If you pop over to UK Oak Doors you’ll see what looks like a normal retail site. The clue in the name. You can buy doors from this. In fact, you can buy doors that are made from oak and sold in the UK.
The doors are lovely but you might be wondering why on earth Geek Native is writing about such a thing. It might well be that UK Oak Door’s webmaster or marketing team are geeks. There are hidden geeky doors in the site and it takes a geek code to find them.
First up is the code; enter Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A to get going. Is that code familiar? Yup! That’s the famous Konami Code which I’m beginning to think should be tested on every site just in case there’s an easter egg.
There’s not one easter egg for this doorway site; I count at least three.
I wasn’t put off by the price and clicked on the check out button. Each one has a customised 404 page. More geek cred to UK Oak Doors but no actual geeky doors for us.
There’s no doubt that these geeky doors were meant to be found. It’s a nice idea and I’m all for companies catering to geeks. We are the taste makers of the digital world, after all.
I think there a few more doors they could have considered. What about;
- Planescape (and more geek cred to the door company if they knew that one)
- Platform 9 ¾s at King’s Cross Station
- The Gates of Hell
- Gates of Argonath
- The Rabbit Hole
Are there any you would add?
