Happy Birthday Tetris!

June 6, 2009

25 years ago – June 6th, 1984 to be exact – Alexey Pajitnov created a simple puzzle video game where you moved blocks around (called tetrominoes) to create horizontal lines of blocks to eliminate rows and gain points. tetris-bday

Know what game I’m talking about yet? I’m referring to Tetris, one of the world’s most popular and best-selling video games of all time.

This classic game has been a time-wasting staple for millions of people worldwide. And, as of June 6th, it will become 25 years old. We weren’t reminded of this momentous occasion by our video game knowledge, though. We were reminded…by Google. It seems that they, too, are lovers of the funny-shaped blocks and are redesigning all of their logos in celebration. Take a look below to see what’s going on:

Time to crack open that box of dust and fluff and merk the oldskool Gameboy. Couple of hours of block building should satisfy my Saturday afternoon of footie withdrawal symptoms.
