Google celebrates Pac-Man’s 30th anniversary with playable logo

PC_MAN 30th Anniversary

21 May 2010 Google is celeating the 30th anniversery of PacMan with a playable logo on its home page.

A playable … logo? That’s exactly what web giant Google has today, in celebration of the 30th anniversary of Pac-Man‘s Japanese release. The doodle (Google’s term for its event and holiday-specific logos) is accessible on its main page and is a full 255-level game complete with a 256th level “kill screen,” just like the original coin-op.

The interactive doodle — a first for Google — is the brainchild of senior user experience designer Marcin Wichary, whose earliest exposure to Pac-Man came at age five while traveling across his native Poland with his father, a game technician, to repair arcade machines. Wichary worked with Google doodler (yes, it’s a real job) Ryan Germick to create the finished design.

So, for today at least, you can tell your boss: “I may be browsing the web and playing a game, but I’m also being part of something historic.”
