One of the most famous arcade games of all time Pac-Man's creator Toru Iwatani still carries the (formerly) top-secret original sketches of the iconic video game to game conferences in Holland .
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.
"Secret" Pac-Man Drawings See that 秘？ It means these documents are secret — well, more like they were secret.
The original title was pronounced (パックマン pakku-man) and was inspired by the Japanese onomatopoeic phrase paku-paku taberu where paku-paku describes (the sound of) the mouth movement when widely opened and then closed in succession.
The game was developed primarily by Namco employee Toru Iwatani over 18 months.
Upon its release, the game—and, subsequently, Pac-Man derivatives became a social phenomenon that sold a bevy of merchandise and also inspired, among other things, an animated television series and a top-ten hit single. Pac-Man is often credited with being a landmark in video game history, and is among the most famous arcade games of all time
