How did Google come up with the idea of running T-Rex?
When the same question has been asked to one of the inventor of Chrome dino run game, Sebastien Gabriel. He answered, the idea of ‘endless runner’ was born in early 2014. The game play was designed keeping in mind the ‘prehistoric age’ where there was no Wi-Fi. The first iteration of the ‘you-are-offline’ page was just the cacti and desert. While the visual graphics of the game is a nod to Google’s pixel-art style in Chrome’s error illustrations.
Allan, the co-inventor further added, the only challenge we faced is to keep the motion of the game rigid, and somewhat like which remind players of vintage video games. Firstly we thought to incorporate “a cute little kick” in the beginning just like the favourite 90’s hedgehog. But this idea got pull down in the end. Finally, we settled on the basics of any good dino runner game: run, duck and jump.
The T-Rex game also has a nickname, “Project Bolan”, which was given in honor of Marc Bolan, a legendary rock band of the 1970s. The authors claim that the game will last long as 17 million years just like the Tyrannosaurus were alive on earth.
