Photo Stitches and Adventure Games

On Laurens' blog I saw he had stitched several photo's together to generated QuickTime VR files, which give a view of 4pi steradians. He has some nice stitches of his room, the Zernikeborg and several other locations in Groningen. Might this make a nice three dimensional successor to the classical point-and-click Sierra On-Line adventure games, using locations from your neighbourhood?

Did you know that the newer games in the Myst series (that is, Myst III: Exile and IV: Revelations, if I remember correctly) already use this technique? Very worthwhile games too, I might add.

But as you say, unfortunately there is no decent (read: usable) free photo stitching software, nor any engine to put these things into a game.
