The Google we know now is a huge high tech Silicon Valley company but that’s not how things started. The company began as a search engine, a simple website with a search box. However, the Google search service was not as boring as it seems. Some users have actually discovered that there’s a full-text adventure game well hidden on Google.com but in order to access it, you will need to know the secret method.
The first step of course is getting the right browser. Google Chrome, in this case, is a good option but you can also use Mozilla or Edge. Safari users will have to try another time because the browser doesn’t support the game. Once you are on your browser, simply Google the term “text adventure.” The page will display a list of many games but they are not relevant here. Just right click on the screen, and select “inspect.” On the menu that pops up, you will see the “console” option, click it. A small note will then appear asking you if you would like to play a little game. On the prompt text box just type yes and press enter. That should do it.
The game will take you through an enlightening adventure as you explore Google’s campus to try and find the company’s letters. A text adventure game is not like the traditional games that most people are used to. In these games, you control your character by typing in simple commands. The commands then determine how you will progress in the various puzzles available. For example, if you decide to type “north”, your character will head that way. The same also applies if you decide to type any other direction. Some commands like “grab” and “use” may also offer different experiences. For example, when you write “grab” your character will start to interact with items in the game.
At first, a text adventure game sounds a little complicated because it doesn’t come with the graphics and sounds of modern gaming. However, once you get how it is played, you will soon start to enjoy it. Some users are in fact finding themselves glued into the game once they start playing to the extent of forgetting what they were going to do online in the first place. The Google text adventure game has been here for some time now but only a select few people have been able to discover it and play it. Well, now you know how to get there. Give it a try and see how it goes. Just to give you some advice, give the game time. If you are new to text adventure games you will need a few minutes to catch on. But once you get it, you will truly enjoy. The game is also free to play and doesn’t require any sign-up or log in. You just Google it and play it.
