Google released an entertaining StarCraft-related easter egg today, for reasons unknown yet. To see it, just go to and search “zerg rush”. Your search results will be attacked by a bunch of “zerglings” which will group up at the end to spell out GG.

Update: There are several sites now saying that a Google spokesperson gave out this quote:

“For n00bs who aren’t as familiar with real-time strategy games, there’s been a zerg rush on your search results page. Because there should always be time to practice your gaming skills, click on the zerg units to defend the results page and try not to get pwned. Then you can share you APM score on Google+. GLHF!”

So apparently you can kill those “zerglings” by clicking on them to get a high score and post on Google+. I read somewhere that this whole thing might have been created to be a promotion for Google+. Anyway, I think it’s pretty cool that Google made something for us StarCraft fans.
