It looks like Dinosaurs might not be the only game Google added to its Chrome browser. A new text adventure game has been discovered by a Redditor.

The Game is rather simple and asks the players to follow a set of instructions to find the missing letters of the Google logo. The game was first discovered by u/attempt_number_1 and according to u/jeremyhoffman, the locations depicted in the game seem to correspond to “Google Mountain View buildings 45/47 on Charleston Road”. You can try out the game for yourself by following the instructions below.

  • Go to www.google.com and search for “Text Adventure”.
  • Let the search engine show results and then press F12 or Ctrl+Shift+I to open the Developer Console. Here you will see the game with the first question “Would you like to play a game? (yes/no)”
  • Type “Yes” in the console window to start the game.

The game appears to be working only when you open google.com and is not available on region-specific pages like google.co.uk or google.in. However, this shouldn’t stop you from spending some time with Google’s newfound riddles.
