Google has devised a new doodle, a video game puzzle in order to give tribute to Stanislaw Lem, a known Polish science fiction short stories writer.
Not only they are paying tribute to Lem, but by introducing this new doodle, Google is also marking the 60th anniversary of Lem’s first book, Cyerberiad, which is on a robot universe.
New doodle is based on this book concept and Google has designed an animated character in this doddle, which resembles Lem. He has been shown hero in the puzzle game, who would come across mammoth robot and fight with him.
Google said they have also users of the game could also interact with animated Lem by using their cursor. At the end of series, users would come across a message, which would credit Lem’s book and also Daniel Mroz, who has illustrated these characters.
Stanislaw Lem is celebrated writer, who has done great work. He has written lots of poems, short stories and philosophy and satire, but the main book, which made him taste his first success, was The Cyberiad, which was published in 1965.
It would not be the first time that his work would be used for some form of media as Solaris, which is his other famous book was used as a concept for a movie by the Russian director Andrei Tarkovsky in 1972. Again it was remade in 2002 but by the US director Steven Soderbergh.
Later this book was translated in to 41 different languages and has record breaking sales across the globe with more than 27 million copies being sold.
In 2006, he got diagnosed with some heart disease. At that time he was 84 and could not survive the disease and died.
Google hopes to do justice with Lem’s book with their new series of doodle.
