Toru Iwatani, a Namco empoyee, widely claimed that he was inspired to create Pac-man after receiving a pizza with a missing slice out of it. He later admitted in a 1986 interview that it was a half-truth. For more information about Pac-man and its legend, go to

The inspiration for Pac-Man's computer game character came from the sight of a pizza missing a slice. to some sources that I have looked at, it was actually from a children's story about a creature that protected children from monsters by eating them. also there was an element in the story of kokoro or a life force that the creature used. AKA power pellets.

The game was developed primarily by Namco employee Toru Iwatani over 18 months. The original title was pronounced pakku-man and was inspired by the Japanese onomatopoeic phrase paku-paku taberu where paku-paku describes (the sound of) the mouth movement when widely opened and then closed in succession.Although it is often cited that the character's shape was inspired by a pizza missing a slice, he admitted in a 1986 interview that it was a half-truth and the character design also came from simplifying and rounding out the Japanese character for mouth, kuchi as well as the basic concept of eating. Iwatani's efforts to appeal to a wider audience - beyond the typical demographics of young boys and teenagers - would eventually lead him to adding elements of a maze.The result was a game he entitled PUCK MAN. When first launched in Japan in 1979 by Namco, the game received a lukewarm response, as Space Invaders and other similar games were more popular at the time.
