Icon202 April Fool's Day 2017

Google Maps is a sequel to their Pac-Man joke: this year, it's Ms. Pac-Man!

DeviantArt has a salute to the LOLWUT Pear.

The webcomic Grand Line 3.5 (think "Darths & Droids" but with One Piece) has two of its main characters playing an RPG based on the very NSFW La Blue Girl.

Kongregate now has VR capability, complete with printable VR goggles.

And, of course, ThinkGeek has its usual lineup of fake products. This year, they have:
  • SwearJar: a coin bank that curses at you when you use it
  • Tentacuddle Wrap: a leg wrap that makes you look like you have tentacles for legs
  • The Bicycle Horn of Gondor: exactly what it sounds like
  • Swim Desk: a swimming pool with a built-in computer desk
  • YASS Cat-apult: a plush cat that can be launched with a slingshot
  • Hot Pocket Sleeping Bag: exactly what it sounds like
  • Westworld Full-Body Snake Temporary Tattoo: requires two people to apply, comes with bonus "The Maze" tattoo
  • Where's Barb?: a Where's Waldo parody based on Stranger Things
  • Shazaam the Movie: a mockbuster based on Kazaam starring Sinbad

Derpibooru has changed its look to resemble DeviantArt.

The BBC has its usual 'April Fool's Day: 10 stories that look like pranks but aren't' page.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-39452788

Some great stories - but using The Daily Star and The Daily Express as reliable sources is taking a risk.

Spellstone has the A Very Serious Matter quest again this year! Players can battle against stick figures armed with sad bombs and killer chickens!

I seem to be the only person sharing anything...

The Game Grumps has a new look inspired by Apple, and a Let's Play to go with it.

Markiplier introduces 360-degree gaming, the future of Let's Plays!



Control the camera using the directional pad in the top left corner.

Pretty cool for an AFD video.

Phelous has been working through the library of very poorly animated movies from Dingo Pictures and Good Times Entertainment.

And now has found a version of Cabin Fever produced in the same style...

Hammeh has a couple Overwatch-related jokes: a macro for the in-game chat that lets players talk like Reinhardt, and a Korean web site offering a travel package of the real-life locations that inspired the game's levels.
