The offline Dino game is one of the Easter eggs that appear when there is no network connectivity on Google Chrome. Now, with Microsoft coming up with a Chromium-based Edge browser, it seems they have incorporated a similar Surf game on it as well.

The Edge Surf game is akin to SkiFree, a skiing game released by Microsoft as part of its Entertainment Pack 3 for Windows in 1991. The Surf game enabled players to reveal the logo for the new Chromium-based Edge browser.

The new game is an arcade-style format where players surf to prevent being attacked by a sea monster Kraken. The player has to manoeuvre the path full of obstacles.

The Edge Surf game comes in three new modes —Zig Zag, Let's surf, Time Trial. It can be played with keyboard, mouse, touch or even gamepad.

In the Zig Zag mode, you can surf through several gates. The streak will reset if you miss a gate but you can play it till all the lives get exhausted.

During surfing, you can collect coins that will enable you to reach the end faster in the Time Trial mode. The Let's Surf mode lets you ride the waves as far as you can, avoiding obstacles and the Kraken. 

The Surf game can only be played when there is no internet but if you want to continue even when the connection is back just type type edge://surf/ in the address bar.
