Pacman is one of the most infamous games from the 1980s. Its premise is simple: guide the yellow pearl gobbler around the maze and avoid the ghosts. It is a game that is ingrained in popular culture and one that does not appear to be attached to conventional temporal constraints, which makes the game just as relevant today as it was over 30 years ago.
An artist by the name of Dash Coleman has taken this beloved 80s icon and has re-imagined the ghosts that Pacman munches on to reflect popular characters from geek culture.
The results are really quite funky and if all of the licensing could be attained, it would make for one heck of a cool Pacman refresh. Namco, I hope you are listening and that you make this happen.
Can you name all of the geek culture icons who have been imagined as Pacman ghosts?
