3D Pac Man Puts You in the Maze
You would think that people would be sick of Pac-Man by now, but we keep coming up with new versions and new ways to play the classic game. And now some enterprising folks have come up with a way to play Pac-Man in 3D. It’s surprisingly low-tech, though.
The installation was put conceived by Keita Takahashi, creator of Katamari Damacy for the recent Babycastles Summit at New York’s Museum of Art and Design.
Basically, you play this game in a square room, using all four walls as a screen. This puts you right in the center of the maze as you eat power pellets and chase ghosts to every side of you and on the ceiling too. The room and ceiling are covered in white cloth with the images projected onto them. You just have to play the game as if you are in it.
I imagine this would make some people feel a bit sick, but it still looks like fun.
