Google has been known for its clever mini-games over the years, ranging from the offline dinosaur endless runner game to hiding Pokemon throughout Google Maps. Now a new hidden Google text adventure game has been discovered, following in the spirit of classic text games like Zork: The Great Underground Empire and online MUDs. Here’s how interested gamers can access it.
Players will need Google Chrome in order to access the game. After opening Chrome, navigate directly to Google.com. Once on Google’s homepage, users must search for ‘text adventure.’ Once the search results page has loaded, press CTRL+SHIFT+J, or CMD+Option+J on Mac systems. A window should pop up on the right side of the page, and if done correctly, the game will appear and provide a prompt to type ‘yes’ to play. After typing yes in the bottom text field of the window, text will appear directing the player to the game’s scenario. It’s up to the player to find all the letters of Google that have gone missing.
