Google wants to help cure your boredom with its most popular Doodle games

Google is going to do its part to help cure your boredom by showcasing a popular game from a past Doodle every day.

Over the years, Google has featured an impressive number of games and minigames on its homepage, all of which have been carefully preserved and archived on the Google Doodle Blog. Starting April 27 and running for two weeks, Google is launching a new series of ten Doodles, each one a callback to one of the company’s popular games.

As COVID-19 continues to impact communities around the world, people and families everywhere are spending more time at home. In light of this, we’re launching a throwback Doodle series looking back at some of our popular interactive Google Doodle games!

The first day’s featured popular Google Doodle game, “Coding for Carrots,” dates back to 2017, and originally celebrated the 50th anniversary of Logo, the first ever programming language designed for use by children. In the game, you’ll create simple combinations of commands that will tell your rabbit how to collect the carrots on each level. If you or your children are particularly interested in today’s throwback Doodle, consider introducing them to Scratch, a kid-oriented programming language which the game is loosely based on.

As for why Google is staggering the games out over the two week period, you may remember that some of the best and most popular Doodles in the last few years have actually had multiplayer support. For example, the Google Doodle in celebration of the Mexican bingo-like game Lotería allowed you to compete either with just your friends or with random players online. By staggering them out, Google can ensure each day’s focused game has a variety of players.

Combined with the recent decisions to make Stadia free for two months and feature Stadia on the Google.com homepage, it’s clear that Google believes that promoting gaming is one of the most effective ways to encourage people to “Stay Home. Save Lives.”
