Someone made an actual toy-diorama of Google’s offline browser game!

Now isn’t this the coolest thing ever! Designed to commemorate the 10 year anniversary of Google Chrome, New York-based artist Andrew Bell created this absolutely adorable box-set of Chrome’s most amazing Easter egg… the offline browser game.

For the people who don’t know what this game is about (basically Safari users), the game starts as a webpage that tells you that your browser is offline. Press any key, and the game initiates, and you’re tasked with getting the dinosaur to jump over cacti, and under flying pterodactyls. Your high score gets recorded on the top corner.

Bell’s toy set captures the key elements of the game. While there are no pterodactyls in the box set (also because they make their appearance later on in the game), the set actually stays incredibly true to its inspiration. You’ve got the dinosaur, four different cacti, and the box is designed to serve as the backdrop too! The box comes with a reversible design, with the starting message on the face, and the game-over message on the back… and the jumping Dino is reversible too! Turn it over and the Dino comes with the familiar wide-eyed expression its digital avatar has when it lands on a cactus, triggering the end of the game!
