Video game to create real combat environment using Google Earth

US: Earthling Technology is developing a new video game, Geoception, which aims to leverage the technology of Google Earth to offer players the largest explorable map in video game history. Geoception allows players to command and control UAVs and other combat drones in a realistic manner, anywhere in the world.

Tactical scenarios and missions can be dynamically generated at any location on the globe, providing challenging targets such as armed personnel, moving vehicles, and rooftop sentry guns. Successful completion of missions earns rewards and medals, with the ultimate goal being to establish total global security.

All game actors can be easily replaced with virtually any Sketchup/3D models of the player”s choosing, allowing a totally customisable gaming experience. Google Earth imagery provides a real game map and environment to the players.
