Use Google Maps as Your Website UI
BTWXT Games is using the Google Maps API as the main navigation user interface for their location-based games website.
In the past we've seen websites such as Invisible Playground and Google Maps Road Trip use Google Maps as a background for a website page. BTWXT Games, however, is a little different as it actually uses different map overlays almost as a replacement for different pages on the website.
When you first load the website the Google Map is centred on an overlay with links to two of the location-based games available from BTWXT Games. If you click on either link the map pans to another overlay with information about that game.
