Happy Birthday Pacman

Posted: May 22, 2010 in Computing, Historical / Genealogical

30 years young . and still one of those games you return to ..

Google as you may have noticed have a flash version signalling this great event

but the real creator .. Toru Iwatani is interviewed here

TimesOnline : “WE ARE in a cheerless office-block on the edge of a bleak, rain-swept industrial estate in the greyest corner of Yokohama, waiting to speak to a visionary whose lurid colours changed the world. We are expecting someone extraordinary to break through the dreariness. With a single stroke of genius, our man created the most recognisable icon of the computer age, shifted the global landscape of entertainment, and spawned an industry that is now worth more than $30 billion (£17 billion) a year.”..

So happy Birthday Mr Pacman.. and look after Ms Pacman.. will be her time soon enough..
