Safety Blanket: Pac-Man Inventor Still Carries Around His Original Sketches Of The Game

June 23, 2010


This is Tōru Iwatani. He invented Pac-Man 30 years ago and still carries around his original "top secret" sketches of the game in a notebook. Me? I invented cool 28 years ago and still push my balls around in a wheelbarrow.

Iwatani was a speaker at the recent Festival of Games. To the surprise of the conference's host, Iwatani was carrying the original Pac-Man sketches with him.

See that 秘? It means these documents are secret

Secret schmecret, the game's been out forever. This isn't 1979 you know. Or is it? No, it's not. If this were 1979 we wouldn't be having this orgy on the internet, we'd be doing it at your parents' house with a bunch of blow (I think I kissed your dad).

Hit the jump for two more shots of the documents the government doesn't want you to see.
