Google crowns Venezuelan champion of Chrome's dinosaur game
The American multinational Google today crowned Cristian Azuaje, a 22-year-old Venezuelan, as champion of the Chrome dinosaur game.
"I started playing hoping that the connection would return and well, you know: he never came back"
Cristian, who was expelled from the university because the Internet connection did not allow him to finish any work, did not hide his emotion at the award and assured: “The truth is I am very surprised. I never expected to win. What's more, I didn't even know he was competing. I was just tired of resetting the router and yelling Damn the Internet! so I resigned myself and started playing hoping that the connection would return and well, you know: it never came back, but I became a sadist. It got faster and faster, pterodactyls appeared to me, it got dark, it snowed, the dinosaur got married, had children, got divorced and eventually even died. I dedicate this award to my mother, who always trusted me ”, affirmed Cristian Azuaje, who also thanked CANTV for the award for the bad connection.
When you navigate in Chrome on your computer and you are left without an internet connection, "you have two soups": you connect with your cell phone or you start playing T-Rex Run!
Dino Game or Google's Dinosaur Game is the latest easter egg that no one wants to miss. The hidden pixelated dinosaur of the Chrome browser was a success since its leak, with each update and until its latest version.
With Chrome Dino you can run, jump and duck and get to increase your score, but wouldn't it be more fun to face obstacles instead of just avoiding them?
Dino Game and the adorable pixelated T-Rex are so loved by fans that many have made versions of the game, such as jumping in real life for the T-Rex to clear the obstacle. However, the mods are not too far removed from the original because we love its retro vibe.
But now Google's hidden dinosaur runner game that pops up in Chrome when people are offline has a new version: Dino Swords.
Dino Swords, is the modified version of T-Rex Run and was created by one between the Internet collective MSCHF and 100 Thieves. These two studies gave this dinosaur a wide variety of weapons to use.
So the T-Rex will no longer just have to evade obstacles, he will now be able to use weapons against cacti. The weapons are linked to various keys that players can use, but that's not all, there are more Easter eggs!
Some of the weapons will cause self-harm i.e. they cause the T-Rex to self-harm. The creators warn that there are countless Easter eggs or hidden surprises in the game. In addition to the surprises there will also be recognitions as "the best sword player" and prizes (it is a surprise).
There are 26 different weapons to discover, all with hotkeys to a different letter on your keyboard. Like the original, it keeps score and that score lands on a world leaderboard. At the end of a week, the highest score wins a prize.
With this version, the Dino game feels like a classic web browser game from a previous era, 100 Thieve director said "Dino Swords is our version of the classic Chrome dinosaur racing game, extravagant with 26 weapons to help you on your races. Many of them pay homage to the weapons of classic video games. (...) there are some Easter eggs that are quite difficult to unlock. "
