Street View is Now a Virtual World
Blue Mars, the 3D virtual world game, has created a smaller 'lite' world that uses Google Maps Street View to create the game environment. The game is called Blue Mars Lite and it looks very impressive.
In the game players can visit anywhere that has Street View in Google Maps. The player's avatar can then move around within the Street View. In the game you can meet with other players at real-world locations on Street View.
Players can meet and chat beside the Eiffel Tower, outside Buckingham Palace or anywhere else that they wish to visit. To meet up with a another player users simply have to find a location on Google Maps and share the location with other players.
