Pac-Man Week: “The Secret History of Video Games: Pac Gentleman”

The Secret History of Video Games: Pac GentlemanI think the artists, Doktor A., statement says it all:

“When this game was first released in 1880 it was so hugely popular in taverns and inns that the bank of England was forced to mint more threepenny bits to keep up with demand. The game was created by messrs Nam & Nam and Co. as a novelty pastime for the masses. Outdoing the previous top public house game of Shove Ha’penny. “

Pac-Man Week: Pac-Man Gloves

Pac-Man GlovesPac-Man & Ms. Pac-Man are in love. Keep your hands toasty with these fun fingerless gloves. Sherry of Baby Pop Designs custom makes each pair out of polar fleece as they’re ordered. She’s got some other fun couple-y designs like eggs & bacon (my favorite!) and salt & lemon slices. And for little geeks-in-training, Sherry offers super hero capes, also made-to-order.
