Yes! I love it. I street-viewed my house in all it's pixely 8-bit glory.

At first I thought they just took the map from Dragon Quest III and added a bunch of location names, but then I noticed that northern Asia wasn't covered in mountains and the starting continent is missing as well.

Bravo Google. Bravo.

In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

I wanna make Earth in 16-bit with...I dunno, I guess Chrono Trigger world map style.

Thanks Eusis.  I took this and shared it...likely to take credit for it as a hidden intent.

That's OK, I grabbed it from Neogaf anyway.

I haven't seen any monsters or creatures except for two knight looking dudes standing where our downtown is.

Your home looks nice in 8 bit, just be careful that in 8 bit anyone can freely enter your house and get some items!

Cracked me up when they hooked it up, turned it on, it looked all crappy, and they had to blow on it. :D

Naw.  It's a locked house.  You have to get the key by going through the Cave of Solitude.  But you need a boat to get there, and the Captain for it is lost in the Fargonian Woods a continent over that's under Imperial Civil War.  Time for a quest? :D
