20,000 Leagues Inside the "G"

It’s Tuesday, February 8th, in the year two-thousand and eleven! What a wonderous time in history this is.

Actually, that's not true. It’s Wednesday the 9th, and I’m a little slow on the draw—but I think the father of science fiction (arguably) would be inclined to forgive a little time travel. Yesterday, Google published a special doodle on their homepage in honor of Jules Verne's 183rd birthday featuring a 20,000 Leagues-inspired underwater image behind the Google logo. While perhaps not a game in the fullest sense of the word, the image was complete with a little joystick that allowed one to “pilot” the logo around the image (and in so doing, find some cool undersea goings-on like the one pictured above). If nothing else, it would seem to indicate that some people at Google really love what they do.

If you missed it, you can check out the full (and functional) image here.
