Microsoft’s Flash Virtual Earth Game

 

http://www.livederby2007.com/

I just learned from http://www.clickz.com/3626708 that Microsoft has released an online driving game, similar to Pac-Man, where users tool around cities that use Virtual Earth imagery as their basemap.  You can choose a particular city then a driver (one monster truck driver looks strikingly like Mandy Moore).  It looks like an effort to drive traffic to Local.Live with an added benefit of en-fun-izing it.  The game is peppered with links to Local.Live proper, for example, typing in an address or place name into the familiar search bar launches a Local.Live map and the "tell a friend" email link launches a permalink.

         

In any case, it is fun.  My son, Bear, (who is too young to already have entire sections of his brain relegated to Pac Man strategies) will love it.
