Pac-Man Meets Retro Art
I’ve been noticing a lot of projects in the last year that are put a unique spin on everyone’s favorite pellet-munching series, Pacman. (ie. The Pac-Man Rug).
This time around, a Toronto art group, Price Budget for Boys, spun an inpspiration from Piet Mondrian’s 1942-43 painting “Broadway Boogie Woogie,” (basically a collection of multicolored squares on a maze of yellow lines) and incorperated it into a the map design for a Pac-Man game clone named Pac-Mondrain.
Not only does this project offer a graphical remix, but it also replaced the traditional Pac-Man sound effects with a jazzy soundtrack to complete the experience.
In addtion to an opportunity to purchase the full game, the website features a downloadable demo along with some arcade-style art to accompany the game in case you would like a full cabinet for it. Also worth mentioning — if you buy the full version you get the tools you need to make your own Mondrian piece.
