Google Doodle Game is a unique and temporary change to the Google home page’s logo to commemorate holidays, events, achievements, and notable historical figures.
Google’s first Doodle held the 1998 edition of the long-running annual Burning Man event in Black Rock City, Nevada.
Co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin developed it to notify users of their absence if they fail.
An outside contractor designed the following Google Doodles until 2001 when Page and Brin asked public relations officer Dennis Hwang to design a Bastille Day logo.
Since then, a team of people called “Doodlers” has organized and published the Doodles.
Initially, the doodles were neither animated nor linked; they were just images with floating text describing the topic or expressing a Christmas greeting.
Squiggles increased in both frequency and complexity in the early 2010s. In January 2010, the first animated squiggle honored Sir Isaac Newton.
The first interactive squiggle appears soon after to celebrate Pac-Man, and hyperlinks were also added to the squiggles, usually pointing to a search results page for the subject of the squiggle.
By 2014, Google had posted more than 2,000 regional and international doodles on its home pages, which often featured guest artists, musicians, and personalities.
By 2019, the “Doodlers” team had created more than 4,000 doodles for Google homepages worldwide.
