Pac-Gentleman: Talk About Retro Gaming…


Doktor A, who we’ve mentioned before, has outdone himself this time: he’s created an 8-inch replica of Pac-Gentleman, an arcade game from 1880.

Of course, the interesting part of the Pac-Man saga is that Lady Pac-Man was introduced in 1901, followed by Mrs. Pac-Man in 1911. It was not, however, until 1982 that Ms. Pac-Man was released. This is because it was still, for Pac-Women, considered unseemly for them to be running around mazes chasing and being chased by ghost-monsters…if they were unmarried.

You’ve come a long way, baby.
