This article is about game maps. For the IF Comp 2015 entry, see Map (by Ade).

The geography of a game as represented internally by the story file, or a diagram (provided by the designer as a feelie or in-game graphic; or sketched by the player) representing it. Such a diagram typically features boxes and lines indicating rooms and the connections between them, and may also also include annotations indicating the objects to be found in those rooms.
