Release the Retro!

Ah…the familiar streets of Singapore… or is it really? April Fool’s Day is here again, and knowing Google, there’s bound to something interesting once again. 2014 saw Pokemon being hidden all over Google Maps, and in 2013, there was a treasure map mode. Likewise, in the world of gaming, Blizzard has also joined in the foray of coming up with one of the best April Fools jokes!

PacMan on ??? street. Choose your map wisely, otherwise you will have a hell of a time controlling!

For 2015, Google Maps released PacMan on Google Maps. To play, simply access Google Maps and locate the PacMan on the bottom left-hand corner of the page. Click on it, and the maps are transformed into the retro PacMan game!

So what is Blizzard up to this year? This year’s joke is a spoof off the popular Heroes of the Storm arena game, in which all-stars from Blizzard’s games team up and battle one another. Called Blizzard: Outcasts, it is a hypothetical fighting game that features some of the lesser-known characters in Blizzard’s various universes.

Uh...oh?
Uh…oh?

The site is filled with interesting lines such as hilarious one-liners such as “I have no idea why you would doubt us, but yes, we are indeed making this game. For realsies”. Check them out yourself!
