Pacman creator Toru Iwatani is in Holland to speak at The Festival of Games, and Dutch Gamedev magazine CONTROL has an amazing exclusive.
A peek at Iwatani’s original sketchbook for Pacman.
Interesting to note that the original design had:
- No ‘warp tunnel’
- The score/life display ‘cutting into’ the maze.
- A double ‘dead end trap’ on each side.
