Chrome developer Sebastien Gabriel says that their no internet game is the nod to the prehistoric ages, millions of years before the technological boom. And the game’s pixel style is the reference to Google browser’s error illustrations.
Chrome dinosaur offline game got the nickname “Project Bolan” in honor of Marc Bolan, the frontman of “T-Rex’, a legendary rock band of the 1970s. While designing the game, the engineers thought about allotting Dino more features like roaring and kicking but refused this idea to keep the game maximally simplistic or “prehistoric”.
The T-Rex game was first introduced in September 2014, but it did not work on earlier Android OS versions so that Google developers fully completed their brainchild only by December that year.
Now you don’t need to turn Airplane Mode on or disconnect your Internet connection to relish Chrome Dino playtime. Just type “chrome://dino” in the browser address line to start this game in a full window!
The authors claim that this arcade can last as long as 17 million years – exactly for this period, Tyrannosaurus Rex dinosaurs were alive on Earth!
