8-Bit Video Game fans rejoice! In what appears to be an April Fools joke, Google added a pretty neat feature to Google Maps called Quest. Here is the description:
- View 8-bit landmarks
- Be a hero, explore the world
- Find hidden monsters
8-bit Quest Maps is our Beta Maps technology and has certain system requirements. Your system may not meet the minumum requirements for 8-bit computations.
I am not sure how long this feature will last, but if your house is already on Google Street View, check it out in 8-Bit. I’m not going to post images of mine, but it’s pretty surreal. I didn’t start my quest yet, but I did grab some LB landmark screenshots for your viewing pleasure:
