The University of Winnipeg is creating a viral Internet movement based around a neat Easter egg hunt on their website.
The Division of Continuing Education has embedded a Konami Code into its website. In plain English — the code allows visitors to access secret, or hidden content by using select key strokes.
Facebook has a similar “cheat,” which users can perform by using the arrows on their keyboard.
The U of W’s Easter egg can be found by doing the following:
- Go to the University of Winnipeg Department of Continuing Education
- Enter the Konami Code (Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A)
- Reveal your surprise (Hint: a U of W video game to distract you from doing any work — hey, it’s Friday!)
The hunt has been receiving a lot of publicity … just look at the Google results.
