Dinosaur Game

The Google Chrome Browser has a hidden Dinosaur Game that can be played when you lose your internet connection. The game, also known as Chrome Dinosaur Game, No Wifi Game, No Internet Game, Google Dino, Dino Game, Google Dinosaur Game, No Internet Dinosaur Game, Trex Game, etc., was initially code-named "Project Bolan". This simple and addictive game was released in 2014, created by Sebastian Gabriel. It was originally built as an Easter Egg, and hidden as a built-in browser game in Google Chrome's No Internet connection error page.

The Dinosaur Game is from the endless runner genre, and features the famous TRex, who has become trapped in the desert. The dinosaur runs and avoids obstacles as the game speeds up and players progress further. The objective of the game is to avoid all obstacles (by jumping and ducking) and survive for as long as possible.

Dinosaur Game Origins

In 2018, Google finally discussed the game origins in an interview with Sebastien Gabriel, its developer. According to Sebastien, his Dinosaur Game is a nod to the prehistoric ages, millions of years before the technological boom.

The game was given the codename “Project Bolan,” which itself is a reference to Marc Bolan, the late lead singer of the legendary 1970’s rock band T-Rex.

In the early stages of game development, the developers thought: "What if it did a cute little kick in the beginning like our favorite 90’s hedgehog? What if it roared to signal to people that it was alive?" But in the end, they settled with creating a basic endless runner game, along with a dinosaur as the main feature, and only jump and duck controls. Simple yet addictively fun.

The game was first released in September 2014, but it was not fully completed and playable on all platforms until December of that year. Chrome users do not need to turn airplane mode on or disconnect their internet connection to enjoy playing the No Internet Game. Just type “chrome://dino” in the Google Chrome browser address line to play the game in full-screen mode.

The developers claim that the No Internet Game can last for almost an eternity. Or 17 million years to be exact, roughly how long the TRex was alive on Earth. "We built it to max out at approximately 17 million years, the same amount of time that the TRex was alive on Earth," said Chrome UX engineer Edward Jung. "But we feel like your spacebar may not be the same afterwards."
