Goodbye, productivity. Google’s Hong Kong and Taiwan home pages have added an interactive snake-doodle game in honor of Chinese new year. Your correspondent’s high score is 80, as touted in the image above.
Baidu has also embraced the New Year spirit, coincidentally in exactly the same manner as google. Clicking on the Baidu graphic also launches a version of the snake game, albeit one that is choppier and a bit rougher than Google’s.
But that’s not all! Even Sogou has gotten in on the fun, and has released—you guessed it—a snake game on their web search home page. Their version is significantly choppier than Baidu’s, but can still certainly eat up time at work.
High scores, as long as they are under 80, are encouraged in the comments.
