 El museo del mítico Pac Man abre sus puertas

 

Y lo mejor de todo que para visitarlo no se tienen que mover de su PC! Es un museo virtual, una página web dedicada al ya mítico personaje de los VideoJuegos, el Sr. Pac Man. Hace ya 29 años que este simpático amiguito de pixels fue creado, por un Japones en aquel entonces de 27 años, Toru Iwatani.


Sabe como se le ocurrio la idea? Simple... estaba muerto de hambre, entre sus largas sesiones de diseño de juegos, se pidio una pizza, agarro el primer pedazo, y ahi quedo la forma del Pac Man en, una pizza incompleta, sin un triangulo, que ya se lo habia comido. De ahi surgió un ícono cultural de los 80.


En el sitio hay de todo sobre el Pac Man, coleccionables, entrevistas al creador, artículos a la venta en E-bay, maquinitas originales, disfrazes, en fin, todo lo que se les pueda ocurrir. Para explorarlo con tiempo, el museo del Pac Man en la web.

Take a stroll through the virtual Pac-Man museum

Not many video games have enough material created around them to garner the attention needed for a museum type display but Pac Man certainly has and that has led to the creation of an online Pac-Man museum. The site is not endorsed by Namco but if anyone would ever put an actual Pac-Man exhibit to go to, the person who runs this site would be the one to talk to about it. They look at the many Pac-Man collectibles that you can find out there, cover the game’s history and provide a great source for buying everything Pac-Man related. check it out at the link below.


Thanks to Shaggy for promoting the museum!

Happy Birthday Pac Man Cookies!

May 24, 2009

Here’s a great tutorial by Jocelyn over at Snack Or Die for some homemade Pac Man sugar cookies.

As for the ghosty shape, Jocelyn used a tulip shaped cookie cutter. Good to know since a tulip would probably be easier to find than digging around through the ol’ Halloween bin.


Pac-Man Museum open to the public!

May 22, 2009

Welcome to Pac-Man Museum - open to the public since 22th of May 2009 to commemorate the 29th birthday of Pac-Man. Any informations, inputs, contributions or anything related to Pac-Man will be greatly appreciated - please contact us.

When Toru Iwatani hungrily stared into his pizza box, he removed a slice of pizza and the idea for one of the greatest arcade games was born. At 27 years, the japanese game designer came up with the idea for Pac-Man - a game that became legend, and spawned numerous sequals and clones.
