Doctor Who Fans, or also known as ‘Whovians’, will be pleasantly surprised to see an 8-bit Doctor Who Game on Google’s homepage. The mini Doctor Who game initially went live on Google Australia, followed by Google New Zealand and is live on Google UK as well.
The reason for the tribute is the upcoming 50th anniversary episode, which marks 50 years of Doctor Who, a sci-fi UK based TV-show about an alien time-traveller (known as the ‘Timelord), who goes on adventures in his time travelling machine, the TARDIS.
And it seems like Google’s employees consists of a lot of ‘Whovians’ as well. An employee remarked that this Doodle is thus far the biggest interactive Doodle ever created by Google.
