For mapping shops selling games of various types, see Tag:shop=games.

Several games have already been built using OpenStreetMap data, enabling the creation of games set in the real world.

Related topics are Simulators (more serious use of OSM in interactive worlds) and Gamification (making OSM mapping feel more like playing a game by applying game design techniques).

Games using OpenStreetMap data

For services around the games

Game map converters

  • Cities:Skylines - OSM import
  • Minecraft - At least one person has generated blocky 3D minecraft maps from OSM data
  • SuperTuxKart - Map importing based on osm2world
  • The Golf Club 2019 - Allows you to create your own golf course and play it in the video game. Using the mapped data from OpenStreetMap greatly improves the accuracy of the course re-creations. These course re-creations can then be used in golf simulators. (This forum thread has some more information.)
