinda cool to see depth distance between the windows in anaglyph), however it won't make things within a given window 3D. I played around with it back when and found it enjoyable, but I hate to mess around with compiz considering how fragile it is, especially since Unity. – titaniumtux Mar 12 '12 at 4:53

Thanks for the post! Still waiting to hear about anaglyph stuff though... – koanhead Oct 3 '10 at 7:56
