Piquant Pac-Man Fanart

26. February 2008 // // Filed under: ,

Legend has it that Pac-Man was inspired by a partially eaten pizza pie. Creator Toru Iwatani has stated this in several interviews. However, he also states that Pac-Man’s unmistakable shape was derived from the Japanese character for mouth, kuchi (口). Other hints at his inspiration was that he wanted to create a game that would attract women as well as men, thus theming his game around food.
Whatever the case, Pac-Man’s subject matter and simplicity makes for some diverse and delicious art. Still not sure how ghosts fit in with food, but, who’s complaining?
