Collaborative Pack-man

Sean writes – “PACK-MAN is a modified version of the game PacMan in which five joysticks combine to move the single PacMan. In other words, if three people move their joysticks upand two people move theirs down, then PacMan will move up. If one person moves left and one person moves right, PacMan will do neither. The software remains essentially unchanged, although it runs much slower (to account for the speed of group decision-making) and graphics have been added across the bottom of the screen to communicate what each of the joysticks is doing at any given time.” [via] – Link.

    I thought they were gonna be controlling the ghosts, that would be fun. This sounds like it would be incredibly furstrating to play.

    This is kind of neat. I don’t want to knock the maker for creating this. But…

    It has come to my attention many times recently–all the ways people are using technology as “a means for uniting everyone at last into a common, concordant, and incontestable anthill.”
