Google “Text Adventure” easter egg hits Chrome browsers

Hello Adventurer!

If you’re looking for a bit of a time waster at work (or at home), maybe feeling a little adventurous? Google’s latest easter egg is perfect for you.


Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Open Google Chrome
  2. Do a Google Search for text adventure
  3. Press F12 to pull up the Developer Console

“Would you like to play a game” will appear on the screen.

“A strange tingle trickles across your skin. You feel lightheaded and sit down. Feeling better you stand up again and notice your reflection in a window. You are still the same big blue G you’ve always been and you can’t help but smile.

But wait! Where are your friends red o, yellow o, blue g, green l, and the always quirky red e?”

In Google Text Adventure, you control the capital G from Google — and you’re trying to hunt down your friends o, o, g, l, & e.

You’ll encounter characters like alligators blocking your way — you can even QUACK back at a duck!
