A Dinosaur Story

@ December 18, 2017


In 2013 Google updated the Chrome web browser with a brand new error screen, that would pop up whenever users would experience an internet shortage.

Besides the message that there is no internet connection, and a few suggestions for diagnostics, the screen also displayed an image of a T-Rex standing still on a desert plain.

The next year, Chrome users would find that they could actually activate an easter egg game with the dinosaur, simply by pressing the space-bar on their keyboard, or tapping on the screen if they were using a smartphone.

The Google Chrome T-Rex icon was designed by Sebastien Gabriel, a visual designer who is also known for designing other Chrome icons, one of them being the ‘’Chrome Repair Bot’’. The offline game was entirely coded by Google developer Edward Jung.

The dinosaur game is an infinite runner that has no time limitations or scripted epilogue. You basically go for as long as you can, and while doing so, hopefully forget about the frustrations of dealing with one of the biggest first world problems.
