We’ve covered quite a few different games for Google Earth before, but we’re always on the lookout for more. A new project by Dustin at AlterEarth.net has a lot of potential, and we thought we’d share it with you.
Here’s what Dustin has to say about the site:
The concept is this: a free gaming site using Google Earth as the platform where users can play games, create and submit their own games, and edit current games to improve their functionality / features. I’ve created only a couple games for the site thus far, but over time that number will grow as users begin to submit their own games and I can focus more on the site development side of things. One of the games I’ve created is a grand theft auto style game, which I chose because I think it would get people interested and excited about the concept.
The games still seem to be quite buggy, but the idea of building a platform like this is a great idea. It seems to use a lot of the code from Monster Milktruck, which is probably a good place to start.
Here’s a video that shows off what their “Grand Theft Auto” game looks like:
You can try the GTA game here, or try “Ski Earth” here. He also appears to have a “Zombie Earth” and a “Godzilla” game in progress, but there aren’t any details on those yet.
If you try any of them for yourself, leave a comment below and let us know what you think. Also, if you find (or create) and other Google Earth based games, please contact us and we’ll check them out!
