Jul 23, 2021


Due to the Pandemic-felt-Round-The-World, the 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympics were postponed. However as precautions, preparations and possibly most importantly vaccine(s) have been put in place the Olympic Games are beginning. Today, July 23, 2021 marks the start of the competition. Geeks WorldWide may find themselves uninterested in the competitions unless you’re cheering on a favorite country or a specific sport. Fortunately, the staff at Google, along with STUDIO4°C, have provided a Doodle (and 8-bit game) that captures the excitement of the Summer Olympics and helps everyone experience the thrill of it’s competitive nature, whether it be the thrill of Vi-cat-ory or the agony of De-feline-t.

No, I “meow” not stuck playing that game from Super Troopers. I am just preparing you to meet the star attra-cat-tion (last one I hope for your sakes and my sanity). Allow me to introduce Lucky.

Meet the (C)athelete Lucky

As the video highlights Lucky crosses the sea and arrives upon the shores of Doodle Champion Island. After walking around the pavilion and taking in all the sites Lucky comes upon the gates to the competition. It is there she meets the mascots for the 4 teams Lucky (and the player) can choose to join. They are:

The video also features a preview of the legendary competitors Lucky will face while on Doodle Champion Island. Here are the competitors and their sports:

Google and STUDIO4°C promise players that over the coming weeks we will witness (and most importantly play as) Lucky as she competes in the Doodle Champion Island Games. In addition to seven (7) sport mini-games there are also rumors of side quests and friends (both new and old) for Lucky to encounter.

Can you help Lucky defeat each legendary Champion and collect the seven (7) sacred scrolls. Head over to the Google home page and click on the doodle to start. Join a team, move up the leaderboard and experience Lucky (and your) c-adventure (I tried).
