Did you know that Google and Square Enix collaborated on the “8-Bit Map” April Fools’ joke? Yes, it’s true!
Although Google was the “brain” behind the idea, Square Enix was more than happy to assist them in making the map.
According to a U.S. Square Enix representative:
“It was a collaborative effort between Square Enix and Google. Google came up with the idea, then we provided the assets and helped them to create the map.”
