GoogleGoogle’s known for changing its homepage logo to celebrate special occasions, but today brings a new first: a playable game in the logo’s place –- specifically, a game of Pacman to mark the its 30th anniversary.
The game is just as addictive as the original, and as Google’s Marcin Wichary says, “[We] made sure to include PAC-MAN’s original game logic, graphics and sounds, bring back ghosts’ individual personalities, and even recreate original bugs from this 1980s masterpiece.”
The company even changed its “I’m Feeling Lucky” button to “Insert Coin” in honor of the occasion. And with that, the world’s collective productivity takes a sharp plunge on this Friday.
