It has been 40 years since PAC-MAN, Inky, Blinky, Pinky and Clyde first graced arcade game platforms and today, they are still as popular as ever with the PAC-MAN brand extending way beyond gaming into film and live events.
Despite no training as a programmer or designer, PAC-MAN designer, Toru Iwatani created not just a gaming icon but an everlasting icon that is as culturally relevant and addictive today as it was in 1980. With its gameplay and ghosts which were designed to attract women and children, PAC-MAN was one of the first games to introduce colourful and POP characters.
To mark the milestone a 40-year theme song has been released, ‘Join the Pac’, composed by world-renowned Japanese Techno artist Ken Ishii and accompanied by a music video directed by Yuichi Kodama. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nqEAQnxh6xc&feature=youtu.be
