Masaya Nakamura the founder of Namco and creator of the game Pac Man, to whom we paid tribute with the Christmas tree in 2015, has died at the age of 91.
The idea of Pac-Man came to Masayana Nakamura because he was persecuted by bullies at school and so he thought of a game where he could "beat them". Hence the relationship between Pac-Man and the ghosts.
The success of his famous video game was not dictated by chance, but due to the fact that at the time video games were all male and Pac-Man was made to be suitable for a female audience. This made Pac-Man cute and nice and non-violent since he only eats balls. Precisely for these reasons we thought it was right to remember this great artist!
