dinther writes "Today the program "Ships" has been released. "Ships" is a significant program because it is the first serious application that uses Google Earth as a game engine. In "Ships" you take control of a a selection of ships and drive them around the world (If you have that much time) Building games around Google Earth is now viable thanks to the ever increasing detail in Google Earth. Technically the Google Earth browser plugin has proven to be quite a capable platform to work with.
