When Pacman was released in the early 80’s, there was a tonne of merchandise, both official & unofficial. T-shirts, lunchboxes, a hit song…
And after a few years, it all disappeared.
It wasn’t until about 2000, when MAME got people playing old games again on their PC, that “Pacman Fever” started infecting pop culture again.
Today we have the latest appearance by Pacman…
This time… in just one Australian state… you can buy your own…
Sure, I’m not into “scratch card” gambling.
But how cute is that?
At least (for the true fans among us) they bothered to use the proper Pacman font. Respect!
They’re available from newsagents in Queensland, Australia.
