Become Pac-Man

doydoy October 16, 2007 1

For anyone out there who dreamt of jumping through the TV screen and being in a video game, now you have your chance… well sort of.

On the 17-21 October 2007 the International Design Expo 2007 will be hosting ‘pacman-plus’, among other exhibitions and workshops.

This workshop with initially be a 5metre by 6metre maze, and requires 5 people to join in.

3 Players in the maze.

1 Player is Pac-man

2 Players are the Ghosts.

2 Players outside of the maze.

1 Player in radio contact with Pac-man.

1 Player controlling the 2 Ghosts.

There will be no pills to munch on the way, and the Ghosts do not actually get to eat Pac-man, however there will be 4 ‘Powerpills’ in the maze that allows Pac-man to eat (touch) Ghosts. 

Unlike the real game Pac-man, like us humans, only has 1 life, so when you get caught by the Ghost it is Game-Over.

For any of you interested in living out a childhood dream, you just have to get yourself to Birmingham. Entry is £5, and ‘pacman-plus’ participation is free.
