Google Doodle celebrates Roswell UFO incident's 66th anniversary


Today, Google celebrated the 66th anniversary of the Roswell UFO incident with their newest doodle, delighting conspiracy theorists the world over.

Delivered in the form of a small point-and-click adventure game, you play the role of a small alien-like character that moves around the Roswell town, collecting parts to rebuild your space ship and fly away.

This isn’t the first doodle to be a game from Google. There was the Pacman anniversary doodle and the Chinese new year (Snake) doodle, both of which can be found using…Google.

The Roswell incident took place on July 8 1947 when several witnesses reported seeing flying saucers over Roswell, New Mexico. The incident sparked years of conspiracy theory and speculation, as well as numerous movies and even a rather naff TV show of the same name.

There are a few interesting and comedic secrets, or easter eggs as some would call them, hidden in the doodle, so it’s worth playing through it and trying out different things. (Hint: Use the radioactive canister with the animals!)
