Google Earth Games
A few gus from Intel bent on pushing the boundaries of PC gaming decided to try and develop a video game using Google maps as their primary platform, their end result was “Mars Sucks.”
We decided to overlay an image of a Martian craft cockpit over the Google Earth window and let the standard Google Earth controls handle moving around the globe. In the cockpit, players see a sequence of clues about the location of each Martian invader. Each clue gets more specific about where to find the Martian.
