This Puts PacMan into Context

&#8220;The Madness of Mission 6&#8221;<br />
REPRINTED and only USD$10 in the Threadless sale.

Back in the early days of gaming graphics were abstractions of what was supposed to be happening in the game, this image, which is a T-Shirt available at Threadless puts PacMan into context. PacMan is an astronautic stuck on a  space ship being chased by his own inner demons. The only way to stay sane and survive is to consume huge quantities of anti anxiety pills. Some of the pills he takes allow him to temporarily conquer his inner demons and the hunted becomes the hunter, but as with all things this it fleeting, and his anxiety soon returns to haunt him.

At least that’s what it means to me…
