I'm working on a Java web based game in my spare time (springMVC / JSPs etc), and I'm wondering what are my options for dealing with the "game world" or mapping element.

My game will be 2d / text based, so I have no need for any OpenGL / Flash etc.

My initial idea was to use Google maps and provide a custom overlay, but I want to know if there are any alternatives?

For example, if I create a 2d map with all my zones, are there any libraries that will help me plot players, work out distances and so forth?

Regards

  • \$\begingroup\$ Dont care about graphics, I'm making a simple Java web based game (using JSP / JSTL etc). I'm looking for a library or something I can use to handle maps, i.e., where players are on a map, where towns are, where people can travel to etc. \$\endgroup\$
