Remember Pac-Man’s 40th anniversary in May 2020? There are many special events and appearances by the most beloved character.
Pac-Man even made a special appearance in Minecraft DLC, where the new generation of gamers gets to know the man who started it all.
Bandai also brought Pac-Man Live Studio to Twitch under a partnership signed with Amazon Games.
At the same time, Pac-Man appeared on Bandai America’s Tamagotchi Toy. Our beloved character also made a comeback in “Pac-Man and the Ghostly Snack Attack” and “Pac-Man Stories” on Amazon’s Alexa.
There’s no news yet on when the next anniversary like this will take place. But we have here something that could help you with the countdown!
Ladies and gentlemen, introducing the Pac-Man clock. We have here all the options you can have!
Most of these Pac-Man clocks are digital, which means you can read the numbers even while you’re half-slept early in the morning.
For starters, these Pac-Man digital clocks don’t require skip counting by five. Digital clocks tell the exact time down from the seconds of it.
Of course, there are also Pac-Man analog clocks for those who prefer the traditional time-telling manner.
As a bonus, these analog clocks take room aesthetics to the next level. They have vinyl for the material.
The designs are also artistic in that Pac-Man is cut out from the vinyl. The handcrafting skills are exceptional.
You may want to hang the Pac-Man analog clocks in your living room, for they make a good conversation piece. After all, Pac-Man is the most relatable topic; even those who haven’t met before could talk about him.
Imagine, he was born in 1980 and instantly became a hit! For example, ABC made a Pac-Man TV show. There’s even the Pac-Man cereal from General Mills.
And do you remember when the “Pac-Man Fever” made it to the No. 9 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart in 1982.
For many, Pac-Man paved the way for a more inclusive gaming industry. And, we’re talking here about the 1980s.
According to accounts, the years before Pac-Man’s launch, video games cater to boys. Seeing the need for more inclusivity, Pac-Man’s creator Toru Iwatani wanted to target girls and all non-gamers too.
And what is that one thing that is relatable to everyone? Eating. That’s why Pac-Man does what he does.
Have you noticed how even Pac-Man’s shape has a food pattern?
If those tidbits made you look at Pac-Man in a way you haven’t done before, please check out these Pac-Man clocks. They can be a testament to how you love the man, after all.
