Pac Man has left the confines of the computer screen and has made his way to the streets of Manhatten. NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications graduate program developed this version to see what would happen when a computer game goes live.
Players stand in for Pac Man, Pinky, Blinky, Inky and Clyde. Five other players control the game utilizing maps of NYC and cell phones. At each intersection, players must call their controller to report on their location but NOT the location of Pac Man. The controller then provides direction. What a cool and creative concept!
