If Netflix’s new Carmen Sandiego series has you longing for the original game that started it all, you’ll be excited to discover that you can now play Where In the World Is Carmen Sandiego thanks to Google Maps.

Globe-trotting sleuths who have felt the Carmen Effect can go on the hunt for that elusive thief in red with a brand new series of games that will take place on Google Earth. Google Earth and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt have teamed up to release “The Crown Jewels Caper.”

The new game, which will be the first in a series, takes players on a journey around the globe tracking clues and solving cases, all in an effort to find Carmen Sandiego. Of course there will be plenty of exciting history and geography lessons along the way.

New fans will appreciate the high-tech images that Google Earth brings to the table, while nostalgic parents will love the green-hued nod to the old IBM computers they played the original game on as kids.
