PacManhatten

A friend at work recommended this link and told me to go and check it out, oh my god was it interesting. My all time favourite childhood game of the 80's Pacman ... Is being reincarnated by real people in Manhatten. This project is being developed by NYU's interactive telecommunications graduate program, to explore what happens when you take the games you see on your screens and transfer them into real life. 5 players are used in this game of pacman who are dressed as pacman and 4 ghosts, each player is associated with a controller who has a view of the map and coordinates with the player on where he should go next via cellphone. Players relay their position back to HQ and their controller to update game progress. For more information [link]

  • I LOVE PACMAN! lol

    I like video games in general, but I'm still in the super nintendo phase, and refusing to advance :P

    Really.. the playstation ( and whatever comes after it) are complicated! too many buttons, squares, triangles and whatnots!

    But my all time favorite was the nintendo....the one that had lotsa games without putting a tape in. Speaking of that... I should get mine fixed...

    do you know if they still sell them? or able to fix them ( even though i'll be the laughing stock of the century)? :P
