Google’s hidden Dinosaur runner game that pops up in Chrome when people are offline is a treasured Easter egg for Chrome users, but it was arguably in need of an update.
Enter a modded version of the game called Dino Swords, created by a partnership between Internet collective MSCHF and 100 Thieves that gives the adorable, granulated T-Rex an assortment of weapons to use. Weapons are bound to various keys that players can use, but there’s a catch. Some of the weapons will lead to self-inflicted damage (I found out during one of my play-throughs of the modded version).
Google’s “Dino game is the final holdover from the golden age of things like Addicting Games and Miniclip games,” Daniel Greenberg, MSCHF’s head of strategy, told The Verge, adding that modding the game is “just making it truer to form.” That much feels true. With the modded update, the Dino game feels like a classic web browser game from an earlier era, when mini Flash games dominated the time I spent in the computer lab with friends.
“Dino Swords is our take on the classic Chrome dinosaur runner game, made extravagant with 26 weapons to help your runs,” Matthew “Nadeshot” Haag, 100 Thieves owner and CEO, said. “Many of them pay homage to classic video game weapons, some of them are totally OP, and some are completely useless. There’s even a few easter eggs that are pretty hard to unlock.”
The arsenal being introduced in the game is almost ridiculous, but the 100 Thieves team is hoping that people who play the game will put it goo use. There are “some awesome prizes for the people who are able to show they’re the best Dino Swords players in the world,” Nadeshot said in his statement, although it’s unclear what those prizes are. The Verge has reached out for more information.
Chrome’s Hidden Dinosaur Game Just Got Even Better
The Google Chrome dinosaur game is a fun way to kill some time and lower your blood pressure when the internet is acting up.
But ask yourself this: has the trundling T-Rex had it a little to easy? Is hopping over a few spiky desert cactus a bit too chill?
Google thinks so.
A recent browser update introduces a new obstacle to the desolate desert landscape. An obstacle one with teeth, claws and plenty of bite: pterodactyls!
Gamers who clear enough cactus to reach 450 points will then contend with flying pterodactyls as well as cacti.
Squarrrrr! (…is a noise I’m assuming flying dinosaurs made).
Give the updated game a try yourself (either by turning your Wi-Fi off and loading a page in Chrome, or by setting ‘network‘ to ‘offline‘ in Chrome developer tools > mobile.
Hit the space bar to trigger the game, and use the ‘up’ key to jump over and the ‘down’ key to duck them.
What obstacles, dinosaurs or power-ups would you throw into the mix if you were in charge?
Google Chrome dinosaur game easter eggs
Video game built into Google Chrome
The Dinosaur Game (also known as the Chrome Dino) is a built-in browser game in the Google Chrome web browser. The player guides a pixelated Tyrannosaurus rex across a side-scrolling landscape, avoiding obstacles to achieve a higher score. The game was created by Sebastien Gabriel in 2014, and is intended to be accessed by hitting the space bar when Google Chrome is offline.
When the Chrome browser is offline, and a user tries to navigate to a web page, the browser notifies the user that they are not connected to the Internet. An illustration of the "Lonely T-Rex" dinosaur is shown at the top, designed by Sebastien Gabriel. Tapping the dinosaur in Android or iOS, or pressing or on desktop, launches the game. The game can also be accessed by typing or into the URL bar.
During gameplay, a running dinosaur moves from left to right across a desert landscape, and the player avoids oncoming obstacles by jumping or ducking, including cacti and pterodactyls. Pressing or will jump, and will duck (mobile users can only press the space bar to jump). As gameplay progresses, the speed of play increases until the user cannot keep up and hits an obstacle, prompting an instant game over. as player progresses every 100 points your score total will flash.
When the player reaches 500 points, the Pteranodons start to come into play. then at 600 points the game switches from black graphics on black, to black graphics on blue , representing a shift from day to night. Reaching a score of 700 points will switch the color scheme back, and will switch back and forth at subsequent milestones, about 100 points each "night and day"  The game was designed to reach a maximum score after approximately 17 million years of playtime, in reference to how long the Tyrannosaurus rex existed before it went extinct.
If an administrator disables the dinosaur game, an error message appears when attempting to play the game, featuring a picture of a meteor heading towards the dinosaur.
History and development
During development, the game was given the codename of "Project Bolan", in reference to the lead singer Marc Bolan of the 1970s band T. Rex. The game was released in September 2014 but failed on performance for older devices. The game's code was re-written and re-released in December 2014. Four years later, the game celebrated its fourth birthday with themed decoration.
For Google Chrome's 10th birthday, an Easter egg was added to the game: during September 2018, a birthday cake could appear in the desert. When eaten, a birthday hat would appear on the dinosaur. In November 2018, Google introduced a feature to save player scores. The game's code is available on the Chromium site.
An "in-depth" Easter egg was also added to the game for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, simulating various Olympic activities.
In August 2020, MSCHF and 100 Thieves partnered to create a modified version of the game called Dino Swords. Dino Swords features a small arsenal of weapons and time-slowing pills. When mismanaged, the weapons can backfire and harm the dinosaur.
The base game received widespread recognition, with the creators revealing that 270 million games are played monthly.

I walked over to the short young woman, making out her quite pleasant full chest, splattered in the hollow with freckles. Her nipples, rather small for the size of her breasts and pink like strawberries, stuck out almost vertically. I went over and pretended to accidentally touch her; but as soon as I did, she took my hand and placed it on her warm belly.

But she did not show it, only accelerated, greedily swallowing a member almost entirely. After a few seconds of this torture, he just broke, and moved his hips towards her lips. The jerks went one after another, he was shaking pretty, and he already finished right in her wonderful mouth.
