Date: 2018-09-06

Google recently redesigned Chrome for its 10th anniversary, which saw a tonne of new features, but the dinosaur easter egg isn’t available until your Internet decides to go offline.

Chrome’s offline "dinosaur game" has been updated to include a surprise easter egg, which is a befitting birthday cake that can be picked up near the start of the game. This will put a jaunty little party hat onto the T-Rex, which even has tassels moving in the wind when your little pixeled-dinosaur is running and jumping over all the cactus.

While it’s a bit difficult to see, balloons will also be drawn into the background where clouds would usually be.

This new feature works on both the desktop and mobile versions of Chrome's offline dinosaur game, and you can see it running on the Samsung Galaxy Note 9. If it doesn’t work you may need to update to the latest version of Chrome, and remember to make sure your WiFi is offline or unplug the router, as well as switch your mobile data off.

This new easter egg works with the other addition made to the game back in 2016. The day-night cycle is still present and, when it changes to night, the party hat will change colours from blue/purple/red/green, which you can see in the gif below.

Despite being a funny little easter egg, it still gives you something to do when the Internet decides to go offline, we’re glad to see the game got these little additions over the years.
