8-bit Retirement Home

Doctor Popular brings us Pac-Man’s mum sitting on the porch of the Namco retirement home.

But what’s up with Inky’s picture up on the wall? A digital affair to remember? A 7-bit character taking advantage of a younger 8-bit sprite? Inky did always seem to die first – a little PEEK and POKE? Maybe the whole ghost thing was a metaphor.

Or is it a Dorian Grey scenario? EPA&AtB found this picture recently of Inky in his old age (sorry, so not an octopus).

I bet video game characters are like professional athletes and are all beat up when they retire from the game.
