Back in my day, a Google Doodle was a slight alteration of the Google Logo. Sometimes it would celebrate a holiday or famous person, but, for the most part, they were pretty simplistic. Now, a Google Doodle can be almost anything – a video, a short film, and in today’s case, a fully-featured JRPG inspired video game, complete with cutscenes, an amazing SNES-inspired soundtrack, and the cutest cat you ever did see! Enter Doodle Champion Island Games!
The game is actually pretty robust, featuring seven different sports to play, ranging from ping-pong to skateboarding. Are you cat enough to defeat all seven game masters and acquire the sacred scrolls? Only one way to find out!
While the premise seems pretty simplistic, I was shocked to see just how much love went into this project. Everything from the Yo-Kai Watch-esque intro to the absolutely banging soundtrack that gave me some serious Chrono Trigger vibes, Doodle Champion deserves a playthrough! You can even check out a developer diary below for some details on what went into the game’s creation!
