Namco would like to share with you the amazing images taken during our Guinness World Record attempt alongside Channel 5’s ‘The Gadget Show’ on the side of East London’s Millennium Mills building.
Namco Bandai Games teamed up with the Gadget Show to not only successfully break it, but smash the world record for ‘The largest architectural projection mapped game’ featuring the world’s favourite and most recognised retro gaming character – Pac-Man.
The game was also controlled by giant retro joystick across the river, custom built for this world record attempt (pictures below and downloadable from the link).
There’s some amazing shots of the playable projection with presenters of the Gadget Show; Rachel Riley (Strictly Come Dancing 2013) and Jason Bradbury actually playing the world’s largest video game, which stands at 2,219 meters squared! Doubling the previous record.
The Show will air on 9th of December on Channel 5.
The caption is:
“To celebrate the 2014 launch of PAC MAN and the Ghostly Adventures, Channel 5’s The Gadget Show has broken the World Record for the largest playable game projection on London’s Victoria Dock building for its 250th episode which airs on 9th December at 8pm.”
“This is another important moment in history for the biggest character in gaming. PAC-MAN has inspired a generation of people across the world, with the highest awareness rate globally we are pleased to be bringing PAC-MAN back with ‘PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventures’ – Games need to be seen as a fun past time and having the most popular mascot back on the screens for a new generation of kids as well as parents that grew up playing PAC-MAN is very exciting. A TV show on Disney XD, video game, toy range, kids clothes and other superb stuff will be gracing the shelves of retailers over the coming few months”
