This was just a silly little Java applet that I made
one year for Google as their Easter holiday feature.
I thought it would be really cool to link the
theme of the Easter Bunny and
the idea of an egg hunt,
with its connotations of "searching",
to the minimalist multi-colored Google iconography,
which I think is extremely elegant and pretty.
So I made a "search" game - you
have to help the Easter Bunny get
eggs into his basket.
But you have to do it in
the proper order,
so that the eggs spell out the word "Google".
For me it was mostly a design challenge - making the applet as visually simple as possible, while still capturing the "inner bunny" in a way that would properly convey his his singular struggle, his eternal perserverence, his existential triumph. Maybe I'm overthinking this...
Anyway, I didn't want to make it too difficult, because an awful lot of people use Google, and most of them are not serious gamers, merely seekers after knowledge and truth.
