The game, which is hidden inside Google’s source code, prompts players with “Would you like to play a game? (yes/no).”
From there, it cautions users to give one-word commands or directions such as “grab” or “use” or “up” or “east,” for example.
Players are in the role of the capital “G” from the Google logo, and are given their mission: “But wait! Where are your friends red o, yellow o, blue g, green l, and the always quirky red e?”
We tried it out on a few domains, and it works whether you’re on Google’s .com or .co.uk or .co.jp site despite earlier reports stating it was only available on the “.com” domain. It appears to work as long as your interface is set to English.
The game is said to take from about 30 to 60 minutes to complete, enjoy!
