From the looks of this retro-mechanical machine, it looks like Pac-Man was in existence long before the 1980s. The Ghost Eater 1 is powered by gears, steam, cherries and power pellets, and is the perfect t-shirt for retro gaming fans.
You’ll notice that Pac-Man is leaking some oil and clearly requires constant maintenance, but would you expect anything else from such an old and complex mechanical contraption? The t-shirt was designed by Forent Bocognani, and is available over at Threadless for $20 (USD) in either a mustard color for guys, or a more pleasing light yellow for girls.
I was going back over some old posts, and believe that if you squint real hard at the old Pac-Gentleman game, that’s Ghost Eater 1 there.
