PAC-MAN has been played in many places all over the world, but none as crazy as this; projected against the side of an East London building and breaking the Guinness World Record for “The largest architectural projection mapped game’ in the process.
Namco Bandai Games and the Gadget Show teamed up for this successful attempt with Rachel Riley and Jason Bradbury taking control of a giant retro joystick to play the PAC-MAN projected 2,219 meters squared across the Millennium Mills building, more than doubling the previous record.
Lee Kirton, the PR & Marketing Director for Namco Bandai games was ecstatic after smashing the world record, stating, “This is another important moment in history for the biggest character in gaming. PAC-MAN has inspired a generation of people across the world, we are pleased to be bringing PAC-MAN back with ‘PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventures’.”
Lee went on to say, “Games need to be seen as a fun past time and having the most popular mascot back on the screens for a new generation of kids as well as parents that grew up playing PAC-MAN is very exciting. A TV show on Disney XD, video game, toy range, kids clothes and other superb stuff will be gracing the shelves of retailers over the coming few months.”
