Google reveals the hidden truth to the mysterious Google doodles
Google has today spoken out about the recent unexplained set of 'alien-based' doodles on their homepage, confirming the set of 3 were in fact based upon the works of Herbert George Wells and in honour of his 143rd birthday.
The doodles, which began appearing on the 5th September were all based upon 'unexplained phenomonens' and got the world talking and thinking about the reason behind the image with the Guardian eventually guessing the real reason behind the works.
So what did they all mean? The first doodle, on September 5, was based on a line from a Japanese video game called Zero Wing Google says, and was revealed from a coded Tweet sent out from Google's Twitter account on the exact same day.
Meanwhile the second doodle, sent out on the 15th September, was a UFO hovering above some fields with the Google logo embossed in them. This Google says, was simply an image, and the real clue was tweeted out as the latittude and longitute co-ordinates of the Horsell Commons, where the first aliens landed in H.G.'s The War of Worlds.
And today, across the world, Google have dedicated the doodle to Herbet, an English author, well known for his work in the science fiction, finally linking to results on the man and bringing the series to an end. Micheal Lopez, a Web Design Lead at Google says the series was created "to celebrate H.G. Wells as an author who encouraged fantastical thinking about what is possible, on this planet and beyond."
