Pac-Manhattan is a large-scale urban game that utilizes the New York City
grid to recreate the 1980's video game sensation Pac-Man. This analog
version of Pac-man is being developed in NYU's Interactive
Telecommunications graduate program, in order to explore what happens when
games are removed from their "little world" of tabletops, televisions and
computers and placed in the larger "real world" of street corners, and
cities.
