I need a favour who can help,
For my new project I need people's voice saying hi,
so if you like help please record your voice as saying "hi" and send to

There's a indie game on the PlayStation network called "The Last Guy".  It's a zombie outbreak game and all of the game's maps are google earth images of Toyko.

If his whole game is based off of google map images and Sony allowed him to sell it on their network, then I would assume there wasn't any copyright issues.
This is a good information Thank you LN

Awesome Amadeus, good luck with your project!
Thank You!

If you like the simplistic look of Google's maps, you could always pay homage to that style by creating your own in photoshop or a vector art program.  They are simple shapes that would be easier to create than actually scrubbing all their watermarks off of a downloaded image.  Plus there's the added bonus of not getting in trouble for it, potentially.
Yea, I used google map as underlayer and created another map on another layer on top of underlayer. It looks good even better because it is not detailed as much as google map.

Although I don't know for sure and this source is not provided by google it may be a starting point for further research:

Storing of data
The Google Maps license does NOT allow to store the data received by Google permanently. This includes Geocoding data, but also maps and static maps. This is only allowed for caching, but not e.g. storing the data in an internal database and reuse it for different purpose. The restriction is applied for Google Maps API (free version), Google Maps API for Business and the Google Maps OEM license.

This s however regarding to the API and may be to protect from others downloading large pieces of the database. There are some links in the site to googles licensing that may be of help.

If you find something out it would be interesting to know what you come up with. As I understand it though you could dynamically get the image from google and use it in your game provided the game is free, but I am not a lawyer :)
I will not use any data I will use only image of a map of some town but thanks anyway

Resolved Questions / Re: When saving/loading some data is lost

Double check where to put saving and loading blocks
lets say I passed one level which changed some global data. if scene switches the another scene with loading block in it. You will get the not updated global data

Is there anybody know if it is illegal to use a google map image in a game ?
