Easter Egg on Commerce.gov to Celebrate April's Arrival

Printer-friendly version
Basket of Easter Eggs

To celebrate the first day of April, Commerce.gov has a hidden Easter egg. Uncovering this surprise shouldn’t be too hard for anyone who played Contra on the original NES. (hint: up, up, down, down…)

Because our website is built upon the open-source platform Drupal, we are able to take advantage of the work of others to improve our website like our photo slideshow and commenting features at no cost to taxpayers. That even includes whimsical “improvements” like today’s Easter Egg. We used this Drupal module (warning: spoiler) to implement the game JavaScript.

The Easter egg code works on any Commerce.gov page, so take a tour while you are playing the game.

The Easter egg will only be available on Friday, April 1, so start looking for that Easter egg now.

Sorry...a little too late

This Easter egg was only for April Fools' Day. Sorry you missed it. If you want to try it somewhere else, I recommend you search for "Konami Code websites."
