Pac-Man + Zork = Pac-Txt

One day, this guy named RicMoo came home from a party where they had joked about mashing up Pac-Man with Zork [wiki]. Being a little drunk, RicMoo decided to actually make the game:

Wth?! Why would anyone invest the time and effort to build such a useless game?

Well, I had just got back from a party where the concept of a Pac-Man + Zork hybrid came up as a joke. So, being 2am with a little alcohol in my system, I thought it'd be funny to code it up (as far as I could before collapsing). So, a couple hours later it was looking complete-ish (minus the ghosts' AIs and graphic assets). The next morning [read: aftenoon] when I woke up, since I have an inability to realize sunk costs, I decided to throw some crappy AI in for the ghosts, put a few graphics on it (courtesy of FastIcon.com) and voila! A domain name purchase or two later, and here we go.

Here it is: Pac-Txt (hint: look around) - via Waxy

The funniest thing to me about this story is that he was at a party where they were discussing something like this :)

I wish I was there...
