    "...The Plus International Design Festival, which is running from the the 17th to the 21st of October..."
    According to my calendar, its from Wednesday to Sunday.
    I believe that Saturday and Sunday falls on a weekend.

    Haha! That's AMAZING!

    What's even MORE amazing is the fact that it's being hosted on the exact same street I work on! :D :D

    The boss used to do games programming.. Wonder if I can organise a friday-arvo excursion? :naughty:

    To think I kept walking past thinking, 'Just another nancy arty/design expo..'

    Well, I popped along, and luckily I had my trusty mobile phone cameara with me (OK, it's a Razr with crappy 320x240 resolution, but it does the job). I also had a chat with the guy who runs this little exhibit: Pete O'Donnell, an Acquisitions and Developer Relations Manager for CodemastersĀ®. He did this as a sort of personal hobby project --given that Pacman belongs to Namco, not Codemasters. :D

    The arena: actually quite small, really...

    Here's Pete dealing out the hats that will identify the willing victims volunteers as Pacman or Ghost...
    [​IMG]

    And here are two willing volunteers... Bless.
    [​IMG]

    When the volunteers enter the maze, Pete starts a tapedeck with the famous Pacman theme tune in authentic MIDI. Someone can shout Pacman directions over a microphone and amplifier...

    Well, that's it! Pete took pictures and video recordings of various intrepid gamers throughout the exhibition, which he will post after it finishes on Sunday, on http://www.pacman-plus.com
